Here are a couple of "interesting" shots from the 2003 christmas webcam such as Jon driving up and then waving to the webcam
There didn't seem to be that much "interesting" pop up this year, but I did
put togather an animated GIF that has the first 40 images after Slashdot hit.
Remember that there is a 5 second throttle that limits how fast changes in
the webcam position and/or light settings can be done (this is about as
fast as X10 can do things) ... so these 40 images were captured over a
4 minute interval, but after the first image, I set the animated GIF delay
to 0.5 seconds (the "hit rate" from Slashdot was about double this) - would be
pretty darn cool if X10 could operate this fast!
Note also that the GIF degrades the image quality from the actual JPEG's.
And you'll see some "random noise" frames - like most things in the
analog/real world, things don't always work correctly, and sometimes the
webcam just burps -

If you notice a christmas webcam picture that is truly cool/neat, send me an Email with an exact as time as possible (plus what was cool about it) and I'll look in the archives to see if it merits putting up here.
