Here is an interesting page showing how to use DslrDashboard (open source) with TP-Link Battery Powered Wireless router along with LR Timelapse to have a really powerful way to control your camera. Except for the LR Timelapse portion, the DSLR dashboard is open source and you're using Open WRT. The hardware on the battery router is pretty much identical to a commercial offering (whose name escapes me right now) that is charging $$$$$$ for this type of set up.

I've got the components, and hope to find a weekend free soon to hook it to my Canon 5D3 for some time-lapse and other controlled shooting. I figured it nothing else, this would breathe a bit more useful life back into my old Motorola Xoom tablet.

Yep, that's precisely what I was thinking...the iPad with the general public, has become a generic word for 'tablet'.

Kinda like Kleenex is pretty much any facial tissue you blow your nose on, Xerox is any copy machine, and in the south, Coke pretty much means any type of carbonated beverage (as in "hey, you want a coke or something?" "Yes", "Ok, what flavor?")

Coke-or-something being one word when asked...

But yes, I've heard before people asking, "what kind of iPad do you have there?"

We trapped cars on the road by tossing Molatov cocktails on the ahead of them blocking them with fire wall....and then one behind them.

Never dawned on a bunch of idiot kids how dangerous this was at the time....but oh well, no harm done.

Fortunately back in the day...that would not get your branded as a 'terrorist', just a bunch of stupid pre-teens.

Also, back in the day where if the cop pulled you over somewhat tipsy, and you were close to home, they'd let you go home with the warning of "If I see you out AGAIN tonight, you're going to jail."

Some things were better in the simpler times of yore. I remember when there was no security going to / from the gate of your airplane at all.

I've been dying to find out if surrounding my license plate on my car, would fsck up the video from the speeding/stoplight cameras too....easily viewable to naked human eye, but blind out the cameras.

Hmm...sound like a fun weekend project.

And for the Ferguson thing....let's take a wait and see attitude to see what the evidence presents as what really happened.

So far, the kid seems to possibly not be quite as innocent as originally depicted by the news and Al Sharpton types....

So, at this point, best to wait and see what the evidence and witnesses show as what happened that day.

am talking in this case about the sliced meat you eat on bread. In the local shop, only the super-expensive, high-garlic "Italian" meat is sugar-free. The rest contains both sugar AND at least one kind of syrup. The ingredient list is on the back side, so if you see, for example, roasted chicken meat, you would not think that it would contain anything else than roasted chicken. But if you turn over the package, you see what junk is used to produce it. Hey, but it is organic junk!

Well, that's what you get eating processedfoods, like deli meat.

If you roast your own chicken or cook your own roast beef from scratch, you know exactly what you're getting in it...hence, you quit (or at least greatly reduce) your intake of processed food.

That's a no brainer, eh?

1 pack of a whole chicken on the bone is 8 bucks

Wow..where do you live where chicken is so $$$$?

Quite often you see chicken going on sale here for $0.89/lb, regular price is only up to about $1.19/lb. You can get a chicken even at regular price for less than $5.

But it is cheap, whole foods you prepare and cook from scratch ARE cheaper and healthier, just takes a bit of time and effort.

We used to do meals as a family...even as a kid when I got home from school first, both parents working, Mom had notes for me to start things, sometimes as simple as throw veggies in a crock pot or something, more as I got older and advanced.

Everyone has 24 hours in a is up to you as to what to do with them and where to prioritize.

There's a difference between denying the diet of our evolutionary ancestors, and having a problem with the way animals are treated in modern farms. I'm surprised by how often I have to point this out.

It is pretty easy these days, to buy meat from local farms which treat the animals in more humane ways, yet still many of the vegan types say that isn't sufficient that NO animals should be sacrificed, even humanely, for human consumption.

Don't you have private prosecutions in the US? Sure, they cost money, but in cases like this there are usually plenty of interested parties willing to chip in.

No...never heard of such a thing??

Charges here are brought by the government against criminals.

In civil suits, it is private I guess, people suing each other, but not in criminal matters.

WTF is the Dept of Energy supposed to be investigating fucking climate change?!?!

The Energy Dept, should be only working on current and NEW forms of energy.

Of course funding should be cut for things that should not be part of their mandate.

This makes about as much sense as instructing NASA to make more efforts to placate muslims er oh wait.
