This is a guide that you can refer to even if you have other MacBook Pros. The screw and hardware positions might be slightly different according to the version you have but the process is more or less the same. Do refer to the video guides that I’ve recorded to see some hands on action. It is a relatively simple process should you have the correct tools and applications.
I’ve just faced this problem yesterday. For app developers out there who are using the Twitter API for their apps or normal webmasters who need the API for their plugins and scripts, you will find that Twitter requires the account to have an associated mobile number before it allows access levels higher than “Read”. For those living in countries that are supported, great for you. For others, activating your mobile number can be a really difficult or even an impossible task. You will most likely face either one of these problems when trying to add a mobile number:
- Your carrier isn’t listed
- Your carrier is “listed” but it doesn’t work giving error “Sorry, we don’t have a connection to your carrier yet!”
- You waste money to send a message using the long code method but it doesn’t work.
- You submit a form for review but after waiting and waiting there isn’t any reply.
I’ve moved from a shared hosting provider to a virtual private server (VPS) provider for quite some time already. Having purchased an unmanaged solution, I had to learn how to set everything up myself. The first time was pretty time consuming as I was worried mainly about security and thus spent much time researching for the best practises before letting my VPS go live. Since then, I’ve moved host twice and during these moves, I spent much time again doing the very same thing. Not wanting to spend any more wasted time researching the same things over and over again, I decided to document the steps I took. Here are some steps that you can consider and follow before letting your VPS or DIY NAS go live.
Do you want absolute privacy when viewing a display monitor? Learn how to make a special monitor that only you can see. Be prepared to invest some time, effort and money before you can start to enjoy your privacy. Good things don’t come by freely. Do be prepared for people to always think that you’re viewing something wrong once you’ve the special monitor. I mean seriously, why would you need such privacy? Read on for the how to video!
Now that we have set up our basic firewall and port forwarded the necessary ports, we will now learn how to make use of that to enable data communication from outside the local area network (LAN). There are many protocols and ways to do this; SFTP is my chosen method and that is what you will be learning today.
Now that you have learnt how to enable global access to your server, you should prepare your server to be ready for the outside world. There are many different measures that you can take to prevent your server from being compromised. One of the more “straightforward” methods is to setup a firewall. This tutorial will show you and guide you to do just that.
Ready so say “hello world” proper? In order to access your DIY NAS or home server or game server or whatever that is hosted at your house, you will need to do something called “port forwarding”. Port forwarding is usually performed and set up at the router level. Since there are hundreds and thousands of routers, I will be recommending you a few sites that you can take reference from. I will be using a popular custom router firmware (DDWRT) to illustrate the different steps that you will need to take in order to forward your ports correctly.
