Wireshark Tutorials

The introduction to wireshark is to introduce protocols, and lead people to the existing material and ask for more detailed desires.

Protocols 101 Wikipedia thinks it is long but not as long as college courses but it covers the basic level stuff but the article should open the rabbit hole a bit.

A great Compendium of Protocols is here and very usefull in under standing what wireshark shows you

This Beginners' guide will show you how to add data to OpenStreetMap. Tutorials are available in many languages which you can select from the table at the top of this page.

You need a computer connected to the Internet and some time to gather information and then enter it. A GPS unit and connecting cable are purely optional, but will be required if you want to collect data that way. Given the excellent aerial photography available in the editors these days a GPS is less important than in the early days of the project.

The data you add to OpenStreetMap improves the free world map for everyone, whether it's a small correction or thousands of roads added over time. Thank you for making OpenStreetMap just that bit better!

There is a panel on the right of every page of the tutorial. The page you are on will be in bold text and you can move to any other page by clicking on the relevant page title. The bottom of each page has 'next' and 'previous' links, as appropriate, to take you through the tutorial page by page.

hpr0772 :: Circuit Bending

Released on 2011-07-18 under a CC-BY-SA license.

I realize that what I have done is not truly circuit bending, but I felt that it was interesting and

was the closest related topic to my hacking.

Tools I have used:

Precission Screw drivers: flat,philips, torx, triwing, and allen

knife or wire cutter

soldering iron

electrical tape

package of various resitors

varialbe resistors ( potentiometers)


super glue

Here are some links that may be useful for this type of hacking.
