re: Internet Speed question regarding mbps - Korkstand
Physically plugged in with a cable is always going to be more reliable than wireless, and I will always recommend using a cable wherever possible. Your speed is pretty good (granted I don't know what speed you're paying for), though I would like to see the upload speed a little higher. That s...

re: Infrared lights for surveillance cameras - Korkstand
[quote]They are day / night cameras.[/quote] If they are day/night, and their own IR LEDs just aren't bright enough, then you can pick up any IR floodlight from Amazon or wherever and light it up. I don't have a specific recommendation, but maybe try to get one that tuns off during the day. It prob...

re: Infrared lights for surveillance cameras - Korkstand
[quote]I just assumed any IR light would work.[/quote]Any IR light [i]will[/i] work, but only if they are day/night cameras. Regular daytime cameras need an IR filter in front of the sensor, otherwise it'll pick up infrared light and distort the colors in the image during the day, but this preve...

re: Infrared lights for surveillance cameras - Korkstand
Do you have cameras already? Are they day/night and have their own IR LEDs, but they aren't sufficient to illuminate the area you're watching? If they don't have LEDs at all, it's likely the cameras have a fixed IR filter and an IR flood light won't help....

re: "SD" Antenna Challenge - Korkstand
You know, you could just tell people that an antenna is an antenna without being a dick about it. It kind of bothers me, too, that people refer to them as "HD", but can you blame them when manufacturers market them as such?...

re: Legalities surrounding KODI vs Illegally sharing copyrighted material via P2P? - Korkstand
[quote]The core of the argument isn't about one copy or two, it is about access. It is about whether or not you can access it and legally use it outside of when you had the right to access it (when it was broadcast, you purchased it like PPV, or you have an allowed copy). As I understood it, CAD was...

re: How are humans so much more advanced than any other animal on Earth? - Korkstand
Others have explained how quickly intelligence can evolve from what we consider "dumb" to smart, and some of the keys to make that happen. Just a couple of things starts a snowball. So my question for you is, what do you think would be the sheer odds of MULTIPLE species evolving higher intellige...
