I have a bug that has just come up recently.

Randomly, Android Auto freezes on my receiver. My phone hasn't frozen. it works just fine. If i'm on a call, that isn't affected. Just any navigation or media that is playing just stops. I found this out the hard way as I wasn't paying attention to where I was going and I drove for 30 minutes in the wrong direction not realizing my navigation had frozen.

I'm getting a new Nexus 6 to replace the one I've got. I've had some random reboots and hoping this one is better. Maybe that will fix the issue.

Sighthound Alternative

Hey Community! So I'm about to invest in a home server. Probably a Dell R750. I'm planning to use it to run Plex, MythTV, and hopefully my IP cameras. Unfortunately, Sighthound doesn't think Linux users are important enough to develop for. Does anyone know of a comparable Linux alternative for Sighthound. Doesn't have to be free. I was prepared to drop the full $250 on the Enterprise version of Sighthound. 

Also, i'm thinking I'm going to shell out a bit more cash for a beefier server so I can get into home automation. Any good recommendations of platforms to head towards? Will probably port over to Brillo when it's finally ready for prime time but we're most likely still a year or so off from that.

Apparently, it seems you can only help if you know who he is and who to contact.. His name is Raymond Devere Johnson and he was a Signal Man on the USS LST 218 during World War ll. An email contact is being created by Cheryl Johnson Brown‎: LST218USA@gmail.com

Yeah. I think I may, for the first time, dual boot two different distros. Perhaps do like a primary distro as Solus OS and a secondary as Debian 7 or Arch stripped down with no desktop. Just a windows manager and that's all. Like a dev environment.

4G LTE on T-Mobile. Yeah. You are reading those numbers right.

Check out my Ookla Speedtest result. What's your speed? http://www.speedtest.net/my-result/a/1385519732

Sounds like a public webpage/server that is secured, preferable with good login and certificates.

I have looked at some software that do motion detection. Sleeop timers, what's that? Talk back isn't that hard. An ip phone server would fix that.
Handled a 500G usb disk is no problem, file servers isn't anything strange.

So the components are there, but I don't know anyone that put them together to a system.

Or? There are a linux based media center that would do what you want. LinuxMCE could be what you want.

Have you checked out Lenovo's ThinkServers? I've been using the ts140 for my home server and couldn't be happier. For the price I think they're hard to beat.

Xeoma works on Linux, but is very odd in how you set it up. Sadly the options that use Linux are small. Zoneminder so far has been hard to configure for mocap and get the sensitivity right.

Introduction

PLEASE READ: If you are going to add me to your circles and want me to add you back, please have a picture of yourself as your profile picture and some information about you in your profile. I hope that's not asking too much.

I am a normal guy living my life in love with my college sweetheart and wife, Hannah. We have two awesome dogs, Brody Bear and Cocha. Check out my photos to see them.

I am bound to my GOD by the sin He saved me from, and no amount of generosity or philanthropy will free my from dependence on His grace. That is my blessing.

Stuff I'm into:

  • Boutique Fine Wine (primarily French, German & Spanish)
  • Craft Beer (I like balanced beer. Not a huge fan of over malted stouts or over hoppy IPAs. Life is about balance and moderation and my taste in beer is similar)
  • Whisky - as a general rule I try to keep my cabinet stocked with one single malt Scotch whisky, one blended Scotch whisky, and one Kentucky Bourbon at all times. They're all fantastic but I just depends what kind of mood I'm in.
  • Music - if you want to know the kind of music I'm into just search Google+ for #eclecticcollection. I post stuff pretty regularly under that hashtag. 
  • The merger of society and technology for the purpose of the enrichment of life in general. In the words of Google CEO, Larry Page, "Technology sould do the hard work, so you can get on and live your life."

Favorite Quotes:

"I fear the man who drinks water and so remembers this morning what the rest of us said last night." ~Benjamin Franklin~

They aren't taking any new patients right now, which is fine. But they wont even recommend somewhere else for us to go. I called twice and the lady that answers the phone is rude and unhelpful

I'm from Texas and have lived in Atlanta for a year. This is, HANDS DOWN, the best Mexican food i have had in GA. I had two of the tacos and the tostada. All were absolutely amazing! Also, horchata wasn't made from a mix. We are about to buy a house in this area and we will be regulars here, for sure.

Terrible service. I literally hadn't been to a papa johns in over 10 years so I thought I'd give it another try. I went online to order and their website wasn't working. I called to place the order and they wouldn't honor the coupon because it was online only. I told her their website wasn't working and she just said "sorry". Then she said " thanks for calling" and hung up. Guess I won't eat. I'm ordering from pizza hut right now. Apparently papa John's didn't want my business that Mich anyway.

This was previously a 1 star. Look at the bottom and see what I initially wrote... BUT, I have converted my review into a 5 star review simply due to the way they handled our experience. Upon Penske reading my review and receiving a letter I sent to their executive management, they called me directly on my cell phone. They didn't make excuses or otherwise "pass the buck". They owned up to their mistakes and more than compensated us for not only the cost of the truck but also our trouble and inconvenience. Though this doesn't change the experience we had on our trip, this DEFINITELY changes my impression of the company. It is rare, in this day and age for a company of any size (let alone a company the size of Penske) to admin fault of any kind. Before they contacted me I was under the impression that this was a dishonest, unreliable company riddled with problems. After speaking with them and after them making it right I fully believe that this was a perfect storm of unfortunate circumstances. That being said, I will definitely give Penske another chance. Their trucks are in much better condition than U-haul's and their terms are more lenient. Bravo, Penske. You've more than redeemed yourself. For U-haul, I would classify them as a quality, reliable machine you can always depend on. For Penske, I would now put you in a pretty elite classification of a company that strives to give great customer service and cares about their customers. When something goes wrong, you bend over backward to make it right. Thank you for changing my opinion. Deceiving and a royal pain to work with. Truck seemed like a great deal. Very clean. Low miles. Nice sales people, but as I type this on my phone I am broken down on the side of the road. Their truck won't start and I can't get anyone to answer roadside assistance. I've been here for an hour and no one will help me. No idea what will happen.

My experience with Hertz is always really good. You cards are always nice people are very helpful I would recommend taking a shuttle to your hotel in renting from a Hertz off site because the airport fees are very high

I just genuinely didn't like the concept. Typically, when I go out for dinner and a movie, the dinner is the time to talk and socialize, then you shut up and enjoy a movie. At Cinebistro you get seated in the theater about 20 min before the show starts. You have until it starts to place your order. There is NO service after the movie starts. Essentially the experience is similar to if you sent to a restaurant, gave your order, and then after your food came, all the wait staff goes home. Then... The at 17% gratuity to ALL bills and then ask you to tip more. The server actually stand by gout table to see how much more you tip. At the end of the day, the tickets are a full $15 each. We got a dessert, 1 cocktail, and 2 black coffees. Out tab was an additional $35. So this was a movie with a light snack and out total was $65. We won't be back.
