PuppyCam is back!

September 21, 2004 | Dogs

The PuppyCam is back up. Fortunately, there was no damage to the camera so it is functioning perfectly.

They’ve been given the run of the house while we’re away. They let themselves out the doggy door so we can trust them not to poop in the house. At least, we hope we can…

The cam will shut off at 5:00 MST, about when we get home from work, so, sorry, no watching us… just the pups.

**EDIT: seems that keeping it up and running may be a more interesting feat than I thought. I have to find a way to get the webserver closer to the camera so I don’t lock down another computer to running the puppycam.

  • Well, it was gone for a while, but the problem was operator error.

    When I had it hooked up to the old iBook (this server) I had the app set to launch automatically on startup. But when I moved the puppycam to the new iBook because it has wireless I forgot to turn off the old one.

    Hence the “no image source” images – this server was overriding the remote iBook.

    Problem solved, there will hopefully be no more snafus in Puppycam.
