testing, testing, testing

because I wanted to support blogger and in hopes that I’d get more stable service I decided to sign up for Blogger Pro. The server is definitely faster and there are some interesting in-line editing options. For example, here’s a picture from a few days ago of myself and Ken on the top of Kodak Tower setting up the birdcam. This was inserted to the blog using the upload file tool which FTP’d the files and generated the HTML and everything. (Yeah I know it probably would have been quicker for me to do it by hand… it’s still cool… don’t rain on my BloggerPro parade!). Without further adu some birdcam pics:

This is from late last week. I was just clearing some gunk off the perch and wishing I had brought my clip on sunglasses (*squint* *squint*). In the background you can see the lot where I park my car and two of the Birdcam cameras. The large unit to the right is the one that we were up there to work on.

What a difference a week makes. This was Monday, during the snow. Kenn were putting the camera back up after we had taken it down to repair it. I’m wearing the super cool (and warm hat) that Jenny made me for Christmas!

Now I’m tightening the bolts on that camera. What you can’t tell is that I’m extended over the railing (an below that empty space) to do that. I guess my fear of heights is finally under control.

Here’s a view from one of the other cameras of my cool new hat as I continue to tighten bolts.

Kenn and I confirm that everything is in the correct position.

While I wait for confirmation that the unit is transmitting, I snap a last minute movie of the nest using my MC3. Note that I remembered to wear my sunglasses in order to maximize my looking cool cool and minimize the amount of glare (’cause there is oh so much of it during a snowstorm).

author’s note: Ok, while the upload feature is pretty cool, the grammer checker leaves a lot to be desired.
