NBN from Spintel + TPG HG659 modem

Just a quick feedback on my recent experience with Spintel and TPG NBN setup. I had account with TPG in the past, but had to cancel it due to my travel overseas. I was left with their HG659 modem hoping to get reconnected upon my return and use my device. Unfortunately, they do not provide this option and I would have to use a new […]

Basic invoicing in Aus

Invoicing is a very boring job to do, at least for me. I want to have it as simple as posible and certainly do not want to use Word or Excel spreadsheet for it. Coming from Czech Republic, I was used to an excellent service called Fakturoid. Unfortunately, I have not found a similar product in Australia. Even today, eight years later, the products are […]

Scam me? I’ll track you.

Believe it or not, there are people that have nothing better to do than scam other people. Whether they do it because of their financial needs or just for a bit of fun, I personally do not care and consider it wrong. Some of the scam I come across are 1:1 – interactive chats (phone/txt).  Depending how sophisticated the scammer is, you might be able […]

E-mails and DMARC, DKIM, SPF (basics)

E-mails, the “outdated” communication channel that still sticks around. If you wish to set up almost any account today (2019), you have to have an e-mail address or mobile number already in 99% of the cases. You would most likely have one already and there is a high a chance of it being from Google, Outlook.com or Yahoo. If you are from non-english speaking country, […]

Messaging apps and privacy

While reading about Edward Snowden, I came across his app for android devices called Haven. Haven app uses Singal app for sending data it collects and as you would expect, Signal uses end-to-end encryption. More importantly, it uses The Singal Protocol which is open source and although the app is not the market leader in terms of a number of users, it certainly tops when […]

Malware WeKnow on Mac

I spent some time cleaning friends Macbook from weKnow malware and wanted to share this handy tips with you, should you need it. Basically, it hijacks local Chrome policy and you need to remove/edit them via terminal/cmd line. cmd + spacebar (search for “terminal” app) use following commands: defaults delete com.google.Chrome <nameOfThePolicy> defaults write com.google.Chrome <naemOfThePolicy> -string “https://www.google.com/” example: defaults write com.google.Chrome HomepageLocation -string “https://www.google.com/” […]

Internet of Money vol.2

I have finished listening to an audiobook – Internet of Money vol.2 by Andreas Antonopoulos. It uses a different structure as opposed to the volume one and I consider it to flow better and be less disruptive. There are great examples, some of which have been discussed in version one but I still encourage people to take it off the shelf and get familiar with […]

SECURITY: two factor authentication (2FA)

2FA – optional for now, a must in near future We live and operate in a digital world where security should be our priority number one, but let’s be honest, it rarely is. How many of you have really strong passwords that do not repeat and are changed frequently? I know! It is a painful, boring and time-consuming process. Well, luckily there are services like LastPass and […]

How to back up iPhone to external HDD on iMac

iTunes is storing backups by default on local (system) hard drive. That takes heaps of space, so the external HHD would be better choise. To prevent this from happening, a symbolic link has be to created and point onto a folder in external hdd. Following command in a terminal will do the trick. ln -s /Volumes/1TB/Backup ~/Library/Application\ Support/MobileSync/ Just note the following: 1TB = name of […]

My friend as personal assistant (VA)

So here is the idea. I’ve read that in near future we might see personal assistant using our own voice. Now that’s cool and weird a the same time. Wouldn’t we much rather hear some voice we love to hear? Why our own then? What about someone from our closest family, friend or love? Disclaimer: I don’t take responsibility for any word listed in this […]

Success judged by results

We measure success by results. We tend to be driven by results rather than a journey. But once we shift our focus from the future (result stage) into present moment, not only we are far more efficient and successful in what we do, we also grow and become wealthier than ever before, regardless of the result. Experience, knowledge and growth is our ultimate wealth. PaCh
