Halloween 2009

Halloween Decorations Webcam - view and control stuff! ;-)
After having a live webcam where people could view (and control!) my Halloween Decorations in 2005, I upp'ed the ante in 2006 with three Webcams ... plus Homer Simpson - D'OH! Notable subsequent additions were SpongeBob SquarePants in 2007 and several Grim Reapers in 2008. But there is always room for improvement, so here's some ideas for Halloween 2009 ... please comment on HULK's halloween blog with any of your ideas.

1. The Incredible Hulk.   The Big Green Guy will definitely be back with his twin brother!

2. More webcams.   There was one webcam in 2005 and three for 2006, 2007, & 2008 - should I do even more for halloween 2009?

3. Possible new bells & whistles with Webcam and Webcontrol.   The Webcam and WebControl (which allowed folks to not only view the lights in real-time, but also turn them ON and OFF) is a big hit, so I'm always curious to see what technologies come my way this year to see how they can be used.

4. Streaming video on webcam.   Related to point #3 above, I'd love to do streaming video rather than refreshed JPEG's.

5. More fund-raising.   It was not only fun raising money for celiac disease but it made me feel "good" ... so I'll be doing that again - total after Halloween/2008 was over $30,000 and consider donating now to the University of Maryland - every little bit helps.

6. Halloween 2010.   Yep - already thinking about that! ;-)

I'll be putting up my halloween decorations in late September/2009, so check back then to where you can view and control 'em via the halloween webcam - halloween 2009 will be even better!

New for Halloween 2009 - the Headless Horseman!!!
