    @Charon92 I have already so many ideas. Don't really know I'm going to do them but it's a matter of time.

    @intromatt thanks a lot for the project ideas :D
    I had in mind kodi, aswell as owncloud :)

    I'm pondering getting one, but can I really plug a USB camera into it and get it to spit out being an IP or ONVIF camera down the network to another PC..

    The Pi has a camera connector. Buy a Pi camera...@Nanos

    @intromatt

    I already have USB cameras. :-)

    And the cable from the pi to its own camera, isn't long enough to stretch where I want it..

    Plus I want more than one camera. :-)

    I have awkward requests..

    All the books and magazines are invaluable , especially the 3 big projects books.

    Aha ahhhhhhh. That completely makes sense. Good luck on your project, dawg!! I working on a small camera project myself.. It involves a PiW and my cats. @Nanos

    Time is often a hurdle I find.

    Even time slicing my day, its hard to stay on track, as other urgent things pop up that need dealing with.

    I made PiBook.

    What did you first do?

    @Nanos some usb cameras work. I have a stone age one from Logitech that I got to work. You could also just buy a longer ribbon cable for the pi cam...

    Is it possible to make a cloud server of it? Or sftp? And use a big sd card for the servers space?

    @jakobev I've got one running owncloud. The RPi3 is fast enough for most things imho.

    Yes. You can even build a cool project cluster with a bunch of Pis. Underpowered, of course, but a fun learning platform. @jakobev

    @intromatt yeah its definitely a really good practice for everyone :)

    Plus if you know your Pi stuff it's a great icebreaker when picking up chicks at the bar. "Wanna swing by my apartment to check out my Pi projects and have a bubble bath?" - SWOON. @jakobev

    How long can it be ?

    I've a 50ft long parallel printer cable not doing anything..

    I think you would get signal loss with a long camera cable.

    50 foot parallel printer cable eh? Ahh the IT days of the late 1990s@Nanos

    @intromatt

    Back in the day when my PC was one side of my bedroom and the printer the other side. :-)

    Eventually solved the issue by building a printer table to go over the top of the PC monitor.

    @Nanos I can only confirm that about 1m still works. But then why not put the pi where your camera is? It's tiny.

    @superbadrobot

    Because there are lots of cameras, and I'd need lots of pi's, which would cost me a small fortune, which I don't have. :-)

    Most of them are outside too..

    Otherwise, I'd quite like that idea !
