Webcam, Software, and All That

I discovered that a new bit of software does not play well with my webcam. Actually, it's rather old software: but newly-installed on my computer.

This has happened before, so I know what is the easiest solution: Not run the two at the same time. That has the regrettable effect of taking the webcam offline for an hour or so on some days.

I'll try to have most of my planned outages in the evening, when there's not much to see.

Thanks in advance for your patience. Like everything else in this world, the present situation will change.

A Few Power Outages, a Brownout: Otherwise Okay

I hope that power is back to stay in my part of Sauk Centre's south side. We've had several power failures, and at least one brownout so far this morning.

My computer seems to be okay, and the webcam's working - so, unless or until something else happens: there should be a live feed from near the corner of Ash Street South and 9th.

That's the second time this month that we've had power problems. Oh, well.

Webcam's Back!

When I got home this evening, I discovered that there'd been a power outage in our part of Sauk Centre: a brief one.

That sort of thing happens now and then, and normally I'd check the webcam soon after the power came back on.

This time I couldn't, since I was out of town. Sorry about the interruption.

Good news: your look out the window at my corner of small town America is back online.

Bad news: it wasn't available for at least several hours today.

More good news: As far as I know, I won't be going anywhere for quite a while. Which is just as well. The last 10 days have been hectic, and that's another topic: for another blog.
