Does anyone have experiences with IP cameras, wireless or otherwise. Commentssuggestions appreciated.
I'd be interested in knowing if anyone has located a *cheap* IP camera. I'd love to deploy a few of them in and around my house -- partially for security but mostly for the fun factor. :)

One snowstorm the entire season. Looks like you lost this round.
So fucking cool:
/me needs to start manufacturing a reprap.
Samsung NP305E5A-A03US for $479.99: http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=176
There is also a Toshiba and Gateway lappy with similar specs (either Core i5-2450M or AMD A6-3420m).
Comments/suggestions/s? How do Asus/Samsungf/Gateway/Toshiba stack up against the other? Longevity? Durability? etc.?
Wow! I like it.
Dell Inspiron 15RN-3647 15.6" Laptop - $499.99
But as I mentioned elsewhere, I think my next laptop will probably something more like the Asus Transformer than a traditional laptop (once the prices come down of course).

Check this out.
I'm so excited about devices like this starting to become available at super-low prices. Eventually the SoC's will become so commoditized that they'll simply build them into every new monitor and television. The specs on this one are quite reasonable for running Android, which would make it perfect if you wanted to combine it with a monitor and make a nice little Internet terminal, or if you wanted to plug it into your TV and use it to watch YouTube etc.
I was going to buy a Raspberry Pi when they became available, but now I might change my mind.
"Army to wise up"...

This one will sell for USD $49. It only runs at 720 resolution instead of 1080, but it has a lower price, includes both HDMI and VGA outputs, and if you look at the photos it is obviously designed for you to "build a computer out of it."
Network Computing was touted in the 1990's as the future. The future is here.
(As appropriate, "your servers" can mean your personal server, or your organization's own servers, or even servers run by a provider you trust, as opposed to in a gooplesoftzon data center somewhere.)
someone else's server but not everone has access to that as you do. I have found that my home IP address seems to be pretty static,
even after replacing the modem but the up stream on this line is horrible. I can not afford a business line or a new server at this
time. Most people are not as lucky as you and have access to a trusted service.
You have to question what the risks are if someone has access to all of your files. I realize that anything I write in a GMAIL could theoretically be read by any Google employee... They'd be seriously bored if they did though. I'm just not worried.
For a business, it's a different story - you might have trade secrets and such.
Privacy isn't something that really exists, unless you're under the covers with the curtains drawn.
What's more, it NEVER really existed. Any time you have a society, people want to know other people's secrets.
The internet's made it easier to do on a mass scale. In some ways, that's better, because chances are, the people snooping on you will never meet you.
Yes, I sound a bit tinfoil-hat here...
The other side is - don't let your fear of intrusion control you. Control data that needs controlling, and accept that everything else *could* be seen by someone somewhere.
(btw, I use credit cards online and have never had one stolen, though I do choose PayPal whenever possible, because I think it's slightly more secure.)
We had our own server for everything else but we reached a point where we couldn't keep up once the spam started to hit.
