Nelson Mandela Google Doodle


Today marks the birthday of the late Nelson Mandela. On this day everyone pays tribute and Google is doing this with the Doodle today. This one slide forms part of the slideshow.

Nelson Mandela was instrumental in the history of Mindset Network ( www.mindset.co.za ) as he opened the first television channel for us onto DSTV.

At this launch event he said:

"Education is the most powerful weapon we can use to change the world and Mindset Network is a powerful part of that world changing arsenal. I would now like to make a presentation to two very deserving schools. I will be presenting a Mindset Network receiving kit so that these schools will be able to receive the education channel Activate which currently runs twelve hours each day." - Nelson Mandela

Since then many more schools have access to Mindset Learn ( http://www.mindset.co.za/learn/ ) and the channel broadcasts 24/7/365.

We are proud of what we are doing, and I also want to say thank you to an iconic man.

Johan Els
COO & CTO

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:

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 http://casparcg.com/wiki/CasparCG_OSC_Protocol
