Check this out, I have been putting an enterprise grade router thru its paces making sure it is working well before I install it for a client. It has advanced filtering, intrusion detection, ad blocking, etc and it is showing some wild stats for what it is blocking. This thing has been online for 4 days and any of the following domains in the picture that has metrics, settings, analytics, telemetry, etc in it is pretty much showing a device reporting home to whoever made it.

I have my Windows 10 computers locked down a lot more than most and they have still tried to call home to Microsoft several hundred times a day. Now what got my attention is a Kindle Fire 10" tablet on my network. It is having a stroke because it can't complete its call home to Amazon which it has tried some 16,446 times over the last 4 days....yeah that averages out to roughly 4,111 times per day or 171 times per hour. The Kindle does not have show mode on, was bought without the ad package, and it is not being used, its just sitting on my desk plugged into a charger because it can't sleep without completing a call to Amazon.

A device calling home once a day or once an hour is ok if they have to do it at all but this much????....no way.

WALLY MENTO'S WHEEL

1976 Popular Science Article posted by Bill Beaty
Minto estimates a slightly larger (40 ft.) wheel with 14 pairs of 1 ft. by 4.5 ft. containers would provide 10,240 ft/lb of work per container as each 269 lb of liquid responds to gravity through a 20 ft level arm. At only one rpm this is 8.69 hp; not spectacular, but low cost and capable of running steadily for generations. The slow rotational speed can be stepped up to whatever is needed, just as with the old-time waterwheels.

What could YOU do with 8.69 HP running 24/7/365 that only requires a little bit of heat to work and nearly no maintenance required?
