    Pandemic threat? Anyone else concerned?

    Hi Tigerwillow1, believe it or not I agree with a lot of this. For sure the crisis has been politicized... when has a crisis in this country not been? I remember congress on the steps on 9/11/2001 standing together... that lasted less than a week. I'll spare you my "TDS rant" as I've done that...

    Pandemic threat? Anyone else concerned?

    Once again, most of the virus that is expelled through mouth and nose is attached to water droplets and much of that is caught by simple cloth masks which reduce the spread of the virus. They aren't perfect but they work surprisingly well. See verifiable data in sources of the CDC article I...

    Read the article. Most of those deaths SHOULD be classified as COVID deaths. Sent from my ONEPLUS A6013 using Tapatalk

    Pandemic threat? Anyone else concerned?

    Asymptomatic folks are a very small percentage of overall tests (last I heard under 5%, captured during routine screens). Many of these are actually presymptomatic (meaning they develop symptoms later). But most people getting tested do so because they feel sick. Specific exceptions for those in...

    Pandemic threat? Anyone else concerned?

    COVID-19 Is even more infectious than the flu, by several fold, and due to the long potential incubation period before symptoms (up to ~two weeks versus just a few days for flu), it's relatively easy for people to think they aren't sick when they are infectious and spreading it. Studies show a...

    Pandemic threat? Anyone else concerned?

    No, unless there is a positive COVID-19 test, it's not a COVID-19 case, with rare exceptions. Most of the non-positive-test cases on the books were from early in the pandemic before the tests were widely available, and frankly many of the doctors didn't bother with it because the cases were both...

    Pandemic threat? Anyone else concerned?

    The problem stems from two big issues: Many states, due to ignorance, put into place confusing and sometimes nonsensical rules for deciding what a case or a COVID-19 death was. Mostly this only affected fringe cases, but it fuels a fire of disbelief in the numbers as a whole. The other problem...

    Pandemic threat? Anyone else concerned?

    Nice. Two super conservative hit pieces and an April-vintage WaPo article from before the impact of cloth masks on stemming transmission from asymptomatic/pre-symptomatic spreaders was understood. What drives me nuts is that there are objective facts to be be seen, tested and verified... and...

    Pandemic threat? Anyone else concerned?

    @bigredfish, just read the analysis. I've read the original at archive.org and the AIER review. Both are critically flawed. For example: "“These data analyses suggest that in contrast to most people’s assumptions, the number of deaths by COVID-19 is not alarming. In fact, it has relatively...

    You cite an obviously flawed analysis that JHU has pulled... Why? Sent from my ONEPLUS A6013 using Tapatalk

    You really shouldn't try to commit burglaries in your own car

    Thanks for this detail. So, about 8 msec exposure, comparable to what I use. That 2MP 1/2.8" Starlight sensor rocks. My neighborhood is much darker, and several of my cameras are higher res affairs more optimized to daytime. I don't come close to that clarity even with a heap of supplemental IR...

    You really shouldn't try to commit burglaries in your own car

    What type of camera is the PTZ around ~1:39? I'm blown away by the clarity and lack of grain/motion blur. Maybe your neighborhood has lots more light than mine, or maybe I'm doing something wrong.

    Dahua Camera Captures Jupiter And It's Moons

    That totally rocks. I've been thinking about getting a PTZ aimed "up"... this was inspirational...

    Hardware Dedicated Blueiris PC? is it a Good Deal ?

    I was about to suggest getting a <$300 eBay PC (I have one that was $250 2 years ago), but 28 or 30 cameras is out of my league. Cost of PC irrelevant compared to cameras. I don't think the i7-9700 is a laptop CPU... usually those end in -U or -T, and are power saving variants...

    Lazy & careless Amazon driver TWO days in a row

    In Maryland where I grew up, a wanna-be cat burglar tried to break into an art museum. The intent was to open one of the skylights and come down on a rope. Least competent criminal apparently encountered some problem while opening the skylight, fell through it, and was seriously injured in the...
