Delivery screw up by vPost

Delivery screw up by vPost

Reading Time: 4 minutesToday, I received the Loop Pointer I have bought from USA. There was a screw-up in the delivery method, in my opinion, though. My family was not at home to receive the parcel.

DNS and more VPN woes

DNS and more VPN woes

Reading Time: 2 minutesRecently, I have been having trouble with my internet service. Twice a day, I was kept disconnected from the Internet.
