Fried Turkey How-to and AAR

24 November 2012

Fried turkey taste like bacon flavored turkey. No kidding, once you've tasted fried turkey, you'll probably never care to eat a baked turkey again. This is my second year frying a turkey. Most of what I learned last year I forgot this year, and to make matters worse, I lost the instruction manual for my turkey fryer. However, these notes and AARs will likely help me remember what I need to do to make a fried turkey for next year and improve on the process. I decided to post so you (the reader) can have a consolidated fried turkey how to.

Turn a Webcam into a security camera with Dropbox and iSpy

16 November 2012

I used Dropbox (http://www.dropbox.com/) to provide online storage for iSpy (http://www.ispyconnect.com/) to capture pictures and video when motion is detected. iSpy saves the pictures and video to my online web storage so if the computer that is taking the video is stolen, I still have the evidence offsite. That and I can monitor security from outside the house.This shouldn't cost any money as long as you have a webcam and a persistent internet connection. It's great for dorm rooms or home office security.
