Life Is But A Stream

I made mention a couple days ago that my webcam hath risen. Little did I realize then that the latest EvoCam software upgrade I purchased includes a built-in Web server and the ability to stream video. So if you thought the stills of me sitting at my desk and typing were beyond exciting, then get a load of this before I take it down from crashing my computer or making it more susceptible to hacking and such.

UPDATE (06.24.06): Nah, after several days of tinkering, the only conclusions I’ve come to are I’m either too lame to figure it out, or it’s bullshit complicated to be figured out (perhaps a bit of both). The realtime video stream only works internally within the home network and isn’t visible from the outside. Dang.

UPDATE (06.25.06): Weeeeelllll, I just may have figured it out. Probably not, but one can dream, can’t one?

Presently he lives in Silver Lake with his wife Susan, their cat Rocky, dogs Terra and Hazel, and a red-eared slider turtle named Mater. Blogging since 2001, Will's web endeavors extend back to 1995 with, a comprehensive theater site that was well received but ever-short on capital (or a business model). The pinnacle of his online success (which speaks volumes) arrived in 1997, when much to his surprise, a hobby site he'd built called VisuaL.A. was named "best website" in Los Angeles magazine's annual "Best of L.A." issue. He enjoys experiencing (and writing about) pretty much anything creative, explorational and/or adventurous, loves his ebike, is a better tennis player than he is horr golfer, and a lover of all creatures great and small -- emphasis on "all."
