make -j3This tells make to run multiple jobs. Change the number to one less than the number of cores your system has.
make -j3I have not tried multi job in this thread on all makes so be aware it could be problematic.
In 2007 a problem in wpa2 was found that makes hacking a wifi device possible if within range of the wifi signal.
Be aware of what you are doing with your esp, and this new vunerability.
The Esp code that parallax uses is from esp_open_sdk, and it gets updates but I do not know how it relates to this problem.
If the esp_open_sdk uses the esspressif version 2.0 then it is vunerable.
The latest available from esspressif is 3.0 but if esp_open_sdk dosen't integrate it, then ParallaxEsp code dosen't.

Files involved in the instructions to follow show up on virus/malware scanners either because;
1. they are.
2. they are files that have methods malware uses to do the deed.
Please review the following possible threats to the data that you will be downloading in this instruction, if you follow all of it.
Know what you are downloading before you do.
However I hope they are false hits because one of them is inside the simpleide package, which came from the compile of it, from remotely downloaded PARALLAX file located here:https://github.com/parallaxinc/propsideworkspace/ Workspace the offending file is a .js file and its location on the git is shown in the image. Its located here: If you click the link github will show you the file in their editor. https://github.com/parallaxinc/Simple-Libraries/blob/master/Learn/Simple Libraries/Display/liboledc/html If you find and click on the jquery.js file you can inspect it and read it to see if it contains something. I do not know what is making the file offend a scanner, but I also don't see why the file is needed. Actually all the files triggered by virus scanners are usually not even needed. But some ARE like the mingw and other true compilers. But no one NEEDS jquery.js, its a fancy addon, probably for searching html documentation, and even then no not need, make them use CTRL-F The other files came from similar sources downloaded. I may go thru the build make files to find these sources and point them out here to make verification and integration more trusty.
If you choose to partake in the web of wide, know that it is truly wide, international. To be smart, a smart person has two things that many other people do not. Two wireless routers. One is on the internet and one is not. ALL devices that you own SHOULD be on the one without internet. And anything that stays connected to the internet should be turned off when not in use. If it must be on the internet all the time, then this is why you have two, for those devices. Unless you are a tube junkie, you don't need connection all times, but most do this....... why. Ideally you get devices that can use the no-internet wifi. WE must force this upon makers to make all LOCAL based devices... IOT-local. They don't want that. But it must be so. This means your tv will buffer the data upon request, and then jack out. So make your devices all work on a wifi that has NO INTERNET!!! Its the safest next to a wired lan with no net.
