Technical Difficulties: Well, That was Odd

I'm back on - after trying one more time: and logging in twice, once from one page on the Ustream site, once from another.

I hope this is a temporary glitch.

Technical Difficulties: Again; Still

I can't log into Ustream, the service I use to provide live streaming video from my webcam. Or, I can log in - and as soon as I get to the screen where I start 'broadcasting,' I'm sent to a login screen again.

I rather hope that Ustream is able to get control of its system again.

I'll try again, after daylight.

A Few Changes: Make that "Improvements"

I've edited this blog's introduction, but mostly I've added a page of video clips from this webcam.

The whole point of a webcam is to provide live streaming video: but that's not always possible. Besides, at night there really isn't all that much to see.

Technical Difficulties - Good News, For Now

Good news: is back online.

Technical Difficulties: Ustream's 'Off the Air'

Sorry:, the service I've used to get this webcam online, is 'off the air.'

There's an 'under construction' page where their domain used to be.

Oh, well: it was good while it lasted.

I'll be looking for a replacement: in the meantime, please be patient.

Back to Business as Usual: Almost

My neighbors are still getting their home fixed, from that fire. S. B. Restoration Services is back today: along with Klein Electric.

I turned the webcam back toward the edge of Ash Street and South Ninth, since the restoration work has moved inside.

On an unrelated topic: School started on Tuesday of this week, so there's a torrent of teens and elementary students going past each weekday afternoon, around 3:00.

Fire Next Door: Fixing the Damage Day 3, Done for Now?

I haven't noticed any work going on across the street since yesterday afternoon. If that means the job's done for them, fixing up after the fire: good news.

So, I've swung the webcam back, to look at the hummingbird feeder, bird bath, and part of the corner of South Ash Street and 9th.

Fire Next Door: Fixing the Damage Day 2

Most of the work is getting done inside today. They've set up a woodworking bench in the driveway, at the picture's right side.

Fire Next Door: Fixing the Damage

My neighbors, across the street north, have been doing a lot of work on their house: new siding, and probably more maintenance on the inside.

Then, Friday afternoon, part of it caught fire. Starting this week, I've been seeing another set of panel trucks and SUVs parked across the street - they're obviously having damage from the fire repaired.

A few minutes ago, my wife pointed out that I could turn my webcam a little, and show what was going on. While experiencing that 'why didn't I think of that?!' feeling, I did so - and will be showing the worksite until they've wrapped things up.
