Western Digital Blue Solid State Drive arrived. This was being installed into another computer that only had a 256GB SSD. The extra space this larger capacity one will give is welcomed with open arms.
After many years of using Dropbox – today I deleted my account. I haven’t used Dropbox since they started to restrict my number of devices – which previously wasn’t being enforced.
I was never a paid user, because to be honest the service is too expensive.
If you’d like to determine your system’s serial number in Windows 10 – but don’t want to boot into the BIOS to check it. You can execute the following command below from command tool to obtain the required information;
wmic bios get serialnumber
Created a new video that demonstrates an installation of Commvault software onto a Linux client who resides in a restricted network. i.e. My client has no direct communication to Commserve.
If the video helps you, please provide feedback. This helps with the motivation needed to do this sort of thing.
I noticed that our QSS301-04L-P4 Security NVR has an RTSP service. I thought if it would be easy enough to access the live stream via RTSP and capture an image.
Turns out, it’s not that difficult and can be performed using ffmpeg. Once you have ffmpeg binary available for your platform, execute it like so.
ffmpeg -y -i rtsp://username:firstname.lastname@example.org:554/unicast/c1/s0/live -vframes 1 image-capture.jpg
The above example will capture image from c1 (Channel 1) and s0 (Stream 0 = main high resolution stream).
Came across some old archived files, and it contained an old BBStro from Central Park West.
Thought it might be a good idea to build a Windows installation where I could run the BBStro and get some screen grabs so we can remember what it looked like.
As I think as time goes on it will be near impossible to run this BBStro ever again.
