Phil:

Sorry about that :oops: I have to post Tralfaz's schedule on the site so that people know when they can tune in. The webcam is on 24/7, but the lights on Tralfaz's tank are only on from about 9 am to 9 pm (eastern time). So when you check in after the lights have gone out all you see is a black square.

Oh yeah, I have added to the webcam archives and some more photos of Tralfaz.

I also built a little stand out of acrylic for the Tralfazcam so that I can move it around the tank at will.

George,

Love the Tralfaz Cam. Since you're clearly handy with acrylic, I wonder if you've experimented with a submersible housing for the webcam?

I hope you'll keep the whale-songs: they scared the crap out of my cats.

Looking forward to seeing Tralfaz do his thing.

WARNING:
I think Clem just wants to know if Tralfaz will used his beak or radula to open a webcam-clam toy - if you try I hope it has a good close focus!
Wires could also be short-circuited by water or beast (lethally?) AND they are made of copper.

Um, no.

Really? There goes my Shower-Toaster patent.

Whether George tries it or not, it would be quite simple to construct a safe, water-tight and octo-proof housing for a web-cam. (I'll send you a sketch for one, if you like.) I'm sure Tralfaz appreciates your concerns, though.

:roll:

Ha!
I saw him in the corner and then he was gone on the next image, just a couple of tentacles! I thought he was very cute, and much, much more interesting than my goldfish.

if you want to see something really interesting, drop your goldfish in his tank. . . . . :shock:

Hey All:

Steve, I am using software called PRYME. I takes the photo, saves a copy to a log (thus the archives are possible) and uploads a copy to my website server. The best thing about this program is that it is freeware. You can find a copy here http://www.hilo.dk/pryme/

Also wanted to let everyone know that I have updated Tralfazworld.com It is not 100 percent complete yet, but it is getting close. Again, any suggestions would be appreciated.

George

great idea

LOL, i was dumb enough to do this at 12:30 am, and not see nothing but some darkness, but its still a good idea, if only i could think of a way to get my webcam all the way to the fish tank (a extreamly long way, not to mention on different floors).
