MacBook Pro and NEC 3d Projector

For a couple of years, I've been battling to get 3D projection to work well on a MacBook Pro.

I recently found a little application called Disable Monitor ( ). This little apps main purpose is to be able to switch monitors on and off on your Mac making the display card available for one screen at a time.

The added benefit is it gives you much better control over display sizes for each monitor.

Specifically for the NEC NP-V311W DLP 3D projector, I'm now able to set the HDMI to 1280x720x32@60 which is ideal for Half Over and Under ( H-OU ) content to render correctly in 16:9 aspect ratio.

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

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
