General Chit-Chat Thread

Re: General Chit-Chat Thread
The device is meant to be a sort of low-cost video thing for composite cameras. Basically, something that sits in between a device with a video output and a device with a video input and does any number of things to the video as it goes by. Each video feed is processed and output by a cheapo ARM SBC, and the board they connect to has chips to input the video over the SBC's USB pins (eMPIA EM2860 + Philips video input processor, like in those cheap EasyCap dongles). It's meant to be scalable if more cameras are added (you can stick more boards full of SBCs onto its backplane).

Designed for a club I am a member of at my school. Probably not very useful in most situations today, but we use analog TVs and cameras because they are cheap or even free, so processing video feeds isn't necessarily as easy as "just ffmpeg it".

Congratulations! Should be a nice bump in salary, and it will probably be much easier to browse Reddit & eBay at work now Wink

I snagged a cheap parts xw8400 from eBay Canada yesterday - paid $30 for the system and $80 for shipping. It has the plastic base and floppy drive assembly, plus hopefully a cleaner top panel and some other bits I need. Now I just need to buy storage and it will be good to go. Just in time, because my ThinkPad is regularly locking up at this point.

Webhosting. Cloudlinux servers with cpanel and the like. Not anything novel, but it pays very well.

I just watched the latest 8-bit Guy unboxing video and caught your contribution - very nice! Was that something you found via the pawn shop?

Re: General Chit-Chat Thread
Correct, about five weeks ago. I planned to get around to messing with it but decided since he needed to pass it on.

People in the YT comments talking about me, I'm both a little happy and a little bothered. I'm a private person. I didn't expect people to make such a big deal about it.
