  1. Hey everyone, I have a promo code which gets you 50% off on a La Fonera router (aka Fon 1.0), making the final price $15 USD. I've only got 1 code so the first to PM me gets it. Here is a link to the Fon 1.0 - https://shop.fon.com/FonShop/shop/US/ShopCo...product=PRD-001
  2. I would think TomB would be able to help with this one, but I personally have no idea.
  3. I would highly recommend a homebrew solution utilizing linux/bsd and samba/ftp Get an old mobo or a new cheap mobo and a sata card. I've been running my homebrew nas for several years now, works great.
  4. I'm going to take some time to try and build this out over the holidays. I'll be trying VLC at first, but the native Skype client for Linux does do video, so that's certainly an option.
  5. Awesome idea guys, whoever has the box can add me to the list.
  6. Awesome stuff here, definitely need some pics of the setup.
  7. By far the best story of the day... http://www.pcpro.co.uk/news/242520/teacher...over-linux.html Reply from HeliOS: http://linuxlock.blogspot.com/2008/12/linu...-kids-back.html
  8. Alright, so I realized I hadn't released an episode of my IPTV/Vidcast Poorboys in a looooong time. (Yeah, it has been like a year) Sooo, I released a brand new episode on Sunday! Check it out at http://poorboys.tv I'd really appreciate some feedback in the replies. Thanks for watching guys. - Your friendly IRC OP, DarkSenay
  9. After doing a bit of research, I've found that many of the slingbox type hardware devices only allow a user to recieve their stream via proprietary software. Unfortunately, these companies have not taken the time nor effort to develop a playback application for Linux, Mac, etc. This is why I would like to build a homebrew slingbox. I'll be doing some research and development to build out this device, but I just wanted to throw out the idea to see if anyone else might be interested. Another application for this device could be remote security monitoring or similar application. An ultimate goal for this project would be to have a webUI for remote channel control and viewing via a live flash video (or similar) feed. Software thoughts: LIRC - for IR transmission (changing the channel on a remote cable box or similar) http://www.lirc.org/transmitters.html VLC - for video streaming and playback http://www.videolan.org Any thoughts or help would be greatly appreciated.
  10. Looks like you guys had a good time! My apologies for not being able to attend, I'll most definitely be able to make the next one since I won't be buying another home any time soon.
  11. Looks like I will not be going to make it. I got scheduled on a 14 week software implementation @ work and can't get out during the meetup due to a project milestone. I'll keep good on my part of the hostel though, Tim let me know how you want me to get the $$ to you. My apologies all.
  12. Well dude, if I'm coming from the USA, I might as well make it worthwhile. Sooooo, any suggestions? I've been to amsterdam already, but I'd like to see more.
  13. Ok, well I plan on arriving in Europe the Saturday before the meetup, I'm looking for some options on places to fly in/stay. If anyone has any suggestions let me know. I was thinking of flying into Amsterdam staying there for a few days, and then flying out of Berlin on Sunday.
