The OBS camera images are being archived (since May 13, 2012) and are available here:
http://webhostri.com/MWO/

This is a private site and is not connected with the OBS in any way. The images are the property of the OBS and hopefully they will grant permission to display them, just as they did for Brad. This is a temporary setup to attempt to continue the good work started and maintained by Brad Bradstreet.

Questions:

# Is there any interest in continuting the archive?

# Is there anyone with server space that would like to take over and continue this archive?

For the techies:
This is now hosted on a VPS with limited disk space. The images are gathered from the MWO website using a PHP script and WGET running as a CRON job. Each script (1 for each camera) runs 1 minute apart, every 15 minutes. The Linux server software is free software that has been highly modified and creates the thumbnails "on the fly". Each month a CRON job creates a new directory for the month and subdirectories for each camera. The display software then "sees" the months an adds them to the display menu.

All information, modified software, and images will be available to anyone that would like to continue this project.
