    Spite Trampoline Removal Project

    I don't see how it could, unless he really is a closet pedophile... People here of all people should know that there is absolutely no expectation of privacy outdoors. There is also absolutely no legal basis to force someone to stop photographing or recording anything in public from their own...

    Spite Trampoline Removal Project

    When the kids are out there, go out with your phone/video camera and act like you are recording them. Lick your lips and hold your crotch while doing it. Bet they start keeping the kids inside at all times. They might even move to get away from you.

    Time to choose my poe switch...

    True. And unless your home internet speed is 100Mbps or higher, or you transfer files between computers, you wont need gigabit. However, you say your rather "buy new".. rather than spend a hundred bucks on a used one.. Keep in mind those used switches cost a couple thousand dollars when they...

    Time to choose my poe switch...

    Watchguard. Yes, it is running pfSense. And yes, those are for the VLANs. I could have put them all on one port but it was just easier for me to structure it that way. Exactly. Look how many ports are populated for my 2BR apartment... :D I haven't gotten around to it yet but the fans in...

    Time to choose my poe switch...

    Mine has been in use for 3 years now, no problems. Before that I had a 3Com 24 port PoE managed switch in use for 6 years. I had also bought it used on eBay for about $30. Only changed because I needed more than the two gigabit ports. This Nortel is all gigabit.

    My recommendation is aways to look on eBay for used enterprise pulls. They are workhorses and will still have plenty of life left in them, although you will probably want to replace the fans. They are managed, so you can do VLANs to keep your traffic separated, and have PoE available on all...

    Security drone

    Actually your state has no say in it. The FAA considers drones to be aircraft, and it is illegal under federal law to do anything to cause damage to someone else's drone. We're talking fines into the hundreds of thousands of dollars and up to 20 years in federal PMITA prison. If you use a...

    Friend of mine is a K9 handler. He calls his partner a Belgian Landshark.. I've always known them as Maligators.. :D

    Ethernet Ends

    It's not really abuse. It's only being flexed a couple times during knotting, and technically the knots are of acceptable radius, but the real issue would be the pairs are split wrong. Orange is way longer than green, and brown is way longer than blue. Had brown and blue been used for the...

    Ethernet Ends

    That... is actually really f'n cool! I would be very interested to know what a cable certifier would say about it.

    My guess is that it wasn't his image, just one that he found posted somewhere else. Imgur links don't go dead unless the file was actually deleted by the user.

    Installation license

    You are never required to have a license to install your own cameras. Every state that requires licensing has an exemption for self installation of your own system. If the store tells you otherwise, you can cite 19 NYCRR §195.2 (c): A license is not required for the installation, maintenance or...

    Anyone know how to repair a UPS?

    With most equipment nowadays having worldwide power supplies that can work just fine anywhere from 90-264V (100-240 +/- 10% which is the standard tolerance), voltage regulation is far less important today than it was years ago. Power supplies are also far more tolerant of dirty power than they...

    The Raspberry PI thread - What do you do with yours?

    ^^^ This!!! And then the next level of that is "why did it take me so long to VPN my cell phone through it?" because it knocks out in-app ads as well!
