New: The incredible (local) Jukebox, which plays
music song on the server and the connected audio system, when it is on.
Basicallyou need to wait when for instance the garden door is open, and
the equipment on but no music of mine playing, bring your portable
internet (for instance a mobile phone with browser, click on the
Jukebox link, and you (normally I) can chose to play one of the 1600+
songs in perfect wav quality. Of course I don't upload these songs... I
should do a demo of this maybe some day, somewhere.
New! Beware of the theover.org BirdCam..

on a higher bandwidth server for some HD film material I made.
Local, because it is served from a Linux/apache webserver, which I
installed and maintain myself, even though the machine wasn't paid for
by me, I did put the machine together from parts as well. It's a 3.3GHz
Athlon 64bit running Redhat Fedora Core 4/64 which is on a ' normal'
but fast consumer Adsl modem allowing about 0.750 Mega bits/sec. upload
speed, costing about 6% processor load when fully used by people
surfing to these pages, meaning at
the same time someone with a 512 adsl line together with 4
people fully using their 56k6 modem or their (single) Isdn line, at
full bandwidth. Cool enough. It is not really sufficient for high
quality video serving, for instance HD movies need to be downloaded at
much slower speeds than direct playing would require.

I´m into High Definition TV at the moment I can make 1080i
material and also display it, and edit movies at such quality. A
(noisy) example of what HD looks like is shown below, this fits only on
a screen of at least 1920x1080 pixels, which is a lot more pixels than
most computer screens at the moment have, but looks real good on a HD
capable screen. Imagine this picture is static, but HD movies actually move at these resolutions, and using
the Nvidia Purevideo
capabilities of at least a 6000 series card, these size images can move
smooth, really completely smooth even, at 25 frames per second (or 50
interlaced for 1080i) for just $20 by allowing the graphics card to
accelerate MPEG-2 decoding in hardware for windows media player. I
know, I know, its hard enough to get DVD or anormal TV (D1 video)
signal to work without stutter and blocks for most ´normal´
computers but I´d swear on my (virtual) mothers grave I can play
these movies REALLY without stutter and even well-de-interlaced (a
pentium D930 3Gig with 6700nvidia card and serial ata recent disc
helps, of course) which is great:
I´m sure the jpeg is already to big to be comfortable, but
picture quality has suffered when compared to the original because of
jpeg compression, and motion makes the noise a bit clearer, but also
