I would recommend watching the Louis Vuitton Cup sailing races instead. Probably more exciting.
    I know what you are saying. I'm sure it won't have me captivated for hours but this camera thing is sort of new to me and I think it will be cool to pop in and check on the progress. If you would, please, turn on the two way mic if equipped so I can say, "ok, a little more to the left, yup right there, that looks good!"

    The camera does have the ability to have a mic and speakers. I am planning on setting up a mic - no speakers.

    That's a good idea, you don't need someone like me interupting your afternoon by blabbering. It would spoil the solitude!!

    I am not sure if the lakeside camera will be open to the public all the time. It depends on the uplink quality. The images sent to my photo site will be available for viewing. If we have better link quality and do not impact my wife's and my telephone, then I will be able to open it up.

    It sounds like you have DSL at the cabin? How can that affect the use of the telephone? I thought they were sort of seperate entities but then again my understanding is limited.

    I wanted to post an update to my mothball idea (to keep the spiders at bay). I placed several mothballs in the camera enclosure a few weeks ago. They indeed are keeping the spiders (and webs) out of the enclosure, but it seems they introduce a new problem. I now have some sort of crystalized growth on the glass dome. I've never seen anything like it before, so I am assuming it is some reaction to the chemicals in the mothballs. Any chemists out there?

    I read some articles where plastic reacts with mothballs, but I haven't read about mothballs reacting with glass.

    Well the naptha does evaporate to be effective, if this enclosure is outside and the glass dome is much colder than the rest of the enclosure, you may be getting condensation of the naptha on the interior. Is the enclosure temperature controlled? It may be as simple as cutting down on the number of mothballs that you put in there.

    I don't think glass reacts with anything. Like Patrad mentioned, it may be mineral condensation.

    I doubt the lens is glass. I know are plastic and can easily be scratched.

    We have cable connection. We have web cameras, computers, servers, and Voice over IP (VoIP) telephones. The VoIP services are sensitive to link quality more than speed. We have anywhere between 1 and 5 VoIP telephone connections at any one time.
