Camera Status - Fundraiser


Update - 4/10/2015 - 20:00 == You folks never cease to amaze me.  In eight hours we raised the $500 for this project.  Next week I will be scheduling a technician and will keep you posted on the progress.
Thanks again!

--------------------------
The cameras at the Maritime Visitor Center have been having quit a bit of pausing and stuttering this year.  I need the get this fixes, and have tried everything I know that might be causing the issue.

The next step is to hire someone to come in a look at the network and see what can be done to increase the speed so the streaming is not interrupted.

Our goal is to raise $500 in order to find out what can be done to improve performance.

Thanks for your help and patience on this issue.

  2. Yup, drives me crazy. I've tested and checked everything that I can. Now I need an expert network person to check things over.

  3. I have to believe, that there are enough watchers that might know of a certain individual that can fix these probs. with a phone call or two to you.

  4. That would be perfect, then I could save the camera funds for another project.

  5. It's just that we love the ships and you, Dennis, for all U do for us. We obviously, do not have access to the ships and Duluth, like U do. It's nice that we all have found each other. One man with a couple cameras and quite a number of folks outside of your area who all have one thing in common, boats.. We are just lucky to have found each other. Thanks Dennis.. Penny in IL

  6. I'll second Penny's comments. The ability to see and hear these boats as they come and go, watch the harbor at night, even that goofy seagull watching over things -- anyone can run a web cam, but it takes a true professional with a passion and commitment to do it as well as you do, Dennis. I am so grateful to be able to share it. Judy in La Crosse

  9. Hi Tim,
    The canal is kept at about 28 feet deep so ocean ships can pass.
