Ok, so this post is a bit late ( several months late) as i finished my project and i’m currently in 5th semester. Not too many details, because the posts purpose is to be short.
The idea is simple – i want to be able to communicate wirelessly over a distance of over 150m using an own-built wireless booster – the cantenna. The system overview is even simpler:

I needed to link 2 tables in MySQL and i thought it would be soooo easy, but it turned out it’s not. I was getting a lot of weird errors but the one in the title was the most persistent. Continue reading “MySQL Error Number 1005 Can’t create table ‘.mydb#sql-328_45.frm’ (errno: 150)”
I was in class just the other day, when a classmate comes to me and says : “how would you like one of my usb wireless adapters, i don’t know if it’s still working or anything, but you can have it”. I was like, “sure”. I just got it today. As the title says, it’s a Siemens Gigaset USB Adapter 300. I didn’t even knew that Siemes makes wireless adapters.

On a previous post, i talked about my new phone. This post is about rooting it. Why root it, how to root it, how to unroot it and how to check if it’s rooted. Continue reading “Rooting my Samsung Galaxy Y”
My networking teacher said that it would be cool to turn one of the routers that we have been playing with (Asus RT-N16) into an AP so that the class would connect to it instead of the schools network nearest AP.
Why do that? So we can see who is accesing what, get some statistics on that and probably to make a “wall-of-shame” where we could write the students usernames and passwords.

Since we started our database courses (last semester), the teacher introduced us to XAMPP or LAMPP (if on linux) – it is an Apache distribution that contains MySQL, PHP, Perl and an FTP server (proftpd). It’s intended to be easy to install and use and it’s good for developers. Continue reading “LAMPP or XAMPP – How to”
I finally got an Android phone to play with. Welcome to this century, right? It’s, as the title says, a Samsung Galaxy Y S5360. The Y stands for Young. Get your full specs here. Bought it for a cheap price from a classmate. I’ll probably find out the next days why so cheap, but it works. I like it. Continue reading “Samsung Galaxy Y S5360”
I remember my first time doing wardriving (not that long ago). I only used my laptop and my mothers car. Of course i did everything manually, like writing down every AP and MACs and so on.
Since we got some new “toys” here at school, my networking teacher dared me to do some wardriving using a bluetooth GPS and an external wireless adapter. See my last 2 posts for info on them.

I wanted to play with this for a long time, since i was looking for a good packet-injecting wireless adapter (mine can’t do that). It is probably the most recommended usb adapter for doing fun wireless stuff. Now, i finally got it! Ok, not me personally, but the school got it, but it’s almost the same for me. They got it from here , if you were wondering.

Got a new “toy” from the school to work on some projects. It’s a bluetooth GPS. Really small.
