How to Turn Your Computer Into the Ultimate Remote Access Media Server - Lifehacker
Golf clap for this article. "clap, clap." Nicely done. Key points to be emphasized: a) Running a server on many "home" ISP connections may be against the Terms of Service in your ISP contract. b) Using plain FTP (port 21) is crazy even with a password, unless you are publishing all the content for the world to have. c) VNC (any form) is not encrypted. d) If you are using HTTP, you probably plan to allow the world access to your files. e) Only ssh/sftp (port 22) out of all the choices in the article above, should be used externally. f) If you do open any external ports, make your life easier and on the outside, use a non-standard port and let your router forward to the internal "standard port" for your.

Top 10 Ways to Power Up Your Home Theater PC - Lifehacker This article makes it sound really easy. Don't be fooled. Until recently, I wasn't happy with my home media setup. Ok, I still haven't achieved paradise, but here's what I've learned. * QAM video recordings are beautiful. Much better than analog recordings over svideo or composite (yellow) cables. * You want QAM recording of cable TV, but more and more cable systems are encrypting 95% of the channels. * You probably want a networked QAM tuner - at least I did - to avoid PCI slot or USB issues even if you can only get 20 ClearQAM channels. * Some people have setup tuners to analog record from their cable boxes without CableCARD using either the Hauppauge 1212 (RGB-component) recorder or the s-video output from the STB into pretty much any generic TV tuner card if you don't care too much about video quality. * Downloading TV shows via BitTorrent or Usenet is illegal for many countries. * XBMC isn't a TV recording solution. * XBMC is best for mostly static video collections - like movies.

Sébastien "VR Geek" Kuntz » A Definition of VR Short definition Immersive Virtual Reality (iVR) is the science and technology required for a user to feel present, via perceptive, cognitive and functional immersion and interaction, in a generated environment. Introduction The term VR, Virtual Reality, seems now useless because it is too broadly defined and means different things to people. It ranges from any kind of 3D interactive application, to online metaverses like SecondLife, and finally to immersive VR. For me VR is Immersive Virtual Reality, the ultimate alternate reality we can get ! The terms ‘Immersion’ and ‘Presence’, which for me are essential for VR, are also now confusing, so let’s start by defining some fundamental concepts. - Fred Brooks asking the question, IEEE VR 2010 - Definitions Reality We could start be defining reality. Presence Then let’s define presence. The place illusion (PI) implies that your perception is fooled. The plausibility illusion (Psi) implies that your cognition is fooled. Immersion Immersive VR
