    I don't know about the front of the Cog, but that's an interesting new idea. Any good views from the cog base or along the tracks?

    The quality of my Road Runner connection to the Internet has dropped to be very bad. There is way too much packet loss. It is effecting access to my cameras as well as VoIP from inside the house. I am about to go on the attack to get Road Runner to fix their quality problems. I had to do the same 2 years ago in NC and finally got it resolved there.

    [QUOTE=Brad]The key is to have a good cell signal - which does not happen on the Cog.[QUOTE]

    The cog railway would have to have repeaters along the tracks to keep a signal I would guess.

    I'm sure bandwidth would be an issue, but they seem to be very popular.
    The camera I use at my camp has a couple cool features. You can set restrictions for the general public whereas they have a few minutes of motion, then they get placed in a snapshot mode. You can also have defined users (with passwords) which are customized as to what functions they can control, when, and for how long. If you click on my camera in my sig you will get 10 minutes of motion, then you are sent into 3 second snaps. It has a 21X optical and 42X digi zoom.

    Would there be a place at Crawford Notch to mount a camera? One close up view could be the pond on the north side of the road. This would be a great spot to do a full motion video that changes to every 30 seconds refresh. We could watch that moose out there!

    Sorry to resurrect this dead thread, but I just got the new Windswept and there are two pages of new members. Very impressive.

    This is excellent. The MWO needs members and having so many higher paying ones coming on board is great to see. Thanks to all for your support for such a great organization.

    I don't mean to sound contrary, but you seem to have an excess amount of WIND POWER.... if you put a small wind turbine up there, you could power the whole region.... and a webcam.... heck, you could probably string up a wind speed meter to a small motor, and that could power quite a bit....

    Wind energy is the most powerful, easiest-to-harness source on the planet. Places like this could really help to take a bite out of oil consumption!

    Hope this doesn't offend anyone who wants to leave the land pristine, but in the larger sence, it would contribute to saving the planet...

    Cheers mates!

    This topic has been discussed pretty much to death in some of the other threads. But I'll take it up again. Mount Washington and the other high peaks in the region do have huge amounts of wind power, but they also have heavy riming and icing. A wind turbine would never last, trust me, its been tested. Also, the winds are too strong. You would never be able to build one to withstand the wind and produce a reasonable amount of electricity.

    A few turbines on NH peaks wouldn't take anything close to a bite out of oil consumption. A drop in the bucket isn't even a good cliche, more like a drop in the ocean. Wind makes big turbines spin, and sometimes it even looks pretty, but its nothing compared to the power of oil.

    On that end, NH is already helping to reduce oil consumption. A large portion of the population uses wood to heat their homes.
