23:34 Another fleeting visit, all of about 10 seconds, before leaving again!
23:40 All quiet. Goodnight
One staue in position ....
Good morning, Kate :)
7:54 It came into the box. Unringed BO that made very exaggerated head movements.
8:09 Mrs CBO flew onto the tray
8:10 Mrs CBO joined him and there were some sweet 'trilling' sounds

Huh! See what I've got, dang disgrace, see timeline for length of freezes between auto-refreshes. (But note the sound, VLC had kept going for a long time, wow!)
I got some nice little recordings from VLC just now, eg when one left the box, but had forgotten to change the output folder since new laptop, so VLC couldn't find anywhere to save, so they're lost lord-knows-where.

In reply to scylla:
Could I have an update on your cam performances, please? Mine are in almost constant buffer, with VLC doing a little better. It really is a total waste of the netbook, I should focus it on something else - what do you think about me trying the OKC GHOWs on it? See if it's strong enough to cope? It should be much more reliable than downloading.
If/when MrsCBO looks like laying, then maybe have a re-think?
Wuddee think fowlks?
I am still resetting every few seconds after freezes.
I sent Matt an e, mail but he will not be in until next week, whether he can reset we shall have to see.
I am happy with whatever you and others, decide. How difficult will OKC be for you now that it is using You Tube?
You know I appreciate all you do for us.X

I was thrilled to bits to get nearly 6 hours downloaded last night/this morning, but since they rebooted I seem to be getting 2-hour recordings, not the live stream.
I'm going to set up the netbook for OKC and see how it goes, surely I'm doing no good with the CBOs and OKC can't get any worse!
(The reason for these problems is that I set everything up to be automated, but CBOs cams and the OKC downloads need to be watched every dang second.)
