Computer Dudes Roll Out - LPR Cameras and Automation for Video and Site Security in Small Cities and Rural Areas

on 16 Apr 2024  Posted by CorpRattX  Category: Technology  Comments: 0

After supporting global clients and friends through the recent crisis in the Middle East - Computer Dudes returns to Client Services and Security.

We will be installing our first low cost - 8MP Indoor / Outdoor Cameras.   They are set for HD video and sound day or night and in all weather.

LPN is License Plate Recognition - the cameras are programmed to record everything and to find and focus on people, animals, vehicles and their License Plates.
This is a major upgrade to all Camera Systems.

We are rolling this out in Smaller Cities and Rural Areas.     At a cost of about 20% of what others charge.   We are a service company.   Any hardware - once the need has been determined and plan approved by client - we set up for the client to order directly - which gives them the best warranty and support.

Computer Dudes also supports our products, services, research, programming and anything else we sell.   Generally 1 year or more support for free with contract, service, training or other purchase.
I will return and update this article soon with more details.

Be Prepared, Not Scared.   Share and be kind.   :)Todd

Evaluating the Meta Quest 3 and Other VR + Mixed Reality Headsets and Controllers

on 04 Mar 2024  Posted by CorpRattX  Category: Technology  Comments: 0

For the past 6 months to a year, The Computer Dudes, Inc and I have been doing heavy research and development on VR and Mixed Reality Headsets

We were among the first people and companies to have done research and development on this hardware and Software.   Computer Dudes does its own in house testing and evaluation which is our normal operating procedure

Evaluation:  Meta Quest 3

Pros:

Smallest VR / Mixed Reality Headset with multiple sensors and cameras.   The one we are using does Eye tracking.
Games are Fun - But Simple
Good for Research
Good for "Room" Creation
Works with Other Computers and Cell Phones   (see further discussion below "Cons" list

Cons:

Weight
Battery - Based on Use the Minimum Battery Life can be less than 1 hour
Size - far to large and cumbersome.
Heat
Not for use Outside - not weatherproof.   Probably not ready for Factory Floor
Fragile 
Speed
Avoid Humidity
Can Use a large chunk of bandwidth.

Conclusions:

So far - The Computer Dudes, Inc. and I can only recommend the Meta Quest 2 and 3 for home, recreation, and data center use.   We like of the games for they systems that help develop real life skills,
like working on your car, learning programming,  or learning photography.  

We also learned to "SideLoad" giving us access to all droid software and apps and addition to what Meta offers.

Soon: we will finish this evaluation of the Meta Quest 3.  Then we will  report on the Ray Ban Smart Glasses,  then maybe the Oculus 2.
We hope to test Apples Smart Glasses next.    We also want to test the HTC and Playstation 5 VR Mixed Reality.

Also, you can see photos of me, wearing the Meta Quest 3 headset - posted the on my LinkedIn profile: Todd W. Byars   :)

Computer Dudes initiate Drone Defense training.

on 14 Jan 2024  Posted by CorpRattX  Category: Technology  Comments: 9

We started our Drone Defense training course this morning with a one hour segment on Drones, Perimeters, Threat Vectors and Attack Vectors.   

This segment covers the basic of drones, their weak points, flight paths and attack vectors.     After a brief classroom segment we practiced personal drone defense inside 20 yards.

Then we discussed drone defense weapons, their weight, their ammo (if any) and how to use them at different ranges.    The group practiced defending against different flight and approach vectors and speeds.

We closed with a segment on safety, cleanup, and storage of equipment.    None of the Civilians who took the training had any experience with drones, or defense, or electronic warfare, or weapons.

The Computer Dudes, Inc in conjunction with Mac 1 Security hope to offer the whole course - including live shooting and wifi defense against drones and targets set to fly like attacking drones - starting in March of 2024.   We will post as soon as the class is ready and registration is open.

Drone Defense Training:
Segment One - Drone Size, Class, Identification and the "Ready" Stance - Ready to Listen, Ready to See, Ready to React
Segment Two - Drone Threat / Response by Distance, Bearing and Angle of Attack  -  Current "Layers" of Drone and or Air Defense
Segment Three - Defining your "personal defense zone" - from your person out to about 50 yards.
Segment Four - Tools and Weapons for Drone Defense - Comparison and Discussion 
Segment Five - Rifles, Pistols, Shotguns, Jammers and Electronic Drone "guns"
Segment Six - Shotgun and Pistol identification and practice on Paper Targets,  Practice with Laser Pointer on or in barrel.
Segment Seven - Hunting Birds and Hunting Drones - Similar Theory and Practice
Segment Eight - Shooting Skeet and "Moving Targets" out to 60+ Yards
Segment Nine - Drone Flight and Practice  -  Drone vs Drone simulation.
Segment Ten - Anti-Drone Ammunition, Non-Lethat Ammo, Carbon Ball Ammo, Salt Rock Ammo, 12 Gauge compared to .410
Segment Eleven - Shoot and Scoot!!   Electronics OFF..   Drone Avoidance. 
Segment Twelve - Open Practice according to student or group requests.

Everyone completing the course will receive a Certificate, some books and materials used during the course and a free sample of our new ammunitions.

We are looking at this being a 3 or 4 day event with social events and food from the area - including some of the game birds professionally prepared.

The area has normal Hotels or Historic Places one can choose to stay during the nights.     A number of the groups supporting this project will have many types of hunting, sporting goods, sporting wear, knives, tents, hiking gear, hunting gear and even hunting licenses.

Extra time with a professional trainer on the shooting part of this course, or of any other part of this course will be available during the course or for hire for private lessions.

Sincerely,

Todd W. Byars

Computer Dudes roll out License Plate Recognition, LPR, 8MP+ All weather day and night camera systems.

We are starting in the Smaller cities and Rural Areas where they have not even seen this technology.

Big cities and big companies as well as law enforcement and military already have such cameras.

Pricing to the public is INSANE so we found affordable - dependable versions of that type camera.

Todd :)

Well ISN'T that a Kick in the Pants.

Several of the fake profiles and criminal type hackers were identified and logged the last few days.

This morning - the company that employed them - SENT ME A HIRE REQUEST!!

Freaking Hilarious. They did their research yesterday - found out I really am heading to Washington DC and my contacts there.

BTW the hire request - got Ghosted.

Never contact or work for a dishonest company engaged in attacks on people for financial gain, fraud, or computer hacking.

Even if I did reply - the answer would have been NO.

This is one of the funniest things we have seen since before Computer Dudes became a company way back around 1997.

Still laughing. :)T

Big Changes Coming Soon - this will become an employee owned company.

My gift to you, the loyal, the kind, the strong, the brave - The Computer Dudes.

As you know our company has no debt and has never issued stock.

Just our holding will make the new owners wealthy - without issuing stock.

95% of the people reading this have no idea what that means for the employees and how it will increase their networth at the sign-over.

I will be around but I will also be traveling and taking some personal time to spend with friends and family.

If you work for Computer Dudes, and were loyal and kind, you are already wealthy.
