    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.

    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...

    FS: Wheel Stand Pro for Logitech G27 Wheel

    So I'm selling my Wheel Stand Pro for my Logitech G27 setup. I sold the Logitech G27 wheel/accessories so now I have the Wheel Stand Pro. It's 2 months old and you get all of the components (naturally) with it. This costs about $185 on amazon (after shipping). I'm looking to sell it for...

    FS: Logitech G27 Racing Wheel & Wheel Stand Pro

    So I bought a Logitech G27 wheel and a Wheel Stand Pro a few months ago. Got into iRacing but I have not had the time to race. So I'm selling my stuff. I've only used it for maybe a dozen races, so not long at all. Everything looks brand new. I'm hoping to sell this stuff locally as...

    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...

    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...

    Wall Mount Monitor WITH PC Attachment

    So I've seen the NanoPC's with the VESA mount so you can mount it behind a monitor. But what about wall-mounting the monitor AND the NanoPC? For my office I need to mount about a 19" LCD on the wall with a small computer behind it as well... so any thoughts. Does someone sell something right now?

    Network outlets

    Umm you COULD do what you are suggesting... basically you plan to have a 6 port wall switch at the router location, and those 6 wires will go to various devices throughout your apartment? They'll then plug into the switch using 6 of the 8 ports. The other way is to have those 6 cables come...

    Plug in range extenders, do they exist?

    I'm sorry but am I the only one who is thinking this? You've been on this site for over 14 years and you've never heard of an access point? I'm not trying to be an ass, but seriously? I can understand the confusion on getting network upstairs/etc... as not everybody is a network guy... but never...

    SlingTV - more programming for cord cutters

    I'll only get this if I can install a "plugin" for windows media center... as I don't want to have an external device... all my movies/tv/etc... is done from my media center interface. So if SlingTV has a plugin for that, i'm golden. I'm not interested in buying a roku or some other device... I...

    Extended & Mirrored Displays at Same Time? 2 Monitors + 1 TV

    I think your best bet would just be to install a physical HDMI/DVI/VGA splitter. Output 1 from PC goes to Monitor #1, Output 2 from PC goes to the splitter, which then goes to Monitor #2 and TV #1. This way anything on Monitor 2 is also showed on the TV. Not sure if your software alone can do...

    Benefits in having a dedicated HTPC vs chromebox/roku etc

    Not sure if anybody mentioned this, but with a HTPC you can buy a Tuner (like the Ceton tuner line) and get rid of your cable box (just rent the cable card for $2 a month). The interface is much QUICKER than any "cable box" interface i've ever seen. And you can record up to XYZ shows at once...

    Best Off-Site Backup Service

    How's CloudBerry? So far i'm liking the interface and the pricing. They set me up as a reseller so i have my own interface to manage my clients. I can do local backups also... can't run my own server but it's good so far for cloud backups. I'll look into crashplan as an alternative for other...

    Patch panel termination on home network

    I'm late to the party. 1) They actually did a SEMI neat job... meaning they wires are in nice bundles behind the patch panel... HOWEVER they should have left a service loop... the cables come straight down on the right into the back... no room to really move it around 2) As noted, thats not...

    How is it working for AT@T or other Internet providers

    The [H] Post Pictures of your ManCave
