The webcam will be moved soon to the upper boathouse to avoid the ice that forms on the lower boathouse windows. But ice also forms on the windows in the uppoer boathouse, just not as often or for as long!
The webcam is a Logitech QuckCam Pro 9000. The webcam software is TinCam. Together, they cost less than $125. The camera connects to the computer through a USB connection. The computer is now about 10 years old and TinCam is the only application software running on it. The TinCam software sends (ftp) a captured image to the web server every three minutes. billhogsett.com is hosted by HostMonster which is in Utah. Everything works fine!
