Random thought for the day ...

I just realized that it's been months since I've taken a tape backup of my home server, and even if I tried right now I wouldn't be able to fit everything anyway.

I guess it's finally time to retire my tape drive.

Best of all, it is Sony so everything will be proprietary $#!+.

You have any more information on that?  I have worked with digital signage, I find this interesting.

its about 4mm thick, has a magnetic stripe in the front which tells the card when its opened.

the computer then boots (takes about 5 seconds) and plays the video.

it has a mini-usb plug at the top, the screen you can see, plus half adozend buttons to switch between the videos, start/stop/volume.

its got most probably 256MB Flash, which you can see ~180 with the videos through a USB-Harddisk.

it can just play avis with some special codec...

This is my home server I'm talking about. Uncensored and other properties are hosted at a carrier class data center.

well, one could call this a 'video postcard'

its got a little screen to play the dell commercial on.

after it did that, its just disposal. so, the little screen, the processor, the ram, everything inside is just a one way product.

I'm sure the component costs are negligible; the magic is in the assembly costs; by using Chinese workers paid $0.03 a day instead of using expensive machines, you can get a lot done...

Please refer to IG's First Law of Everything for the explanation of why the USA has not gone metric yet.

I think I mentioned this somewhere else recently -- since food packagers always seem to be slyly reducing the size of their packages in order to avoid raising the price, they ought to take the opportunity to go metric.  An 8 ounce can of tuna now contains only 5 ounces (barely enough for one sandwich).  The next time they shrink the can they could go to 100 grams (3.527 ounces) and most people won't know what hit them until they need to buy two or three cans just to make lunch.

Does anyone have experiences with IP cameras, wireless or otherwise. Comments suggestions appreciated.

I suspect he's referring to the surveillance variety, rather than the webcam variety.

Unfortunately, zooer, I do not, though I'm hoping to get some practical experience, as some things have been happening in my neighborhood which have given me cause to start investigating such a system.

Yes I was talking about "security" type cameras not web skype type of cameras. From what I am reading, you have to spend a few bucks to get quality. There
are plenty of cheap cameras available, but the quality is lacking. I have fooled around with "motion" using web cameras, but wanted something better. I
could not get Zoneminder to work on my older machine but I didn't put too much effort into it.
I would like a decent outdoor IP camera, not necessarily for security but it could be used for that
