Today the dash camera came in handy, as I had it installed in my car and running. Just as well as I captured this driver who has no regard for others.
You’ll notice at 100km/hr this driver pretty much just about wipes me out, and it was only avoided cause I jumped on the brakes and clutch immediately as they lane changed onto me that I avoided them.
No audio in the clip, as you could imagine I was pretty angry and said a few bad words. This could of been very serious had they actually hit me at that speed (considering the concrete wall diving the road).
People like this driver need to drive with more care, as a basic head check along with mirrors would of clearly saw me.
This person is going to cause an accident if they continue to drive in this manner.
Two shows I recently started to watch in the last 3 months is “Arrow” and “The Flash“. If you haven’t watched either of these, I completely recommend.
Arrow got me hooked after watching a season, and someone mentioned to me that it had an overlap with “The Flash”, which I didn’t know and started to watch it too.
Big thumbs up from me. Hooked.
Finally got our G1W-C Dash Camera and took some test footage. I picked this footage, as the car in the shot appeared to be a possible undercover Police car, as I caught a glimpse of a blue strobe light on the dash.
Funny enough, when I went back through my footage from 15mins prior to the footage above, the same car is visible again, so I think they must of been cruising around the 50km/hr zones looking for people not obeying the sign posted speed limits.
Footage in my opinion has come out rather good if you ask me.
Heard a song today that I haven’t heard in a very long time. Soon as I heard it I could remember one of the many times I heard it many many many years ago.
I can remember one of the many times we would be out driving in the car, and 2 the radio tuned to 2WS (now called WSFM). Being the 80’s you would of course get all the 80’s tunes. So hearing some of these now brings back fond memories.
The tune today that initiated a memory was Billy Ocean – Caribbean Queen.
Other songs that come to mind from this period of my childhood are below;
Who doesn’t like Lego right?
I had a large amount of Lego as a kid, however I sold it in my teens. Yes, I know looking back on it, that this was probably not a wise idea. My kids love it and it’s something I could of gave them. Oh well.
Today we went into Sydney to check out the Lego display, and also checked out Myer, as they have some Lego displays in store too.
To mark the day, I allowed the kids to pick out a Lego item, and of course I thought might be appropriate that I also grab something too. I ended up selecting the Lego Technic Container Truck – 42024 for myself. I hate to imagine how much time this thing is going to take me to build. Will start on it tomorrow (or later in the week).
Yesterday I received another Intel DN2820FYKH NUC computer.
I had ordered another one with the intent of running a Mythtv Backend and Frontend using a Realtek USB tuner.
I’ve installed Mythbuntu and got everything working, however I really like using Debian itself, and will look at doing a more custom install with Debian. So the plan is work on a Debian 7.7.0 x64 install.
I’ve configured this new Intel NUC with the usual 8GB ram (max it can take) and Dual Band 802.11ac wireless (as it’s only a $24 upgrade to buy the card), and I had a spare 500GB laptop drive, which I installed too.
Will be sure to post more about my progress regarding the Debian installation and tweaking it all.
The Dash Camera that I ordered several weeks ago, as posted about here has finally arrived.
Won’t be able to use it until my birthday, so I will post more about it once I have had a chance to install it and use it for a little bit. Will certainly also link to some video clips I take with it too.
My wife and kids attended the Green Eggs and Ham breakfast, which is new thing for Carnival and has been first rolled out to Carnival Legend cruise ship.
Below is a few pictures of the food from the menu for this event.
Unfortunately my wife tells me that eating them for her was near impossible and after several bites had to get something normal. Believe she was referring to the Green Eggs and Ham.
