Jack is working on it, there might be a problem with camera. That camera is 7 years old, hopefully, I don't have to go by another one.

I thought that I'd post an update to the webcam.

I will try to put up images that show that the camera is down today sometime.

The camera is being fixed by Sony (Laredo, TX of all places). The lens block had to be replaced. We have received donations to account for almost $300 of the approximately $400 needed for the repairs and shipping costs. I hope to have the webcam back online in a few weeks.

Thanks to everyone for your help,

Jack

Thanks for the update.
Could you remind us your paypal account so that we can contribute for the remaining repair cost?

Just curious how much the camera was originally (7-year old tech) and how much a newer one would cost, compared to the somewhat high (?) repair cost. I'm sure you thought of this already, but I thought I'd ask...

The panoramic is back. Hopefully the fine tuning will be completed soon. :)

Would someone please post the URL for the 3rd cam(s)? I don't see it on Ollie's 'Cams' page (yet).

Thanks,
