We’re back with a number of updates about the world’s fastest link shortener once.to!

Even though it’s April 1st, I have some serious story for you today! It’s about what I’ve been up to for the last six months, which has been a pretty busy, interesting, and eye-opening time for me.

Thus eventually I’ve decided to go for a mesh Wi-Fi system.
