    Stickers For Your Plugs Kickstarter

    Yeah neat idea but I mean... people already do this. You can just get a template and have any of the thousands of vinyl decal companies print them for you and cut them out... easier and you can customize what you want. Kudos to him but I think it'll be a tough sell.

    Best software for IP cameras?

    BlueIris, what??? yeah no... sorry guys, but this is my field of expertise... let me get this right, you have IP cameras and want software for recording the feeds right? SentryVMS (aka Video Insight) - www.ipvideocorp.com Milestone Those are what I sell. SentryVMS will run you around...

    Cheating In The Classroom With Apple Watch

    Man I used to cheat on English tests back in 1997 or so with my watch. Anybody remember that Timex Datalink watch, which flashed barcodes on the screen in order to get programmed (and later had issues with LCD screens hit the market that the barcodes no longer worked for a while). Those were the...

    Having IP cameras on my main switch slow everything down?

    That switch only outputs 8.3w per PoE port... you'll want to verify the IP cameras you use do not use more then 8.3w or you'll have issues. You should always assume 15.4w per PoE port for any PoE switch you buy, this way you're covered for almost any kind of PoE device you need in the future...

    Having IP cameras on my main switch slow everything down?

    You should be fine with 8 IP cameras. I do this for a living. Make sure you just set your system for H.264 - most will do MJPEG as a default and that will kill your bandwidth. Remember most cameras you use will only have a 10/100 port on them and even some, 10Mbps. Cameras don't use a LOT of...

    Show Your LCD(s) setups!!!

    Just put the speakers on their side, easy fix. But I also am not a fan of eyefinity (or in my case Nvidia Surround). For the one game I play (iRacing, well more of a sim) it's fine, but within regular windows, no use. I don't need 1 LARGE WIDE monitor, I prefer 3 monitors to put things on...

    Show Your LCD(s) setups!!!

    Yes it is. It allows me to see various info, like speed and lap times, which is important for me.

    Show Your LCD(s) setups!!!

    Here is my recent setup. 3 23" LED monitors (Nvidia Surround, I got into iRacing) plus my (i want to say) 39" LED TV (I just moved this from another wall to right above my monitors). So it acts as a 4th monitor (good for putting my twitch feed/chat when I stream iRacing)

    Network pics thread

    I don't get why people install the wire managers wrong. You should never have to pass ONE switch to get to ANOTHER switch when using a wire manager. You should be able to go from patch panel, into wire manager, into the switch, no overlapping something else. Also people who use cables way too...

    Put USB Ports On Your Wall Without Wiring

    Great idea any good electrician knows to TAPE the screw terminals on an outlet to prevent someone from accidently touching the terminals if they ever remove their plate... so this would not work in that case. And the electrical outlet will have to be installed the right way, meaning it's not...

    What all do you run for software / servers at home?

    Unlike most here, I have a server for what I need and not to just say "yeah i got one of those" I have a single Windows Home Server (i think 2011?) that acts as a file server. It's where all my movies/tv shows are stored as well as anything else I need. It's a RAID5 system with I believe 8 2TB...
