Security Camera Libraries

19 August 2012 - 04:58 AM

Hello all,

I want to write software that interfaces with security cameras (a friend of mine has a few older ones he's not using anymore). I've looked around a bit and downloaded OpenCV, but I'm not too sure how to go about interfacing with these types of cameras. All I really want to do is stream the footage to some physical storage device (HDD, SSD, etc.).

Any help would be great.

Paypal Php Integration Help

27 May 2012 - 05:32 PM

Hello all,

I want to integrate PayPal with my web application which I'm currently writing in PHP. Although I'm not there yet, I do want to know how to integrate via the PayPal API when I do get there.

I'm currently researching on the PayPal website and X.com; however, I wanted any other resources CodeCall members may have and and advice as well.

Thank you,

Removing Strings

12 May 2012 - 01:26 AM

Hello all,

I want to cut a string at the first occurrence of a period. Currently, I'm using substr_count to find out how many periods there are and using strstr to extract the characters prior to the first period; however, I want to take this string and remove it from the original string.

What functions should I be using to do so?

Thank you,

Chinese Satellite Hackers

31 March 2012 - 07:22 PM

Hello all,

I'm curious about an incident in 2007 and 2008 that involved Landsat 7 (the latest of the Landsat program) and Terra.

Allegedly, Chinese hackers gained control of Terra and only accessed Landsat 7 via ground stations outside of America.

So my question is, how would they connect to the satellites and what code would they be running?

No, I'm not trying to hack US satellites I was simply curious as to how they would have even managed such a thing in the first place.

Here are some news articles on the topic:

Writing a Distributed Filesystem in C++

15 February 2012 - 04:11 AM

Hello all,

I'm wanting to write a DFS in C++. I want to make it lightweight and scalable; however, I'm not sure how to write a filesystem (as in programming environment).

I assume this should be done on Linux? If so, what distro?

Also, I assume I'll be using GCC to build and such but I'm inexperienced when it comes to Linux and GCC.

Any help would be great.
