Samsung GT-S5300: what else can be done with Android 2.3.6 in 2021?

By chance, I got my hands on a Samsung GT-S5300 smartphone, which also has a working battery - reason enough to put a SIM card in an adapter and see what can still be done with a phone from 2012 in 2021. First, the most important technical data: the Samsung ...

Email archiving under macOS with Mailbackup X

Unlike for Windows with Mailstore, there is no corresponding free solution for macOS (or I have not found it despite longer research) - Mailbackup X is a paid alternative. The functionality is similar - first the respective accounts have to be created, then there are still settings how often and where the ...

Especially important in the home office: functioning Internet. AVM has now released Fritz!OS 7.25, a new version after 7.21. Among other things, this should make the connection more stable, which seems to be the case after a first test run: the rate of "corrected DTU" is significantly better than before.

Lenovo Yoga 7i Slim Carbon: Ultrabook in a hands-on test

There are many 13.3" notebooks, but in the weight category of ultra-light models under one kilogram, the selection becomes smaller: if there are currently just over 1,900 variants to choose from in the sizes up to 14.1", the variety drops to 70 models if you set the filter to a weight of up to 1 KG. As the name suggests, the ...

TrueNAS: Easily set up ZFS replication over Wireguard VPN

Wireguard has also found its way into TrueNAS (previously FreeNAS) via FreeBSD. Although there is no interface to configure it directly, a suitable configuration file can be loaded via a post-init script and then also establishes the connection. The advantage over the previous solution: no virtual machine is needed, which in turn has its own updates...

Hybrid LTE homebrew for more Internet speed: Speedify

Unlike the open source solution using OpenMPTCPRouter that I described in the last post, Speedify is a commercial solution based on a VPN client. The principle is the same: two lines are bundled, the data is routed via an endpoint and the speed is improved that way. Again, the setup is the same: a VDSL connection with 250 MBit/s and a ...

Hybrid LTE for more Internet speed: OpenMPTCProuter

With Hybrid LTE, Telekom offers a tariff that combines a DSL connection with data transmission via LTE. I wondered whether it would be possible to implement something like this myself and came across the openmptcprouter project. The idea here is to bundle multiple internet connections and increase bandwidth that way. In my setup there is one ...

Telekom MagentaEINS Plus: All-round package with 1-month notice period

Anyone who has already taken out a Deutsche Telekom DSL contract and also wants to be mobile on the Deutsche Telekom network can, under certain conditions, get "MagentaEINS Plus" in two expansion stages. A key advantage: a contract term of only 1 month with a notice period of 4 weeks. Even if the previously used contract still has a longer term, this "disappears" - in my case was ...

From version 12: FreeNAS becomes TrueNAS

FreeNAS has been a popular storage solution for years, even for home use - I myself have been using the system with four hard drives in HP Proliant micro servers for several years. With version 12 FreeNAS becomes TrueNAS - iXsystems merges the commercial and free branch of the NAS operating system. The advantage is supposed to be: instead of two separate ...
