IPv6 & Video Streaming

I’m currently working with the IPv6 protocol in TSSG. I was looking for a client for doing some Video Streaming and came across VideoLAN, which is a very impressive client. Internally we use it with Apache as a video server from which we can view short clips, for testing the IPv6 network. Its well worth a look if your into that sort of thing.

Science Week – WIT

Got a few minutes to drop into the Gym in the College. Several local companies have stands there, as do several college departments. The Physics, Engineering and the Tssg stand are all generating lots of interest.

For me though, the a Air Corps stand is the best. The have several robots, much like what can been seen on Robot Wars, they demonstrated the power of one of them while I was there, completely destroying the victim (an old video recorder). Santa, I want one!

Solar Power

Miguel and I were chatting, talking about how cool it would be to power a house (or part of it) harnessing solar power. Well as I was looking for Phil Karns postings for the previous blog entry, I came across this on Phils homepage purely by chance.
