    I've decided to put a web cam on the eggs. Feel free to check it out. Not much to see now, just want to make sure the feed is working.
    Let me know if you have a problem seeing it.

    And come back around the 28th.

    So far so good. It's on a wireless connection so it can lose signal periodically. I'll put it back up in the morning and see if it will work all day.

    No, its simple if you have the camera. Just make an account with the site I'm using "ustream". Its free. Then create a show and broadcast it.
    Try it out, let me know if you have any trouble.

    Thank you for replying. I've been studying the sight since I ask. Looks interesting. I do have a webcam in my office room where the incubator is. I'm going to check this out tomorrow and see what I can do. Now if the cord will stretch to the incubator I'll be lucky. Sounds like it will be fun!

    I'm gonna leave it up today just to make sure everything works. Your feed looks good.
    I'll bring it back on the 26th after "lockdown". Not much to see right now.
