Lunchbox Challenge

For a Eureka moment, all one needs is a bit of silence and a focused mind.

Here we go... with my 3 "Els-cateers" all being in school having to pack an interesting lunchbox is quite a challenge, and one I am now planning to do (by way of delegation) with great gusto.  So this morning I embarked on making use of the WORLD WIDE WEB and in my Eureka moment and correct search phrases I found some wonderful and smashing Ideas.

Here is the plan:

  1. Make a list of Grouping of foods that a lunch box should contain
  2. Print clip art items to stick onto a magnet sheet
  3. Have the children pick out a day that they can choose what the lunchboxes will contain from each Food Group (by making use of the Clip art Magnets)
  4. Do the weekly shopping to accommodate the choices
  5. Have the Responsible child pack the lunchboxes for the following day.

The plan seems simple enough but it will probably need some refinement in it's execution :-)

Instead of republishing information which is already out there, at the bottom of the post are the links to the websites I have used to compile my information.  (If you would like me to forward you my End Results -> please email me or contact me through the blog)

My plans are to do posts on the successes and "potholes-to-avoid ". So do come and check in on the progress made.

Bye for now!

Double Bunk in Caravan

With our family expanding, we faced a challenge of adding another berth in our caravan, but I did not want to make it permanent. A couple of options are available, of which one is simply to add a bunk to the single berth. We however did not want to cause any permanent markings on the interior of the caravan .

Netdata + SNMP + Mikrotik

Always wanted to see my Internet line usage as a gauge without having to log into the router. So today I configured SNMP in Netdata to collect from my Mikrotik router. /etc/netdata/node.d/snmp.conf: { "enable_autodetect": false, "update_every": 5, "max_request_size": 100, "servers": [ { "hostname": "", "community": "public", "update_every": 5, "max_request_size": 50, "options": { "timeout": 20 }, "charts": { "mikrotik1.cpu": { "title": "CPU ", "units": "percentage", "type": "line", "family": "cpu", "dimensions": { "used&

CasparCG Simple Playlist

It is possible to build a simple playlist as a rundown in the CasparCG client. It will very simply play each item after each other that are on the same layer. In this very simple post I show how to build such a playlist including the very important step of activating the OSC. The Open Sound Control (OSC) implementation is how the client knows what the server is doing and then being able to send new command back to the server when a piece of media has ended to trigger playback of the next piece. For more details on the OCS, please see
