Maximum filename length 60 characters, le-sigh

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/12/26

It is still better than a maximum password length of 20 characters, but limits like these keep being reason for frustration:

Wasgij Destiny 17 INT ‘Paying the Price! 1000pcs – Jumbo

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/12/26

My mentally retarded brother got himself the below puzzle below. It’s a tad too much complicate for his IQ of ~50 as his ability for relative time is very very limited, so he cannot make most transitions from “then” to “now.

Imagine how the petrol station might look today. The cars will have changed, the fuel will have increased in price, but what about other things? Imagine the differences, and the similarities, between then and now.This is the scene you have to puzzle.

Luckily, I found Wasgij destiny 17 – YouTube who had the solution image and mailed it to me.

Now my brother can finish his puzzle: he is so exited!

Things like that need a reminder: the joy of reflection and lambdas…

Some links on multicast networking, Raspberry Pi and DVB USB adapters that help you build a TV server

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/12/26

A cool set of YouTube videos by CWNE88:

The USB device used here is this one:

Tuner is AVerMedia AVerTV Volar Green
There are 2 models, but the good one uses firmware dvb-usb-it9135-02.fw The other one uses dvb-usb-af9035-02.fw but that didn’t seem to work as well and got hot. They look the same on the outside though.
