Protecting Your Data With Alibaba Cloud KMS

Electronics

I recently got a replacement case for my Audi 3-key remote. The kit only comes with the actual housing, so the idea is to replace everything inside. The only “gotcha” I found when replacing the electronics was about how to hold the new one in place again, as I needed to melt the plastic bit […]

Impermeabilizar Cerillas

Personal

Uno de los principales inconvenientes es el no poder hacer fuego porque tus herramientas quedan inservibles cuando se mojan. Una solución clásica es llevar encima cerillas/fósforos impermeables (a prueba de agua). Lo normal es que este tipo de cerillas sean caras […]
