7 (4) Ways to Keep Packages From Being Stolen Off Your Porch [CNET]

Full article here.

1. Let Amazon Into Your Home

Between Alexa and this, Amazon is hellbent on trying to enter into your home and invade your living space.

Thankfully, Amazon Key is not available in all cities, and you must be a Prime member, so it's not a concern for me.



2. Get a Front Porch Camera

But make sure thieves can't see it. It's also helpful in seeing which FedEx delivery drivers don't wait for a signature on medicine you need to live that has a 1k$ copay.


3. Something Called a BoxLock

It's a barcode scanner that locks your mailbox and only opens when a package you are expecting arrives. That's neat, but a bit costly. How many packages do you expect to make it worth it?

4. Get it Delivered To Your Office

In the growing world of freelancers, Uber and Lyft Drivers, DoorDash, etc, your office might be all over the city.

For those who find employment in an office, sure you could do that, but you need to know what time packages and mail is delivered. Often, packages will be handed from UPS or Fedex to the local post office, and those times can vary wildly.

Wireless Diagnostics on Mac OS; Packet Sniffing on a WLAN

There's a post sitting in my drafts about Wireshark and how to sniff packets out of the air that was going to be about sniffing for authentication packets for Wi-Fi hotspots that aren't broadcasting SSID (Which you shouldn't do apparently! It's still not safe). I was watching this video to find a little more information about how to properly use Monitoring mode on my Macbook to sniff for WLAN packets on the network. So when he said "Just open up Wireless Diagnostics and sniff your network (check your width and channel)." It was shocking to me.
