The Pirate Bay might move servers to the sky to avoid the authorities

Trouble hosting proprietary information? Try to relocate up in a no man's land.

Arduino Tool That Connects Each Board to Its Own Source

If you create something with Arduino and put it out into the world, there is no well-established link to the source. If you personally made the device, the source can get lost over time. If you didn’t create it, you could have a tough time tracking the source down. You have the physical device, why can’t it tell you where it’s code lives?
