    The US Monetary system.

    Was not sure where to post this, as it wasn't inherently political, nor inherently a "leftist" liberal thing.... I found it interesting that YouTube full-on DELETED this account related to crypto currency. I have nothing invested in an bitcoin or any other "coin", or any company directly...

    Weather radar about an hour ago... Check out the clouds at different levels going in the opposite direction of each other... a little over 90 minutes in 23 seconds. (256 speed). I may try 128 speed for a 1 hour slice of this.

    OTA TV Stuff...

    Somebody had a cool thread going on this yesterday, but it is gone now for some reason. I have been without cable TV since 2017, using an antenna and signal amplifier to feed 4 tv's in the house. Of course, we also stream a lot of stuff via Prime and Netflix. Several of you mentioned some of...

    Windows 11...

    The older I get, the less I like change. Then Microsoft has to F with everything to "improve" it. Improve? My ass. Has anyone ever heard of the "Hawthorne effect"? In searching for the optimal conditions for factory work, researchers discovered that morale improved and workers had a more...

    Grrrrr.... No ONVIF Triggers are being received or processed by BI for my newest cam... IPC-T5442T-ZE installed a few weeks ago. IVS is set up for cam for smart (human) detection, as well as motion (I like seeing deer and random animals) --set to be very sensitive to generate a lot of alerts...

    snow timelapse.

    nothing really awesome happens here....LOL. just kind of cool to watch a drift form and move across my driveway. The "stuttering" nature of it is really just gusts of wind that grab snow and then subside and drop the snow in place. driveway by morning... Very glad we didn't get the 6 to 12...

    Infra Red weirdness.....

    OK-- I have a few indoor cams in my basement home-theater room. We were watching a movie last night, and my wife was playing a game on her phone while the movie was running. I was skipping through my alerts, and there were a ton of them the whole time we were watching the movie. The WEIRD...

    How I got the mailman to hate me 25 years ago....

    LOL.... I found this buried in the back of a cabinet today.... Who else had a subscription to the biggest "magazine" ever coming to you every month? This just cracked me up--- a 200 Mhz Pentium Pro for $3,500!!

    What the H*** is this??

    OK.... this is on a Dahua 2mp varifocal turret. I have NOT (obviously) spent time to dial it in for good night video-- so--- CRAPPY video alert (and yes-- I feel the shame). The neighbors backyard light was on as they let their dogs out. Something (???) goes scampering - hopping by--- does...

    How LONG has your BI machine been running?

    I decided to change the daily re-boot time of my BI machine, and I realized that I have been using this one a LONG time. With the exception of some very occasional downtime to add a new drive or something like that, My BI machine has been in continuous use since July of 2015... It's a 4th Gen...

    What am I doing wrong here?

    We had some cool low clouds going last night, so I turned my PTZ to get some video for a timelapse.... I am in the console instead of the web interface since the web ui is limited to one bvr file to export a clip from. In the console, the "convert / export" feature is greyed out....

    New Build.... LGA 1700 Cooling anyone??

    This is NOT for BI--- my own computer is an I-5 SECOND generation I built in 2011. LOL--- 10 years old. Way overdue for a new one. So... I am doing a 12th gen I-5 on the new build. I am having a helluva time with finding CPU COOLING for that LGA1700 socket! I really didn't think it would...

    Smoky Sunset Timelapse.

    I zoomed in my PTZ (SD49225XA-HNR ) and did a little timelapse. When you zoom in, you can watch the Sun move across the sky in real time, but sped up it's kind of neat.

    Rebranded Dahua...

    My brother is looking at these... I saw they were re-branded Dahua and wondering what model this one might be. this is an 8mp on a 1/1.8 sensor.... I warned him about the importance of sensor size. This cam is only $110.... anybody have one...

    The CRT thread....

    Maybe it doesn't need a thread all it's own, or maybe it does. I have been in a few discussions about this topic, and most often, the proponents say that CRT does NOT state that being white is "bad". Interesting, since there are philosophical underpinnings that span across CRT and the current...

    "Road to Kirwin" -- Viofo 129 Duo sample (and question)

    I have had this installed for about 6 months now. The sticky "forever" tape released on the back window of my truck -- so no rear cam to show you right now. This is the road to Kirwin Wyoming, an abandoned mining town in the mountains. The video starts at about 8,200 feet in elevation, with...

    My ~$50 Amcrest (flashed with Dahua firmware) died last night during a thunderstorm. Tried turning POE off/on from HP switch management. It connected once last night drawing about 3 watts-- a little low, then within 30 seconds it went down to 0.9 watts (not normal) and never initiated the...
