Our neighbors

For years foxes have used this 'dry water course' for their dens. There are several openings in the bank. The largest on the left is where they have a litter of kits (at least I'm sure they do). Probably by the end of the month we will get to see them. They are very active at night. I installed seve...

Re: Recommended hardware configuration for 43 cameras

Re: camera names

I haven't named my cameras yet (other than woods_1, deck, garage etc) but I have named my computers: Monster (a 2950X Threadripper), Junior and Farfel (one of our dogs). I've also named my 2 NAS' - Mulva and Mulva_12. Now we'll see who knows where that comes from (you get 1 Junior Mint).

Re: NTP clocks and LAN disconnected from the internet

You got me to thinking today and in literally 5 minutes I had a solution. I have a couple of Synology NAS' on my network. With 2 keystrokes I had my NTP :) With a...
