we haven't decided on where to point it. I was thinking of a view of 10th towards 5th.

Personally, I think your viewers would MUCH prefer a view of my sweaty, hairy drunken form, rolling around drunk on the floor of the bar.

But hey, its not like I've got a vote in this...

Yet another reason to not work and just view this website all day long. Could be trouble - but fun!

Works for me; that way I can keep an eye on my dh until he heads home for the summer!

Jorge (a.k.a. "Georgie") has successfully purchased the network cable twice but (good on you, mate) each time it has had a connectivity problem (bad cable). So he sucks at that but we're hoping 'three times a lady.' Maybe today Georgie?

OK, we've got the installation location chosen and the camera is up. Now I have some 'behind-the-scene' geek stuff to put together, including getting yet another server setup, and we'll have this puppy live.

The frog should serve as a great meeting point for having your image captured and since our office is right next to it, you can stop by, say hi, and grab a link that will let you send email postcards of your image to your friends.

I think we can get a little better focus out of it yet, but here's an early sample

Right on! The sample looks good. Great job James. I can't wait to pose next to the frog with family in June.

If I still had my bicycle I wouldn't worry so much about leaving it in the bike rack with the camera aimed here.
