Hey guys, if you’re a network IT (Information Technology) engineer or cybersecurity professional for sure you’d know about the tool nmap .

Then on your phone’s Bluetooth settings delete the pairing connec

Four hours passed after cleaning, a Shopee (an e-commerce site that is popular on Southeast Asia) delivery guy arrived to deliver a package that I’ve ordered last week. You know what is interesting in that event is when I asked the price, the delivery guy said its 215 pesos.
