Review: Third Eye Crime

Posted on April 30th, 2014 by Jan Van Regenmortel (Sangwizz)

I’m not the type of guy that likes to play stealth games. But when I heard of “Third Eye Game” being released on the Appstore ($2,99)  something caught my eye; it was described as a noir, paranormal stealth game. That’s quite a mouthful, is it not? What this means will become clear if you choose to continue reading this post.

Being Creative: Combining VPN and wireless technology to create an “overseas” SSID

Posted on April 24th, 2014 by Jan Van Regenmortel (Sangwizz)

Recently, I had some people over and as all of the people I know are smartphone owners, some one passed a perception test and noticed one of my wireless networks: “usa.[myhomedomain.com]“. So, when I was asked why that wireless network was called “usa.[myhomedomain.com]“, I explained that, if a device connects to this particular network, it actually goes online using a gateway somewhere overseas in the US of A. (I live in Europe). I carefully described how I achieved this, and more importantly, how easy it was to accomplish this. Considering most of the people I know are doing something I.T. related, most of them knew all the different parts of the setup, even knew how to configure them. Oddly, it never occured  to them to combine these elements into a workable, reliable, secure, geo-unblocking solution.

And that is exactly why I wrote this small article. Everyone knows about VPN’s. Everyone knows about wireless. Almost no one thinks about combining them into dedicated SSID, serving as a secure line directly to another country. If you don’t see the benefits of such a setup, at least admit it is kinda neat.
