Why "rm -rf /*" when you can "blkdiscard /dev/mmcblk0"? :)

I need suggestions for where to host some content:

I'm working on a semi-open source project for #RealJob, which is under wraps for now, but I've got several "stepping stones" I'd like to document for the general open-source community. The details are mostly applicable to the Zynq/SoC+FPGA systems from Xilinx/Altera, but several things apply to any embedded system running Linux. Stuff like managing reserved memory, DMA, and IRQs from user-space without writing any kernel code.

Where's a good place to put this sort of info? Hackaday.io? eLinux.org? Xilinx/Altera Forums? ???

G+ Peeps: I'm looking for a cheap HDMI camera to use for a project. It just needs to output live video via HDMI, and not cost a fortune (720p60, 1080p30, 1080p60 or similar). I got a couple dash-cams from China with mini-HDMI ports, but they don't actually output HDMI (or I haven't figured out how to make them work properly, or they're broken). I have ordered an off-brand SJ4000 "action camera" which I hope might work, but it will not arrive for a few weeks.

Any suggestions on a low-cost HDMI camera I should try out? This is for an NAB project which will be a (mostly) open-source hardware and software video streaming application using an SoC+FPGA and NewTek's NDI. I'm willing to take a chance on most anything in the under $25 range, and will consider anything under $50.

Forget that tootsie pop stuff. How many VLANs does it take to run a Cicso WLC? THAT is the question!!!

When you cross-platform so much you hit <ctrl>s in vi and can remember how to turn back on the keyboard without a Google search. :)

Are we in a Culture or a BSG Universe?!? I'm not sure, but given recent political events, I"m going with BSG #cylon: https://www.ted.com/talks/maurice_conti_the_incredible_inventions_of_intuitive_ai

Somewhere in my office (probably within arm's reach) is the 1/4" to 1/8" stereo headphone adapter I need, but it is managing to remain hidden. On the plus side, I found a Palm Pilot stylus...I'm sure that will come in handy for something!
