Re: Kindle for 72hr bug out bag ?

While there are many more opportunities to exploit and entire OS, the Kindle software is explicitly designed with data trawling in mind. Were there a way to manually hack and disconnect one from Amazons network, reliably and without Amazon fighting back by resetting changes when synchronising, then ...

Re: Kindle for 72hr bug out bag ?

And as far as privacy goes, I tend to assume that if you are online, you have just shared with the world to some degree. This week's Sunburst hack shows that it does not matter how paranoid you are, you can still lose data as the US military have just learned. It is why it look me so many years to ...

Re: Kindle for 72hr bug out bag ?

Researching into these ePaper readers I see the competition has been slimmed down to just a few, and they all trawl you private data (especially Bezos). You might be on to something about using a smartphone (which I would likely have with me). I've searched online and none of the reviews delve into ...

Re: Kindle for 72hr bug out bag ?

Thank you for your contributions.

I meant escapism, not learning. My 72hr bag is designed for a city environment, not rural, so I have one book to read, but it might not be enough, and two adds weight.

I just thought that a Kindle might be better, and wanted to know peoples experiences.

Kindle for 72hr bug out bag ?

I was told to bring two of everything, if possible. While this is a good idea, it adds weight, in fact just removing one (of two) books and a few other items I saved >500kg !

I would like to know if an Amazon Kindle (water resistant) is suitable for replacing a book(s) in a 72hr bug out bag ?

Re: Laser engraver for canned goods?

Costs are down to a few hundred pounds now. There are plenty of materials that these machines will etch into, plenty of uses for this kind of kit, I would consider buying one, I just wondered if this was in the affordability orbit of the community ?

Re: Cool box for temperature sensitive confectionary

I simply forgot that there had to be an existing imbalance to maintain, think that the insulation would be enough.

It's seems silly now.

Laser engraver for canned goods?

Does anybody use a laser engraver for their canned goods?

I am unsure if this is a subtractive manufacturing technique, or if it can apply branding to an alloy, but would make marking canned items very handy:

Drying out flexible PVC hose

I like to have everything as clean as possible, and I can stand the thought of water droplets remaining in the flexible PVC hosepipe tube that I use. It is only one metre in length, and it's transparent (so I can see the water droplets, especially when they dry and leave their calcium deposits) and ...
