    US Presidential Election 2020 (& Politics) :)

    Bleach or disinfectant, it makes little difference. Whichever you inject it's likely to be fatal. As for brainstorming session, sorry but Trump made the USA the laughing stock of the world. Only someone with the mind of a goldfish would think you could inject disinfectant or a disfectant style...

    With 25x zoom, at least they guaranteed to see something. I'm in. How much for subscription? :lol:

    US Presidential Election 2020 (& Politics) :)

    What that the UK shut down to protect it's citizens from infection and the US kept open to protect it's profits but let it's citizens die? Great Government! As I pointed out above, one that cares only about profits for the wealthy and sees people as expendable. Maybe you should be questioning...

    US Presidential Election 2020 (& Politics) :)

    As a fellow European, I agree. Many Americans have been taught to believe Socialism even in it's mild form is an evil equivalent to communism when they have a system, totally based on greed, where everyone just cares about number 1 and f*ck everyone else. A minority of the population are filthy...

    US Presidential Election 2020 (& Politics) :)

    Because of COVID. They've all but shut the Hospitals down to most routine operations to protect people and stop the spread of COVID. Trump pretty much just ignored it and let 25 Million Americans become infected and let 500,000 die. Probably many more given many cases go reported as other...

    US Presidential Election 2020 (& Politics) :)

    Pretty much identical sales tax aside and I know that varies state to state. On a £100K, running your income through a tax calulator you'd pay 30% overall taking into account the different bands and married person allowance. Currently you pay 23% + 6.2% Social Security = 29.2%. So for an extra...

    US Presidential Election 2020 (& Politics) :)

    You are mistaken. Most pay less income tax. We pay fixed rates that include everything including social security: Band Taxable income Tax rate Personal Allowance Up to £12,500 0% Basic rate £12,501 to £50,000 20% Higher rate £50,001 to £150,000 40% Additional rate over £150,000 45%...

    US Presidential Election 2020 (& Politics) :)

    In line with the civil discussion bit at the beginning of this thread, I have to say I think you a lot of the US have it wrong about Socialism. Socilaism doesn't equal communism and there's a reason why socialists get elected in the EU countries so often. For a start, take a look at Britains...

    Worst install ever

    The only thing missing from that pig tail is the pig that wired it. :) Apart from the junction box issue and the protective trunking for the cabling, for the love of god, hasn't this guy ever heard of cable clips? I take it you weren't tempted to unplug the cameras then?

    Hikvision ColorVu + 4K (DS-2CD2087G2-L)

    Worth remembering that price isn't everything. Andy is easily contactable through the forums and offers proven great service. Although others may or may not offer cheaper, many are unknown when it comes to customer service and the real time you find out how good a vendor is, is often only after...

    Hikvision ColorVu + 4K (DS-2CD2087G2-L)

    It sounds like Dahua got caught on this one concentrating on smaller sensors whilst Hik went the way the market wants, larger. Shame Dahua are behind but will be great to see their offering when available. Even more so if it comes as a varifocal turret. As for pricing, some users above are...

    So I roughly have installed a 5442 6mm birdhouse camera on lamp post 50' from my front door....with tire slashing incursion discussion

    I would still say it's circumstancial unless you have footage of her actually causing damage. As said previously, it may be an excuse to question her informally, but if denied, they're going to have difficulty proving anything. The head popping up might help but in the UK at least, if the video...

    Overview / Testing Video of the New Hikvision ColorVu G2 with Acusense Hikvision DS-2CD2347G2-LU

    At that price it explains everything! The stupid aspect is, considering the Colourvu uses a single 1/1.2" sensor and costs $170, it's difficult to see how they justify the cost of $1500+ for essentially the same camera with an extra sensor module added. I'm guessing a 2nd sensor adds between...

    I'd be surprised if they can do anything from that video, although the US seems less stringent on proof than the UK. All the video shows is a girl walking past. She's not committing a crime by doing that. Even if the clothing is the same it can be considered co-incidental as it was not on the...

    Overview / Testing Video of the New Hikvision ColorVu G2 with Acusense Hikvision DS-2CD2347G2-LU

    Just been looking at Hikvisions Web Site. It seems Darkfighter X is using 2 x 1/1.2" sensors to see at night, one in ir and the other in colour: https://oversea-download.hikvision.com/uploadfile/Leaflet/Brochure/3-Product Brochure/DarkfighterX.pdf Looks impressive although would be preferable...

    Overview / Testing Video of the New Hikvision ColorVu G2 with Acusense Hikvision DS-2CD2347G2-LU

    Yes I read the low illumination part and presumed it was dusk. If it's totally black, then that's an impressive performance albeit 1/30 isn't realistic as shown and a higher shutter would result in a darker image and more noise. That said, very few people try and use cameras without at least...

    Overview / Testing Video of the New Hikvision ColorVu G2 with Acusense Hikvision DS-2CD2347G2-LU

    TBH, this video is exactly why I wouldn't be running out and ordering one... In my opinion, it shows the light performance isn't that good despite the sensor size and I believe therefore a lot of the performance claimed in the specs could be down to the addition of the 2 led lights. Just...

    Title fixed by fenderman. I mistakenly though I was hacked. Turns out, I didnt read the help file.

    If someone did get in it shouldn't amaze you. There are security tools out there that lets someone find every single unsecured device on the internet at a click in seconds It's just then a matter of choosing what you want to hack. At a hackers conference not so long ago, as a demo the lecturer...

    Title fixed by fenderman. I mistakenly though I was hacked. Turns out, I didnt read the help file.

    Unless I'm very mistaken you cannot hack a Virtual Machine. It's completely isolated from the rest of your PC and network and the system files are software simulated and so can't be deleted or altered as they exist in the memory only - hence why VM's are used for live virus testing - because it...

    Police chase in my neighborhood

    Hardly surprising. Surprised they didn't pit him on your empty street and were so far back. He was trying to out run the police in a Fiat Doblo Van? The range has engines from 75-119bhp with most in the lower range. More chance of him escaping on foot when matched against a large engined tuned...

    Nest Camera Captures Murder

    If you go through the video slowly and pauise it, you can see she has time to reach the front door of the house before he even makes it onto the drive from the sidewalk. There were 3 cars she could have taken a defensive position behind - the 1 she got out of, the saloon to the right and the one...

    Memory creeping on Intel Graphics 530

    Nothing is faster than dism that I've found. Trust me and ask Looney. Once you have Windows on the traditional way, which takes multiple reboots and usually about 1/2 an hour you then need to start installing drivers and adding back your apps etc. In my experience that usually takes days. Try...

    If you want to go wood for appearane but want sturdy get 100mm (4 inch) square posts and spec them so 1/3rd of the post goes below ground ie. for a 6ft post, you'd buy a 9ft post and bury 3ft under l;aid on 2 inches of gravel then post crete. I'd personally use pressure treated wood, there are...

    Nest Camera Captures Murder

    It's a cold blooded murder not a spur of the moment loss of control, The guy's driven deliberately to her house to shoot her. I'd hazard a guess there's either some element of infedilitly or suspected infedelity from someone who's paranoid, or there's some kind of break up going on. Just guesses...

    Memory creeping on Intel Graphics 530

    I'm going to hazard a guess that if you ran it without updates paused you'd probably get a later version. Question is do you want untested updates by running it unpaused? I'm guessing not if you have them paused. If PC is still offline, doesn't sound like a Win issue. You could try running dism...
