Ustream: Good News, Bad News

The Ustream service that I've been using for this webcam is brings with it good news, and bad news.

Good news: I've got control of when the webcam broadcasts. It won't start showing its two pictures a second until I got through a multi-step process.

Bad news: I've got control of when the webcam broadcasts. It won't start showing its two pictures a second until I got through a multi-step process.

Like today: I'd left the computer - and the webcam - on overnight, to let my antivirus software get a scan done. As usual, this morning I found no outstanding issues with malware: and a computer that was getting low on available resources.

No problem. I took the webcam offline, restarted the computer, and started catching up on the day's tasks. I'd overslept, you see.

I also forgot to get the webcam started again. I noticed, several hours later.

Embarrassing. And, for anybody wanting to see the corner of 9th and South Ash in Sauk Centre: frustrating.

Sorry about that.
