Foscam Night Vision

Daytime shot.
The Foscam FI8905W is an inexpensive outdoor IP camera with night vision.  These shots were taken vi the site.  You can learn how to use this Foscam with, (a cloud based IP camera monitoring service) by reading How To Configure a Foscam FI8905w.  The drawback to this camera is that the colors are slightly off when viewing it in the daytime.

Pitch dark shot.

Blush Yogurt Camera

The Blush Organic Yogurt shop around the corner from the office in Burlingame now has a camera. This is a D-Link DCS-930L, which is pretty easy to setup.

Miami Beach Camera

We had a nice trip to Miami Beach over Spring Break.  I took a DCS-932L with me and set it up near the water.  One of the fun clips I found was this one.  Ah, fond memories!

Innovator: Adam Beguelin

Business Week just did a really nice article on me.  We have a lot of cameras around the office, so some of the more interesting ones made it into the photo shoot.

If you have an IP camera, check out for all your camera monitoring and socializing needs.

Capistrano and awk

I was trying to use the cap invoke pattern and couldn't get it to work with awk.

$ cap HOSTS=user@server invoke COMMAND="awk '/PORT/ {print $8}' /var/log/ftp.log"

Turns out you need to escape the $8. The correct form is:

$ cap HOSTS=user@server invoke COMMAND="awk '/PORT/ {print \$8}' /var/log/ftp.log"

Note the backslash before the dollar sign. Even though there are quotes, the $8 get's lost somewhere along the line.

In the first case cap output looks like this:
* executing "awk '/PORT/ {print }' /var/log/ftpd.log "

and in the second case:
* executing "awk '/PORT/ {print $8}' /var/log/ftpd.log "

Hope this helps!
