  1. Is there anything to improve holding the camera? It just seems like it would be awkward to hold for long periods of time if doing hand held taping.
  2. Is a video capable DSLR as good as a dedicated video camera?
  3. I am in search of a quality video camera, prefarable with internal storage, and capable of shooting HD video in MP4 format. The camera will have two principle uses: filming interviews and filming my forthcoming spawn. So indoor and outdoor usage. I've done a bit of looking around on line and cannot find any sources I find to be really reliable. Thanks.
  4. I bought a set of Steelseries Wireless H earlier this year and could not be happier with my purchase. The sound quality seems pretty good to me, but I'm by no means an audiophile. They seem to hold a charge for a decent time and they beep when there's about 20 minutes left. Gives you ample time to find a chance to swap out the battery pack (and it comes with two).
  5. @LinusTech, from a soon to be TechDad to an existing TechDad, any chance of reviewing some Kid related gadgets? I.e. baby monitors and things. I be more specific, but I'm not a dad yet and don't know what all is out there yet. Thanks.
  6. I have a Constellation now, but if the opportunity presents itself I'll upgrade to a Retaliator or an Idris.
  7. Thanks for all the suggestions! I was hesitent to use the powerline solution due to the age of the wiring (and I don't want to spend that much money on a solution that might not work). The running along the baseboards was nixed by the wife, that had been my earliest solution. So it seems measure and fishing is the best choice. Assuming I don't screw up and drill up into a room. :blink:

    You may want to perform som error checking to garuntee the input value is greater than or equal to zero and less than the size of the array. Otherwise it will core.
  9. The main topic seems to have been answered, but I thought I'd point this out. You called: ofstream file;file.open("C:\\x\\serial.txt"); Which, as someone said, wipes the file out every time you open it. If you wanted to open the file to append to it, use the following: ofstream file;file.open("C:\\x\\serial.txt", std::ios::app); But moving it outside the for loop was the best option in this case.
  10. My wife and I bought a house this past summer. Its an older one, built in the 50s or 60s, and something about its construction just seems to kill wireless traffic if you're outside of the room with the router. This hasn't particularly been an issue for me till now. Now I have a gaming PC in my office and I want the internet to be fast and reliable. This just reinfored my desire to wire the house with ethernet. All the guides for wiring seem to involve going into the attic and gaining wall access by dropping things down through the header plates. Well, we have no attic, flat roof. We do have nearly a full basement (plus a few crawlspaces and one room on a slab). Can anyone make any recommendations or give pointers on how to run the cable in this situation? All I've come up with is to remove a wall and then drill done through the subfloor, but this seems excessive.
  11. I have about 20 or so. I recently purged a lot though. Mine are a variety of tech, science, gaming, and history related channels.
  12. I've ordered the parts for the gaming rig, itching to get started. @ciprian97pop, I waited, and I'm not super impressed, yet. Ok, to be fair, the reviewers aren't super impressed, I think a cheaper chip should be fine for the time being. But your point about no USB 3 and SATA 6 Gb/s is a good one (thanks!). The more advanced socket type will also let me switch to a newer CPU if I see the need in the future. Soooo, with that in mind, I've updated the HTPC a bit: PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant / Benchmarks CPU: AMD A4-4000 3.0GHz Dual-Core Processor ($43.68 @ Mwave) Motherboard: MSI A88XM-E35 Micro ATX FM2+ Motherboard ($75.55 @ Newegg) Memory: G.Skill Ripjaws Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) DDR3-1600 Memory ($43.92 @ NCIX US) Storage: Crucial V4 64GB 2.5" Solid State Disk ($77.68 @ SuperBiiz) Case: Silverstone GD06B HTPC Case ($119.99 @ Amazon) Power Supply: SeaSonic 300W 80+ Bronze Certified ATX Power Supply ($39.99 @ Mwave) Optical Drive: Pioneer BDC-207DBK Blu-Ray Reader, DVD/CD Writer ($45.37 @ OutletPC) Total: $446.18 (Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available.)

  13. Writing a compiler in the language that is supposed to compile is call Bootstrapping. It is one of the preferred ways of going about the whole process. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bootstrapping_%28compilers%29
  14. I'll echo the crys of use an IDE. Eclipse is a great one with lots of nice addons, expecially if you get into having to deal with CMing your code.
  15. Honestly, I left the optical drive on that one out of habit. I suppose I could always just swap the thing between the two machines if I need it on the Gaming machine. I want the 16 GB so that I can potentially game while I'm waiting for compiles/runs on the VM. And just in case, I've never thought to myself I have to much memory.
