I wanted to let DME Resources members and visitors know that I will be performing various upgrades and updates this weekend and through the month of March, 2019.  At times, the DME Resources site may be temporarily unavailable, as a result. As always, I will do my best to minimize any interruption in services during this time. 

The upgrades and updates are in preparation for the migration to our subscription model, beginning on April 1, 2019.  As detailed in my member's area post, DME Resources will always provide a FREE/Basic level of subscription for our verified professional community members.  FREE/Basic verified members will still be able to share & connect with peers and help each other solve problems via many different features.

I sincerely appreciate everyone who has reached out offline to share their support of the community and new model.  I truly feel the new model will provide an even more active community and better resource for all, and I'm excited for our future.

It's my wedding anniversary today and I'm on vacation for it, so I probably should get off the PC. :) Have a great weekend and be safe out there my friends!

Today I posted a notice in the DME Resources member forums regarding implementation of an annual subscription fee for DME Resources Professional Community members.  Please take a moment to log-in and read this notice.  Additional information will be made available in the coming weeks.

Together we've literally expedited thousands of investigations throughout the world.   It is my hope that we can continue to do so, together, with your continued support of the DME Resources Professional Community after April 1, 2019.

It's really fascinating to look back at how far our discipline has come in the last 20 years, and how many resources and solutions are out there these days for Forensic Digital & Multimedia Analysts. Even more exciting is knowing some of the new opportunities and solutions for DME professionals that will be coming in 2019, especially in regards to training!

Lately I've been working on my employer's training schedule for 2019, and I couldn't be more excited. Ocean Systems will be introducing a new 3-Day Fundamentals course in 2019, in addition to several new remote training options to help those who simply cannot travel.

On top of that, I will begin offering on-site training services through my own personal company in 2019, and expect to announce my first class location & dates prior to Thanksgiving. I couldn't be happier about this folks, and hope I get a chance to see you in class in 2019! All the best my friends. - LC

I recently cut the cable TV cord with the assistance of the Tablo 4-Tuner OTA DVR, so I thought I'd share a few thoughts on it.

Over The Air (OTA) HDTV

First I'll point out that I don't watch a lot of TV, maybe a few hours a week; however, my family does, and likes to keep up with several TV shows. We've always been cable TV subscribers, both with Time Warner back on the East coast, and Comcast out here on the West coast. We've used the DVR hardware and services from each since they began offering the option(s).

Before dropping cable TV altogether, I purchased a few cheap HDTV antennas and checked out the local OTA offerings. We get 14 digital channels for free, including of course the major networks. Unfortunately, however, no channel guide. I knew this wouldn't fly with my better half, so I looked into options.

I don't often post about the work I do with Ocean Systems, but that doesn't mean I'm not really proud of it. Thought I'd share this recorded webinar to give you a peek at some of the things we've been up to. Embedded video after the break. Cheers my friends.
