Recent Work (End 2019)

Selfmade Modem

DIY USB-LTE Modem

Due to the lack of internet and phone connectivity it is not easy to document my work on this blog. The only mitigation is using a mobile connection. And no, phone calls with the provider are not really helpful. Every conversation begins with the same conclusion. The router does not synchronize. No progress since 27 November.

To provide upstream connectivity to the local network I decided to connect a usb-lte stick to an odroid device which in turn is connected to the upstream socket of an old wifi router device.

This way each terminal device in the local net even if wired or wireless has connection to the global net.

Simulating Traffic

Another project is the simulation of street traffic on a canvas map. This project has been in the queue for a long time. Because it is very time consuming and needs some calculations I can hardly say when I can write more about it. The good news is I had a little time to get back in here over the holidays

Maybe I will publish some source code at some day, but it is still very experimental.

36C3 - Resource Exhaustion

At the end of 2019 the 36C3 congress took place in East Germany and has many good presentations online on its website. Even the performance on stage has improved over the last years.

In Germany most popular are the talks BahnMining - Pünktlichkeit ist eine Zier and Hirne Hacken. Both deal with a physiological influence of our society. Depending on the level of interest there are a lot of other talks with more techniqual aspects.
