I recently had to replace the inner tie rod on my wife’s 2005 Escape.  After doing a little research for an inner tie rod tool I found one that had very good reviews and was suppose to work with MOST Ford vehicles.  I guess the 05 Escape doesn’t fall into most.  The crowsfeet on the tool are made to fit on an inner tie rod that has two flat sides, the tie rod in the Escape was completely round and smooth.

I came across a handy little application called DiffMerge that allows you to compare multiple files and make changes while open.  This is extremely useful when comparing multiple MikroTik configuration files.  Previously I used sdiff, but I think this is much easier to use.

DiffMerge

 

 

DiffMerge is a free application and can be used on OSX, Windows, and Linux.  The download can be found here.

Sometimes working with a directory full of subdirectories and files you need to compare the directories and files to another version of the files.  This comes in extremely useful when restoring a hacked website.  To do this you need to have the old copy and the current copy in two different directories on your system.  Then run the command below replacing DIR1 and DIR2 with the directoires you would like to compare.  This works through the entire directory because of the -r option which stand for recursive.  The -q option suppresses the entire output and only outputs the files the differ.

After setting up your website it is always a good idea to change the directory and file permissions.  This makes it a little harder for an attacker to compromise your site.  For Joomla and Wordpress it is best practice to set your directory permissions to 755 and your file permissions to 644.  In addition to this, Wordpress recommends setting the wp-config.php file to 600.

 

Using the code below, go to the root directory of your website and run the following commands.

 

find . -type f -exec chmod 644 {} \;
find . -type d -exec chmod 755 {} \;

 

 

This is my first setup with 3G on a Routerboard.  It took a little longer than I wanted to figure everything out, but I eventually got it working.

 

The steps that made it work.

  1. Place the UMTS drivers in the /firmware directory on the Routerboard (You should be able to get them from whom you purchased the card.)
  2. Install the Gobi 2000 and power on the router.
  3. Shutdown the router and install the SIM card
  4. Add the ppp-client with the settings below. Continue reading
