Lemming Tracks: New Computer!

My son-in-law got my wife a climbing wall for Christmas - and a new computer for me.

Whee! My wife's in the basement right now - from the sounds of it, probably skittering across the wall. There's a lot of laughter coming up the stairs.

Climbing wall? Basement?? With seven-foot ceilings, it's more of a horizontal than a vertical climb.

The new computer is - a whole lot better than what I was working with. Which was a custom-made job, and quite powerful. Five years ago. When it comes to information technology, a whole lot happens in five years.

The big deal, at the moment, is that the old computer is awaiting a new assignment: and the new one is now on speaking terms with my webcam.

The video feed of which is displayed at Small Town America: Minnesota, "Sauk Centre, Minnesota: near the corner of Ash Street and South 9th."

If you follow that link and don't find live video: remember, I'm in the Central time zone, near the middle of the North American continent. And it's winter.

Under normal conditions, I have the webcam offline for a few hours each evening.

Right now, with a new computer, it's not 'normal conditions,' so I may have run into another, ah, situation.
