Webcam should be fixed

webcam.jpgFinally, I think we have a solution that will keep our Webcam in working order.   Whenever the camera has gone out in the past, I’ve trekked up to the rooftop of the Holiday Inn to turn it off, then on again.   And it would work for awhile, until it went on the fritz the next time. Well, someone (not me, I’m embarrassed to say) finally had the bright idea to install a timer on the Webcam.

The timer will shut the camera down in the wee hours of the night, then turn it back on again.   So, if it stops reporting during any given day, the automatic nightly reboot should put it back online.

I say should because we’ve tried many fixes in the past, and this Webcam has confounded us before. Let’s cross our collective fingers and hope this will be a lasting solution.

Thanks again for your patience!
