Spying on people with cameras

If you’re going to spy on your baby, this is great for audio, but this is crap for video.

I converted a webcam to see infrared light, and wrote how.

D is for Dillweed

I’ve been playing around with the D language a lot lately; it has a lot of really cool features. It also has a few rough spots, but one I just encountered that’s bafflingly horrible. This will illustrate:

uint u = 0;
int s = -1;
assert (u > s);  // assert will fail.  somebody shoot somebody.
assert ("string".length > -1);  // this one too, for the same reason.

Implicit type conversions cause more bugs than they’re worth, in general, but this is ridiculous.
