R.I.P. Webcam (for now...)

The webcam on my HBTS Rexford St. Weather Underground setup is dead.

I don't think it's the webcam itself, it's most likely the laptop that was hosting the webcam.  That dastardly "kitchen laptop" that I've kept alive all. these. years.

Anyhoo, since the screen on the laptop isn't working, I have to plug it into our TV with a VGA cable to see what it's up to.  For all I know, it's probably some update to the software that I need to download or something like that.

I'll check it out later this week -- I've a bunch of odds and ends to tend to.  New license plate for the Prius (switching from Nebraska back to Florida), squaring away our Family Care Plan, and finally squaring away our claims from our move.

In the meantime, I've removed the blankness on the tag to the right so conserve a little space.

Well, you stretched that laptop as far as you could. It's been dying for what 3 years now? RIP.

Yes, it's been in some sort of life support since late 2007 :-)

We have another old laptop we can use instead. Need to talk to Dave about making the switch. All his PhD stuff is on it, need to ensure it's backed up appropriately.
