Why not monitor the workstations directly?
I can't be in 15 places at once. And a screen recorder software won't help completely in this particular situation

BTW Its the first thing I've seen that actually doesn't stick to a non stick frying pan without any oil. But then again I don't cook too often

If I wanted cameras for 10-15 indoor workstations what type of system should I look into?

It would need to have a clear enough picture to read from a computer screen from roughly 10 feet away ( is that even possible?) and a wide field of vision.

I don't need storage for long, I'd say two days worth of recordings should be fine. It's just for looking back if a mistake is made to see what happened.

It can be a local system without remote viewing over the internet.

Preferably I wouldn't want to have to run wires I'd rather have it connect directly to the computers at the workstations and then somehow have it connected. (I think although I'm not certain that the computers are connected to each other somehow over a local intranet or something)

Or maybe if it's possible to have a dedicated router used to wirelessly connect all the cameras without it affecting the internet of the place.

Idk I'm just throwing out thoughts here. Any ideas would be appreciated.

A screen recorder won't help in this situation

Haha mayim chaim company forsure made their seltzer and soda more carbonated just for these guys by kiddushim
I've noticed that when pouring soda into a cup that had grape juice in it from Kiddush it makes the soda bubble up much more than regular. I've noticed this many times I don't know why it happens though.

We used to do this in my dirah:
Take a can of tuna in oil open, cover with 3 squares of TP (if you dont have you can use a napkin or paper towel) and light. It should burn for roughly half an hour and will result in smoked Tuna.

I recommend doing this on the marpeset as it may cause odors.
Israeli Yeshiva bochur version of grilled tuna. (Introduced by my son who picked up the recipe during the last zman).

Open a can of tuna in oil. Place a tissue or napkin flat on top. Make sure the part that is over the can gets soaked in oil. Set the napkin edges on fire, and wait until it burns out (or extinguish after about 30 minutes). Didn't sound very good at first, but it's actually surprisingly good.
This is a famous "lifehack" I've seen all over YouTube. The problem with it is that most cans have a plastic coating to prevent the metally taste which will melt into your food.

And the ones that are metal are usually galvanized which releases toxic stuff until it's burnt off.

Kach shomati (at least as far as I remember)

Cellphone neck mount, shoe snow spikes, portable electric sewing machine, NFC stickers, lock picking gun.

First off, if you think that people in our community, especially children and young adults, have enough of an understanding of money, finances, savings, and what it takes to make enough money to pay for the things they expect, then I think you are either an idiot or just woefully unaware of how people actually live.
Second of all, I wasn't advocating for financial literacy courses, that's a stupid idea that will teach a few guys in more modern yeshivos a little bit more about finances, that doesn't really solve anything. If you actually read all my posts from today you would have seen that I was saying that parents don't do enough of a job giving their kids an understanding of what it actually costs them to pay for the things they are coming to take for granted. And if you think there isn't a sense of entitlement among young people in our community, especially when it comes to paying for them to get married and start a life together, then I refer you back to paragraph one.
This point I might change my mind about and agree with you. Especially regarding the support part. When I said there's only embarrassment I had in mind specifically the wedding alone. You could been referring to other expenses (which was your whole point in a different comment). Yada yada. Ok fine skip this for now

But when I said financial literacy I was referring to what you meant about parents not explaining to their kids. That part I still don't understand.

Ok, I was being generous. Either you don't understand finances or you don't understand people, take your pick.
You're not giving a clear answer.

I'll answer it for you (or at least try to). All teaching "financial literacy" does is create a support group to counter the social pressure. It's not any sort of new understanding of finances that fixes the problem, because there isn't anything taught.

The fact that you don't understand is proof positive that people don't actually understand finances.

I think another root cause of the problem is less "keeping up with the Joneses" and more a lack of financial literacy in young adults. How many young people getting married have any sort of understanding about how much it really takes to make the kind of money that is being spent on them?...
I'm pretty sure this has been mentioned in a different thread a while ago. (Maybe it was should yeshivas teach financial literacy).
 I don't understand this whole thing about teaching financial literacy. Which person with any sense in their head doesn't understand that a dollar is a dollar. There's nothing to teach or understand.

And I'm not understanding the the idea that it's (also) the parents fault for raising kids a certain way that they feel entitled. There's no feeling of entitlement here, there's a feeling of embarrassment if it's not done.

LOL you have the same speed as my 400 megabyte plan.
 While I'm paying 90-plus bucks, you're paying 14.99.
You think this is a possibility?

Here’s an idea without making rules or make people feel that they're not invited.

Have weddings start earlier.

Let’s say 2:30pm start time, chuppah at 3:30pm. Invite everyone!!! Only people who really need to be there will find a way to come. Everyone else can come for a huge buffet and dancing at ~6 pm.

This will also solve the issue of weddings ending late at night…

I think they do this in England.

Hatchet by Gary Paulson

Didn't read it but listened to an audiobook of it on Libby. It's around 3 1/2 hours long. I think it's a book for younger people but I enjoyed it.

Does your family have official breakfast/lunch/supper where everyone comes and eats together at the same time (like a shabbos meal)?

Not in a family where the kids are young and will only eat if you feed them. I'm talking about when they're older and can eat or make food themselves.
