Reasons I got involved in Computer Science and Informatics

  • From a young age, I found it very interesting
  • I have a good friend that supported me all the way
  • It is fun and challenging!
  • There are so many different topics, once you get bored of one you can skip to the next
  • There are new topics and challenges almost every day
  • It is something that you can teach yourself (especially nowadays that there is so much free material online)

Login to ‘CytaVoda WiFi’ with no password using your SIM card

Using Android devices that carry Cytamobile-Vodafone SIM cards with active RED and BLACK plans, you can connect to the CytaVoda WiFi using SIM authentication instead of using a password.

To do so

  • from the Wi-Fi manager of your cell phone click to connect on the CytaVoda WiFi network
  • at the new window click on the drop-down named EAP method
  • and select the option SIM
  • finally click on the Connect button.

The system will validate you and no further steps needed.

You will notice that your Wi-Fi manager will show a slightly different window than the usual when you click to connect on the network. This is normal as the network offers multiple authentication methods and it is giving you the option to choose which one to use. Of course, we do not know the password and the purpose of this post is to demonstrate the SIM authentication method.

The CytaVoda WiFi has a drawback, it does not offer unlimited data to the users.
Depending on what your SIM plan is, you will have a different monthly data allowance which is renewed every 1st of the month.

The data allowance limits that were applied at the time this post was written, were the following:

  • 200MB for: RED 1
  • 500MB for: RED 2
  • 1GB (1024MB) for: RED 3
  • 2GB (2048MB) for: RED 4 / RED Family / RED Plus / BLACK

You can check the amount of CytaVoda WiFi data that you consumed and the remaining data at the page http://miu.cyta.com.cy.

Logarithm is the inverse operation to exponentiation

In mathematics, the logarithm is the inverse operation to exponentiation, just as division is the inverse of multiplication and vice versa. That means the logarithm of a number is the exponent to which another fixed number, the base, must be raised to produce that number. In the most simple case the logarithm counts repeated multiplication of the same factor; e.g., since 1000 = 10 × 10 × 10 = 103, the “logarithm to base 10” of 1000 is 3. More generally, exponentiation allows any positive real number to be raised to any real power, always producing a positive result, so the logarithm can be calculated for any two positive real numbers b and x where b is not equal to 1. The logarithm of x to base b, denoted logb (x) (or logb x when no confusion is possible), is the unique real number y such that by = x. For example, log2 64 = 6, as 64 = 26.

From: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Logarithm

Another example: When N = ax then x is equal to loga (N) (or loga N).
