Technical Difficulties: This is Getting Monotonous

The webcam was offline today. Again.

For hours, probably, before I noticed was was going on. Or, rather, what wasn't.

At this point, I'm assuming operator error at my end.

Sorry about that!

And, more to the point: I intend to watch what I do online more closely. And, check the webcam's status more often.

Technical Difficulties

The webcam and my Internet connection were fine: but the computer I use picked up a rather nasty bit of adware this morning.

Sorry about that!

Before logging back into the service I use to bring you the streaming video, I needed to go through a rather long process of de-worming my system.

That's the bad news.

The good news is that the webcam's back, and should stay online.

Thank you for your patience!

Technical Difficulties

If you tried viewing this webcam earlier today, you may not have seen much. There seems to have been a service interruption - probably during the last few hours (evening, here in the Central time zone).

Sorry about that. I'm still not certain what happened, but I've re-set the software I use, and will be monitoring the situation.

Thanks for your patience!

Comments, Spam, and Having to Wait

Comments on this blog will be moderated from here on.

Partly to keep me from missing comments like the one left by someone who lived "just around the corner" from this webcam.

Sorry about that. I like to see the comments I make show up right away, and figure that you probably do, too.

On the other hand, I've been getting too much obscene spam: which I don't like to see, and figure you may not, either. Particularly if you understand the language it's written in.

I rambled on about this more, in another blog:

Back Online

The webcam's back. Good news.

Technical Difficulties

I can't seem to get a user's connection to Ustream, the service I use to get my webcam's streaming video online.

And now, the Ustream site seems to be offline.


Since I (desperately) need sleep, I'm signing off for now: and will try again in the morning. Later in the morning.
