Camera Trouble

September 15, 2010

If you're a regular user of the Live Webcam you'll notice that it's access has been intermittent of late.

Whether it's due to the windy conditions of a week or so back or just the fact that it's been out in the elements for a number of years it appears as though some major work will need to be done to get it back online.

** Some further investigation has revealed that the cable extending to the camera needs replacing. This will be done ASAP.
