imgfs. Dealing with those annoying image file names on Google+

Had you ever got feed up with all those images on Google+ with the same file name?. Maybe this is not an issue for you or maybe there are simpler solutions, but for me it had become pretty annoying the fact that most of the pictures in the Google+ post have the same name so I have always to rename the file before saving it.

Four Unorthodox Ways to Transfer Files

Transferring files between computers has become a trivial task. Web, FTPs or SSH servers are common in nowadays computers. However, sometimes those standard services are not right there and you need to fallback to more basic transfer solutions which, anyway, are a lot cooler than an FTP or SSH server.

Let's introduce 4 unorthodox (and cool) ways to transfer files in case you are in a emergency. I had used all of them in some special situations, so I will give some examples on situations where they had been useful for me.

RFID header

Recently I came through the need to access data in some equipment using some fancy mobile device. Normally, a laptop would be connected to the equipment using a serial cable and data extracted through the file dumping capabilities of Hyperterminal. This is a pretty standard situations to retrieve data from some equipment as, even nowadays, serial ports are pretty common on certain domains.
