    I applaude GreatScottLab for taking the trouble to contribute.However I sympathise with BuffS1's comments.Instructables may be about teaching,but sometimes the best advice is to buy off the shelf.It could have been made clearer,that you would only build your own supply,for the challenge.My experiece, as a long term tinkerer,makes me think building such a device on stripboard could be very frustrating.The article assumes the supply will work perfectly, first time. I'd assume that it won't.As for building from your own junk box,you need experience to have all the partsand know which bits you can substitute.I don't think that is the target audience.

  • Control ESP8266 over the internet (from anywhere)

    Not "absolutely wrong."The I.P returned from whatsmyip.com shows your router's I.P not your provider's servers' IP.However, this value can change daily or hourly for many users.Under those circumstances, connecting from the outside is not possible without extra software to somehow publish the current I.P
