Technical Jokes and Cartoons – 109

Cartoon I Married my Wife

There was a poor old Irish cobbler whose shop was next door to a very upscale French restaurant.

Every day at lunchtime, Mike, the Irish gent, would go out the back of his shop and eat his soda bread and maybe a kipper or piece of Irish blue cheese while smelling the wonderful odors coming from the restaurant’s kitchen.

One morning, the Irishman was surprised to receive an invoice in the mail from the adjoining restaurant for “enjoyment of food.”

Alternative to Hikvision and other Banned IP Cameras

How to Select IP Cameras that NDAA Does Not Prohibit

Selecting Approved IP Cameras

In 2022, the US government banned Hikvision, Dahua, and other Chinese-manufactured cameras. Unfortunately, they do not meet the requirements established by the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) and can’t be sold to government agencies. Though this was a political move, it also recognized certain security risks associated with these cameras. Even though the Hikvision is no longer available, other camera manufacturers have equivalent cameras.

This article provides alternative cameras with even better performance and a lower price.

Cartoon-Sandwitch

A new camp commander was appointed and while inspecting the place, he saw 2 soldiers guarding a bench.
He went over there and asked them why they guard it.
“We don’t know. The last commander told us to do so, and so we did. It is some sort of regimental tradition!”
He searched for the last commander’s phone number and called him to ask him why did he want guards on this particular bench.
