Not so long ago we heard news about huge password breaches like Collection #1. The scale is quite concerning but this type of password breaches sadly happen quite often. There are even sites like have i been pwned? where you can find out how many times your passwords have been leaked.

For almost 6 years, this blog had been hosted at Blogger, and it was a pretty decent experience: you can get up and running with your blog pretty fast. They supported using your own domain which was exactly what I was looking for. However, I was not so comfortable hosting my site on Google: since they decided to kill Google Reader, I was a bit skeptical that they will shut down the service at any point. Anyway, I had to do something with the blog: it was still using HTTP and, since HTTPS if finally gaining traction (thank you Let’s encrypt!), I was planning to configure SSL sooner than later.
I’ve been the proud owner of a Raspberry Pi for several months now. Since I bought it, I’ve looking for ways of replacing all the functionalities my old TV-attached laptop had, which basically were: torrent downloader, DLNA server and YouTube player. This device has a very low power consumption so this would be great news.
Since recently I’ve been playing more with my modest android smartphone, I started suffering from his lack of internal storage memory. His 150 MBs quickly become insufficient since it comes with plenty of pre-installed applications that can’t be erased unless you root your phone.
