Measuring environmental aircraft noise (Zelfbouw meetstation voor meten vlieghinder.pdf – Google Drive)

Posted by jpluimers on 2022/10/12

I’ll be following this guideline (or maybe by now already have): Zelfbouw meetstation voor meten vlieghinder.pdf (Google Drive)

This is what I needed:

If you do not have a Raspberry Pi, then you can get it from them as a package for EUR 115 (including case, preinstalled microSD-card, charger and WiFi adapter):[Wayback/Archive.is] Raspberry Pi Zusatzkit zum Komplettpaket Lärm (with configuration manual at [Wayback] Anleitung Raspberry.pdf)

Na migratie van XS4ALL naar KPN zijn al je telefoon-doorschakelingen weg: hoe dit te herstellen (spoiler: de on-line aanwijzingen kloppen niet)

Posted by jpluimers on 2022/09/02

In het kader van “kunnen dingen bij ons nooit eens normaal gaan?” het korte antwoord: nee.

Voorbeeld:

Voor de migratie van XS4ALL naar KPN hadden diverse telefoondoorschakelingen in gebruik (met name vertraagd doorschakelen: individuele nummers in ons huishouden gingen vertraagd door naar de bijbehorende mobiele nummers).

Na de migratie waren die allemaal weg. Het duurde even voor we daarachter waren omdat sinds de corona-periode vrijwel altijd iemand thuis is.

Kort en goed: we kamen er dus achter toen er niemand thuis was en we een opmerking kregen onbereikbaar te zijn (door iemand die ons mobiele nummer niet had).

Herstellen was ingewikkelder dan bedacht, want als je deze voor de hand liggende stappen van XS4ALL en KPN volgt kom je met een kluitje in het riet terecht:

DroidCam – Webcam for PC – Apps on Google Play

Posted by jpluimers on 2021/12/21

Since most phones still have better cameras than most laptops, this is on my list of things to try:

Android app: [Wayback/Archive] DroidCam – Webcam for PC – Apps on Google Play (there is also an iOS app, but I don’t use iOS devices)

Client software for Windows and Linux:  [Wayback/Archive] Dev47Apps

DroidCam turns your phone/tablet into a webcam for your PC.
Use it with chat programs like Zoom, MS Teams, and Skype.

Main Features:
– Chat using “DroidCam Webcam” on your computer, including Sound and Picture.
– Connect over WiFi or USB cable.
– Unlimited free usage at standard definition.
– Keep using your phone with DroidCam in background (Android).
– Simple, safe, efficient, and trusted by millions of people worldwide.

DroidCamX Pro Features:
– Switch to HD Mode for 720p/1080p high definition video.
– Camera controls: toggle light, enable continuous auto focus, zoom in/out.
– Rotate, Flip & Mirror the video to better match your setup.
– Adjust brightness, contrast, add video delay and adjust audio volume (Windows).
– USB-Only mode for extra privacy and security.
– Option to auto-mute phone calls.
– No Ads.

I am really curious how they did this on the software side: developing and signing drivers; low-latency communications protocol, etc.
