Knocked Out

A power outage last week took out the cameras.  I have been pressed into service in a couple of out of town settings and did not check out what was working and broken until yesterday.  The router in the the middle of the whole network is broken and in transit to be replaced.  I will see if I can reset the cameras at some point. It could be Wednesday as school has first dibs on my time until then.

I have been able to get on all three cameras from school until today.  I am hearing that others are having problems and will do what I can to take the work out of the process.

A reminder:  The Scituate Historical Society will hold its annual sale on Saturday November 29, 2014 from Noon to 4:00 at the Maritme and Irish Mossing Museum. Author Ted Clarke will be signing his books. Swing by and pick up an offbeat gift for a history buff.

View from the Top is back (Maybe)


The cameras are live though I have had trouble getting them from time to time with all three browsers I have tried.  At school I have all three without a hitch.  Here at home, it has been hit or miss.  This is a shot taken with Lighthouse01 this morning.  Lots of wind and a moderately high tide combine in this picture.

The panning camera requires a user name (history) and a password (scituate). I find that it works best with Firefox or Chrome.  The other two cameras work best with Firefox.  If you use Chrome try to add the extension that mimics Internet Explorer.  If you use Internet Explorer, check your settings for compatibility mode.  I found that brought them in for me.

I am working on getting them to record and when I do I will put some of the recordings up.  I had hoped to have a much improved camera but that opportunity looks like it has gone by the boards. With some patience maybe the chance will come around again.

Redecorating the Blog

From time to time I get the urge to redecorate. My family knows this about me. I look around and I decide it is time for a change. The blo...
