Restoring an encrypted Time Machine backup from Synology

I recently replaced my Macbook Pro (early 2015) with a newer model. As I make use of Time Machine for making encrypted backups on my Synology NAS I thought it would be a great opportunity to actually test my backups as a non tested backup is no backup at all (Schrodinger’s backup). During the initial setup of my new Macbook however, I ran into a problem. The migration assistant found my NAS, I was able to connect to it and see the backups but at the same time I got the following message: “No volumes found in backup”.

How to emulate/simulate Amiibo with a Proxmark 3 Easy

In this post I will explain how to use a Proxmark 3 Easy to emulate an Amiibo. About the Proxmark 3 Easy The Proxmark 3 Easy was designed and manufactured by Elechouse to be a lower cost alternative to the Proxmark RDV2 and therefor lacks some of the more advanced features. However, it is still capable of much of the same and is readily available from Chinese sellers for a decent price making it an interesting option to get yourself familiar with RFID. Please note that the Proxmark 3 Easy is now obsolete and superseded by the Proxmark 3 RDV… Read More »How to emulate/simulate Amiibo with a Proxmark 3 Easy

I was eager to try this out for myself so I got out my Pi 3 model B and got to work. For this project I used a Winbond 25X80 salvaged from a motherboard I had lying around. Outline of… Read More »How to flash bios chips with Raspberry Pi

In the beginning of this year I got a YubiKey NEO from a colleague. As I was already using LastPass to manage my passwords I wanted use my YubiKey as part of the two factor authentication process.
