Home DNA kits that can help you discover your family ancestry are popular now, with two of the most used being kits offered by ancestry.com and 23andme.com.

System upgrades can be exciting, but they can also be frustrating. They can offer you many new goodies, yet they can also take away a feature that was much beloved or change something just enough so that it no longer works. This leads to a question of whether you should upgrade as soon as it’s available or whether you should wait until all the kinks are worked out. Do you upgrade your system software right away? Our Opinion Alex plays it smart and has a machine set aside for immediate updates, yet he typically waits...

This is a sponsored article and was made possible by Recovery Toolbox. The actual contents and opinions are the sole views of the author who maintains editorial independence, even when a post is sponsored. Archive file formats like the RAR format used by WinRAR are a blessing and a curse. On the plus side, they let us easily move and share multiple files as easy as sharing a single file. They also compress those files, saving hard drive space and making them easier to move around. The nature of formats like these also makes them dangerous. If a...

In 2010, two Papa John’s pizzas cost 10,000 Bitcoins – around 41 US dollars. Today, a $41 purchase would cost just a tiny fraction of one Bitcoin (0.0390 as of August 2019), and 10,000 bitcoins might be worth well over 100 million dollars (or well under, depending on the day). Holding your money in cryptocurrency can be a real rollercoaster, which is why stablecoins have gotten increasingly popular over the last several years. Stablecoins are cryptocurrencies designed specifically to prevent big changes in their value, usually by tying themselves to another asset, like the U.S dollar...

Distributed Denial of Service or “DDoS” attacks sequester a server’s resources through abusive digital communication tactics. These types of attacks are the computer world’s organized raid. Numerous bothersome anti-like actions combine to create formidable enough threat to halt a seasoned server in its tracks. Worst of all, there happen to be multiple means of waging such guerilla web warfare against unsuspecting servers. Luckily, servers can be configured to fight back. Nginx, a highly popular server system for Unix machines, comes with enough built-in functionality to greatly limit the effectiveness of DDoS attacks. Here are a few effective options for handling such threats on an Nginx-powered...

This just seems like a case of “damned if you do; damned if you don’t.” If Apple offers no protection for kids’ apps, they get heat for caring more about profit than children’s welfare, and if they offer protections, then they aren’t doing well by app developers. Starting next month Apple planned to implement new rules for children’s apps: they would be banned from external analytics software and prevented from adding ads. But this has app developers asking how they’ll make money if they can’t collect information on kids and can’t advertise to them. Apple’s Rule Changes ...

Teacher-rating websites can be a mixed bag. Sometimes they give you useful insight into how a course works and what to expect if you choose it. Sometimes they’re simply dumping grounds for students to vent their frustration, regardless of whether the teacher is actually good or not.

Garlic routing is an improved browsing technology that leverages multiple encryption routes to anonymize your Internet traffic from corporations, governments, hackers and ISPs. In this regard, it has a similar purpose as onion routing, which uses Tor-encrypted networks to deliver anonymity. However, there are a few key differences. In onion routing, the data passes through intermediary nodes which are peeled back one at a time much like an onion. Also, Tor uses bidirectional tunnels to ensure more efficient memory usage, low bandwidth overheads and centralized controls. What Is Garlic Routing? Garlic routing is an extension...

Most people are aware of the free photo storage offered by Google. However, many of you, even those of you who are Amazon Prime subscribers, don’t realize that Amazon has free unlimited photo storage, even of full-resolution RAW image files. With Google, you only get 15GB of storage if you don’t want the images to be compressed. If you compress the images, you can have unlimited storage, but the photos will not have the quality they initially did. If you would like to move your Google photos (or copy them for another backup), you’ll need to download them from Google and move them into the...

Distance-measuring instruments have evolved a great deal from the rudimentary surveyor’s wheels to contemporary laser rangefinders and theodolites. Although accurate distance measurement still remains expensive and unwieldly for professional applications, the modern smartphone has nevertheless miniaturized and simplified this complicated engineering problem. A smartphone is now all you need to quickly tackle macro measurement tasks such as estimating networking/electrical cable runs within the house or figuring out how far your daily jogging route takes you. Unfortunately, for every distance-measurement app that is barely competent, there are a dozen that are virtually useless. Luckily for you, we have waded knee deep through the mediocrity.

Since Docker containers are little boxes of software, so to speak, you can copy and move them around from computer to computer. However, this is not often discussed, probably because larger organizations set up their own repositories, where they can customize their own images and distribute across their servers as they see fit. But you shouldn’t have to go through the trouble of setting up your own line of distribution if you occasionally need to move one or more containers around. It may be that you worked on a Docker instance on your local computer and decided to move it to...
