    Jacqueline let me know that their is currently static on the cam feed - sorry about that, I'll try and fix it when I get home.

    The audio can be a bit picky about where it's positioned so I'll have a mess with it tonight and see if I can get it crystal clear.

    Anyway, sorry for that, hope it's not been like that for long!

    Seems fine tonight. Thanks Neil! It's a pity I'm 5 hrs behind you all as the only time I'll get to see the birds besides the weekend is when I get home from work which is about your time 9:45 pm. I'll miss their cluckings! ;-)

    The static now is because the camera is being moved, if anybody was wondering. It sounds like you're stood next to a waterfall :-\

    ahh.. relaxing... (or more likely make you want to go pee)

    It was because the current cam's wire goes through our house window-frame (don't tell Helen!), then into the shed through a hole above the door, then out the other side through a hole in the side, and then finally into the coop.

    I needed to get the wire from the cam back out of the shed so it would reach the chicks, but there was a thick power cable sharing the hole which meant the cam plug wouldn't go through, so I had to remove all the power plugs, thread the wire through, then wire the plugs up again - a PAIN!

    Hope the new view is worth it :)

    It would be nice if we could have both chicks and grown hens on the cam together...

    Really? Hmm... in order of useless techy advice:

    1) refresh the page
    2) close the browser, re-open it and try again
    3) restart the computer
    4) try a different browser
    5) reinstall the video plugin thingy, then try again

    one of them should do the trick! (perhaps the next step is kick pc or throw from nearest windows - I hate computers!)

    I love pooters. They are fantastic!!!!
    Wish they had been around in my younger years, how much wiser I would be now.

    I sometimes ruminate on what could possibly come next!

    They are currently working on one that you can wear in your eye like a contact lens, Ollie.

    Is anyone working on a pooter that does what you want it to? I realise (my bro tells me at length) that I tell it to do the wrong things, so I need a pooter that does what I WANT it to. Like bidding on eBay at the last minute when I have to go out, or TELLING me when people are online that I want to talk to as opposed to 'yes, they were there 3 hours ago. You were looking at piano prices in Abu Dhabi, and I didn't like to disturb you...'

    Hey Neil, I think your camera fell over. ;-) Probably a curious chicken got up early this morning and toppled it. I am getting ready to go to bed and it's your time 5:30 a.m. It sounds like some animals are up!

    I'm going to be trying a new mic hopefully at the weekend to see if it improves the sound quality - I'll post when it's "on" so you can compare :)

    With a bit of butchering of an audio lead and a £2.49 mic I can hopefully get the sound working a bit better...

    I underestimated slightly... it's £4 and then the price of cabling... it could reach double-figures lol!

    Hope it's worth it - would be nice to have better quality audio...

    Yes, next time you hatch some eggies, we'll be able to hear EVERY word that you say. But not to Red, obviously, as you only communicate by emu...;)
