I'm running OpenELEC on a RaspberryPi B+ w a class 10 8 GB microSD card. It's wired to my router which also has a RedayNas 201 on it.

I'm planning to setup a HDHomeRun Extend. How do I use TVHeadEnd to PVR OTA TV to my ReadyNas?

Dear +Dave DeBaeremaeker

You, my friend, are a PUNK! I finally decided to start reading your novel. I was able to read through all of it this morning while doing other stuff at work.

I loved the beginning. it felt very much like Douglas Adams and then the Ranger encounter later on felt very Scooby Doo-ish. I especially like how you put parts of yourself into various characters. I think my favourite Easter Egg was the names of the two main characters. to which I only two words for you:
Dude... Excellent!!!

Everything was going great until I reached the end of Chapter 9 to notice.... DOH!! He hasn't finished posting all the chapters yet!

Cool! I'd love to get a PDF copy to load into Kindle or iBooks.

I'm hosting a Geocaching event on Friday to earn the Road Trip Crew souvenir so I won't be able to read it until Saturday night.

Awesome story so far. And the way you did the caches and clues is very cool.

Hey There #Geocachers :

What do you look for in a #WhereIGo cache? Trivia, logic problems, tour guide, or something else?

Bleh! I've tried Ingress. It seems cool. But I don't have that much spare time or tons of data on my plan.

I'm looking to do a series of caches themed on the TV show LOST and I wanted to do all the different cache types: Traditional, Multi, Mystery, Letterbox, & WhereIGo

Has anyone else noticed that in your #PocketQuery emails from #Groundspeak that it's a download link instead of an attachment to your email?

I guess they are just saving upload bandwidth. But I used to count on those emails having attachments. That way I don't get boned for data usage when I save it to my smartphone later.

these days I just download em to Locus Pro, then export a single aggregated PQ from there to my GPSr.  Saves a lot of futzing around.

Techy Friends I need your help:

Is there a native Windows 7 tool/DOS command/or utility that would let me write the current file location into BLOB type properties field?

So I got my wife, daughter, and muggle family friends (The Evangelista's) to agree to go on the car rally.

I'd been on a car rally as a kid so I was interested to go on one with a geocaching twist.

We had a great start and were getting most of the clues. We had to double back for the first cache (no stickers, just a logbook) which threw off our odometer count.

When we finally made it through the hoard of cyclists we took some wrong turns. And even after opening the emergency map we were still lost because the police wouldn't double back through the cyclists.

So with two 4-yr-old kids in tow who were losing patience we decided to call it quits. We skipped ahead to the 1st Checkpoint, checked out of the race, and let the kids have fun running in the park.

The great news is that the rally was so well organized that we can do a bit each weekend over the next few months.

Thanks for the fun & the smiley!

I have a table (LINKS) where I want to create new records based upon old records. But some of the fields I want to change.

So from LINKS I want to auto populate with ENT_ID_1, ENT_TYP_1, ENT_TYP_2, but I want to make ENT_ID_2=185, and UPDATE_WHO=177 based upon WHERE ID in (1, 5, 12).

I know I can do the query below. But where do I fit my UPDATE_WHO & ENT_ID_2 fields in?

INSERT INTO Links(ENT_ID_1, ENT_TYP_1, ENT_TYP_2)
SELECT ENT_ID_1, ENT_TYP_1, ENT_TYP_2
FROM Links
WHERE ID in (1, 5, 12

So it turns out you just need to name the field in the INSERT line and put the values you want to use in the SELECT line.

INSERT INTO Links(ENT_ID_1, ENT_TYP_1, ENT_TYP_2, ENT_ID_2, UPDATE_WHO)
SELECT ENT_ID_1, ENT_TYP_1, ENT_TYP_2, 185, 237
FROM Links
WHERE ID in (1, 5, 12

So I'm making a cache that will basically be a pull down blind that goes back up into a PVC pipe suspended by a pressure rod (like in your shower) between the front and back of a road sign (with permission). The idea is that it will just be a giant logbook. What size would you give it: Regular or Other?

My #RaspberryPi wouldn't update to #OpenELEC 5.0 with a reboot. I'm supposed to be able to drop the .tar file in the update folder and do a reboot that way. There is no UPDATE folder. #Help

Maybe this helps?  I haven't worked this distro yet.  https://github.com/OpenELEC/OpenELEC.tv/issues/3893

I heard about this new technology. IKEA calls its the 'Book Book'.
The logbook contains a chronicle of everyone who has seen the bug, and where it has been. While most of that is recorded on the online logs, that information is often not easy to get to in the field. Not to mention it is cool to have a physical record of its journeys, like stamps in a passport.

Truthfully, the IKEA catalogue IS awesome. The way they seamlessly integrated the physical catalogue with their app & website is something that should make MANY retailers jealous.

June 18, 2014 was when they removed the attachments from the PQ e-mails.
