      And I finally mounted my new Samsung 43" TV, which I received last summer as part of my Verizon promo package. This is the fist TV I've had that required internet and WiFi connection, and all sorts of disclaimers about how Samsung can monitor my TV and internet habits to provide an "enhanced viewing experience". But except for the nice large picture, I dislike the barrage of ads or viewing suggestions that persist when powered up. Maybe I need to learn more about it. I think maybe I can get video from the internet as opposed to Verizon FIOS on the HDMI port. And perhaps I can connect it as well to my computer as a large monitor.

                  • Paul, check you have unlimited download quota before getting too excited about any special features on an internet TV or it could cost a bit. I think a few years ago all the Samsungs did was stream a couple of their own naff channels. It might give you youtube now, or maybe you get that off your Verizon box.

                    • We live in a nice middle class suburb of San Francsico. Evidentally 35 miles away is considered a suburb. Crime rates are low enough that I remember all the homicides in the last 30 years. Well, that's changing. We are evidently importing scum who are breaking into cars and homes. There have been several cases this last year of home invasion robberies where they break down doors while people are home. When caught, these idiots are almost always from neighboring cities. Some have come from as far as 100 miles away. Sigh.

                      I've spent a lot of time recently trying to get several different security cameras to work on a sequestered network. They came from thee different manufacturers and work OK when plugged into my local network. For various reasons, once they are installed in a hard to reach place and switched to run on the wireless network with a static IP they go into never never land. Today I discovered :

                      1) The amcrest cameras work fine BUT they use the default route from the wired network even when they are on wifi only. To make it work I need to do all configuration while it's connected to the LAN of the restricted network before I install them.
                      2) The IPCAM (ipcam.xin) branded cameras have different software versions despite what it says on the camera's "information" page. One of them will not connect to a WiFI SSID that has an underscore. The other one works fine with camera_net. Go figure.

                      They need to be sequestered because they are pretty much the poster child for insecure devices. They were made overseas and passed through several channels to get here. Even so, fairly good video. I can even keep an eye on my cars.

                      At the end of the project, there is a profound difference between spare parts and left over parts.

                        • Bob Engelhardt Now that's my kind of fix! If you'd (unnecessarily) used stainless, I'd have been convinced it was one of mine!

                            • Hah... I have one of those "Diamond Calk Horseshoe Co" 4" wrenches also. Those things are very well made.

                              And they seem to be collectibles.........

                              • I taught a bunch of senior mechanical engineering majors how to read micrometers and dial calipers today. I know they're not machinists, but still you'd expect them to be somewhat familiar with such tools especially after taking a principles of measurement and instrumentation class.
