Living Room / Help needed recording streaming video.
« on: September 22, 2014, 08:41 AM »
hi all!

i'm working with a nursing home on a totally unrelated technical project
and got asked if there were a way to record a stream at this URL
and burn it to DVD.

i have very little experience doing this sort of thing. none really. is
there a how-to or good Youtube video somebody can point me to on how to
do this if it's too long to post? i tried looking at some video sites.
and doing some google-fu. but all the advice i've seen is either an ad
for a specific piece of comercial software or has a heavy emphasis on
'free' at the expense of reliability and convenience. it's ok if i need
to purchase software to do this easily. but i don't have the time to
start a science faire project right now. or spend a lot of time on it. i
suppose it would be easier just to say 'no' to the person who asked. but
this is for elderly shut-ins. so i can't just brush the question off.

are there any media geeks out there that can help me with this?

Developer's Corner / Recommend a general purpose IDE
« on: May 27, 2010, 09:37 AM »
i keep getting dragged into more and more coding projects where I work.

i'm proficient in python, and can do basic C++ and hold my own in most projects where PHP is involved.

up until now i've used whatever editor/IDE came with the package i was using. but now that it looks like i'm going to be doing more of this than i want to i'm in the market for a more general purpose tool.

what i'd like is something that can handle c++, php, python, and probably java with equal aplomb. I don't need extensive project management or version control features since most of what i get asked to do are simple ~ 100-line sysop utility programs and add-ons. folding is important to me because i often work on a small screen laptop. and multiplatform would be a major plus since i work on BSD and Windows workstations. having the same tool on both environments would simplify my life greatly.

i tried Eclipse but didn't really care for it. it seems to make everything more complicated than it needs to be. i'm not stupid. and i'm always willing to put the time into learning something useful. but using Eclipse almost feels like a job in itself. 

some people recommended i try NetBeans, which i haven't yet.

does anyone have some favorite ide they'd like to suggest?
