Crew Conversation: Saving Money by Buying a 3D Printer

Could spending money on a 3D printer actually save us money? Robbie talks about how through the pandemic and moving to a new studio, he's starting to see a trend: Many of the things he needs to buy are well over-priced, and if he only had a 3D printer, he could [probably] make it himself. He has a clever strategy that ensures he can make it past the learning curve without actually spending any money at all.

Crew Conversation: A DIY Pan-Tilt Idea for Raspberry Pi HQ Camera Using DMX Lighting

DJ Lighting kits are available for cheap. They use the DMX (Digital Multiplex) protocol to control lighting and motors. A pan/tilt light can be bought for roughly $90. So Robbie contemplates whether 3D printing a revised faceplate for that light would allow him to embed a Raspberry Pi HQ Camera, providing a high quality pan/tilt camera that could be controlled from the DMX board.

If You Subscribed to LinuxTechShow, What Happens Next Is On You

Robbie accidentally challenged viewers to hit 25,000 subs on YouTube, and they not only did it, but surpassed it. Now, honor-bound to learn and perform a fancy dance, the choreographer has him learning the moves. It should be noted: He's a computer geek, not a dancer.

(6) Updating the Firmware on a MikroTik Router

We all know that keeping our software up to date is important. Security exploits can be discovered, new features created, and bugs patched. As important as these software updates are, we may neglect our hardware devices since we tend to think of them as appliances whose update processes are onerous and time consuming. By contrast, MikroTik has made the process of updating your router super-simple. With just a few mouse clicks, you'll have the latest and greatest firmware installed and running on your MikroTik device.

(7) Static IP Reservations in MikroTik DHCP Server

Using the DHCP server built into your MikroTik router, you can specify static IP reservations which will always be served to specific devices. This is ideal for adding printers or servers to your network in such a way that their IP address always remains the same. The process is simple, and Robbie will demonstrate how to convert a dynamic IP address to static, and then how to modify it to set it to your own chosen IP address, if desired.
