I can't believe I did this...I know nothing of web publishing or networking, but...I couldn't shake the notion that I wanted a webcam on my tank, so friends could see my octo, Gollum, "live" even without beeing here.
Well...it worked! With little effort, I have a webcam aimed at my tank uploading photos to my crude and utterly simplistic site! It may make any self-respecting webmaster cry, and the camera may yet require some troubleshooting and tweaking, but it's my first site... :D
Now, of course Gollum is perhaps the most timid octo I've ever heard of. In fact I haven't seen him in over 3 weeks. :? So you probably won't actually see him. And his lighting cycle is roughly 6pm to 2am Illinois (Central) time, so you can't see anything much of the day. But it (usually) really does work! :D
