Security

+ - Residential intrusion detection

Submitted by GodfatherofSoul
GodfatherofSoul (174979) writes "For the past 5 years that I've been in my house, I've noticed what I would call nuisance attempts to either peer into or enter my home. Before I secured my window wells and trimmed back some shrubs, I'd noticed on many occasions the covers would be completely removed *windows remain secure). Before I installed a motion sensor light, I'd find my backyard gates unlatched.

The last "hole" is my garage door opener. Very frequently when I've left the house for extended periods (over 24 hours), I'll come home to find the remote key pad with the cover open as if it were used. I've rigged the garage door before and I don't think anyone has ever entered through it, but I don't doubt someone has been plugging in random numbers trying to get in.

I'm in a good neighborhood with nosey neighbors, so I don't expect more than "industrious" teenagers at work. But, I would like to surreptitiously see who's doing it without them seeing me. I'm on a typical residential street, so I don't have options like a wildlife camera. Again, I'm not interested in installing some whole-house security camera system. What I want is a localized system that I can put in place to detect when someone is at the keypad using it and preferably record that content while I'm away. Any ideas, Slashdotters?"

+ - Stephen Hawkins->

GodfatherofSoul (174979) writes ""In making that announcement, Hawking recanted a position he had held for nearly 30 years. He also pulled the rug out from under a generation of science-fiction fans, declaring dead a favorite plot device. "There is no possibility of using black holes to travel to other universes," he said, with evident regret. And, finally, he conceded defeat in a long-standing bet with Caltech astrophysicist John Preskill, who thought there wasn't a problem in the first place.""

+ - Natalie Nudie Scene: our prayers are answered

Submitted by GodfatherofSoul
GodfatherofSoul (174979) writes "Looks like Natalie Portman has finally done a nudie scene, and it's free!

"You can watch it online for free or download on iTunes," Portman told FOX at the premiere of the new Wes Anderson film in which she is featured only in a 12-minute prologue entitled "Hotel Chevalier." "This is something I'm really, really proud of."


Just add hot grits :)"
