Make a cheap TOR anonymizer — BYTESEC Labs Inc

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/12/02

I had a few friends ask if they could buy a cheap travel router that protects their internet activity as they travel around the globe. So my criteria:

  1. Cheap (< USD 20)
  2. Portable (pocket size)

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/12/02

Thanks Simon Carter for this info:

C14 (male; left) and C13 (female; right)

C14 (male; left) and C13 (female; right)

Viewing a socket (line or chassis) from the front, i.e. the side that the plug fits into, the connections are:

  • Left Pin: Neutral
  • Centre Pin: Earth
  • Right Pin: Live

If you wire it, the colours depend on where you live. I live in the Netherlands so this shortened table does apply:

IEC (most of Europe) AC power circuit wiring color codes.

Function label Color, IEC Color, old IEC
Protective earth PE green-yellow green-yellow
Neutral N blue blue
Line, single phase L brown brown or black

Longer tables and infographics are here:

0.5W 12V 56-Lumen 7×3528 SMD LED Car White Light Bulb (Pair) – Free Shipping – DealExtreme

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/12/02

Since they work nice as car lamps, they are quite robust for weather conditions, so they work well as garden lamps too. So we have 69 of them in our deck.
