    I don't know if ya'll have found this yet but cephschool (www.cephschool.utmb.edu) is a website done by the NRCC and UTMB. It is still in construction mode but there are a few things already up such as several live camera's in the NRCC tanks with nautilus, squid, cuttlefish and octopus. There is also lots of cephalopod info. It is a resource for kids (and adults) wanting to learn about cephalopods. Just giving a heads up. :smile:

    ....'squidcam' catching on ay wot! Hmmmmm. I'll have to do one better then! We're starting up YETIcam, SETIcam and UFOcam soon, in addition to PILLcam (where you can follow real-time the path of a squid through a sperm whale); then there'll be STEVEcam (a camera attached to my shoulder, so you can all see me sweating, screaming, beating students, yelling, hollering and doing my general day-to-day actvities).

    Looks like a great site in the developing!

    The STEVEcam might be interesting. We have had our cameras up for about a year the only problem is we are always moving animals around so sometimes you will be looking at a empty tank. But we can always say that in that tank are the new glass squid. :lol:

    I think that STEVEcam would be nice, but would it actually be placing Steve in a glass tank and pouring in shrimp when Steve feels hungry? :lol:

    Steve might prefer wine and squid. A tank isn't necessary if you're near the right restaurant. I think of all the cams, squid cam is the only one that will work up my appetite.

    I am going to put a web cam in the trees outside for a couple of days to monitor the movement of the elusive Pacific Tree Octopi. :mrgreen:

    Oii!! nobody is setting a camera near me! :mad:
    *ponders if the STEVEcam would be admissible in court....*
    Just thinking out loud :lol:

    To be on the safe side, I've just been looking around to check if there wasn't already a WETLABcam and a TPOTHCUBICLEcam.
    Cuz that'd explain why Master O always pops around when i'm not working :confused: (except that one time when i was actually working... must have been a fluke or something... sure did give him a scare... promised i won't do it again...)

    Crikeys...if they actually did a "SteveCam" we would have to watch him eat that pile of cr*p with the beans and all...probably with ND playing in the backround !!!!!

    Let's hope that SteveCAM fails if ND is really playing in the background

    Especially this weekend!

    ... And then there's 'DURDcam,' to record the doings of several members here (TPOTH & co) in the Department of Underwater Research Division or whatever I've just been told they're called. Tee-hee. :roll:

    Ain't no doings to record around here ;)
    As for the chosen acronym:
    Good thing some people decided to write something on the door...else we'd still be the students in that room at the end of the cridor... and imho SITRATEOTC is no better :P

    Hey, I'm quite happy being 'a nameless student at the end of the hall'.

    I'd be happier if we had a sign on the door saying 'beware of the Leopard'
