Solar powered home

Anurag Bhatia
And breaking silence over here, last few months went quite busy. I travelled to Cambodia, Singapore, Taiwan and Hong Kong recently for various tasks from APNIC’s IXP workshop in Cambodia to SGNOG in Singapore, APNIC 44 in Taiwan and so on. Apart from this, I went for solar power setup at home here in Haryana since grid has been quite unstable (specifically this year). I think the overall grid is OKish but it’s quite bad in my city due to the construction of an overhead road from where a high voltage line is crossing.

Three days without laptop / Repair of damaged Macbook Pro screen

In Hong Kong and right on the day when I was leaving for Hong Kong - I noticed a bug in my Macbook Pro’s screen. A real insect yes! ![img_20160907_151934]https://storage.googleapis.com/abcdc-web-static/content/post/2016/09/three-days-without-laptop-repair-of-damaged-macbook-pro-screen/images/IMG_20160907_151934-scaled.jpg) This was irritating. Hard to know how it actually got inside but may be from bottom side of laptop which was missing two screws for a while which I recently bought from UK and added. Apple support couldn’t answer on how it got there.

Creating a cable for fast USB charging

When I was in US last time, I picked a nice charger with it’s own backup from Amazon. It’s PowerGen charger with a storage capacity of 8400mAh with two USB ports for output (one with 2Amps output and other with 600mA with 5V standard USB). This is a amazing product since 8400mAh is really huge amount power. My phone’s battery has a capacity of 1750mAh and theoretically speaking this can charge battery from 0 to full around 4 times.
