    I finally put stills of the webcam up on my site.
    However, I think it will be short lived, my wife is majorly creeped out. I bought cam's about a year ago to do live conferencing with her and my daughter while travelling on business. 99% of the time, the cam was not in use, and every time I'd come home, the cam would be buried under the desk somewhere, she thinks people can hack them and create live feeds for themselves or something. I explained, look, we are behind a firewall (port blocking), windows IIS is off (so no webserver for windows, webserver is my unix box), if the light on the cam isn't on, nothing is using it, and some other homemade protections I've put in place.

    So, just to furthur her creepness, I just made the live cam page, and now she is, *almost* mad. I negotiated with her, and we decided it can stay up if I put it behind a password.
    But it's free access for now while it's in "testing" mode!!!!

    It'll probably be black during the night if the light isn't on in the Den. Haha, just like all webcams, well, almost all. The less than $100 ones anyway!

    Funny, my Wife and I met on Netmeeting in 1999!! We got to know each other with netcams and typed text, the dialup connections didn't like voice and video!!! There were a lot of "nice" people on Netmeeting back then. :D

    She went to bed.
    And, not that *I* judge your intentions, but that's exactly the type of request she is afraid of.

    Like I said, I've not doubts about your intentions.
    But If I went in the next room and said, "Hey......there's a guy who saw me on the webcam, and is requesting your presence"
    Guess what the response would be.

    I'm thinking point it at the window is enough...I'm done coding for the night....
