I was given another webcam for my cubicle. Currently I have four webcams pointed at various things. You can see them here: www.istroyworking.com

I don't know what to point this new one. Help me decide.

Poll: New Web Cam
Help me decide where to point my new webcam.
Where should I point it?
Out south window
At my crotch
On the other side of my desk looking to the right
My keyboard
The water cooler
The 'Office Fairy'
At another part of my desk
Profile of me
Looking up at me instead of straight on
At coworkers
At a wall
The ceiling
I could care less

Just a quick note telling you that your site is awesome.

Btw: I would suggest mounting the camera to a disco ball (are they called like this?). See this video to get an impression:

I am thoroughly disappointed in the Orchid cam.

Quick question - Where is the orchid? (regarding the title of the bottom right window's label "An orchid grows in Utah.") The bendy lamp is cute in a flirty "I am only peeking up from the edge of the picture" way, but it is not an orchid.

Suggestion for the camera - if you are in an office, at the door. That way someone looking at the webcam can send you a note (with the NEW! Send Troy A Message! feature) if a co-worker is coming your way. Or they can just count the co-workers as they pass by.

The orchid is at home getting re-potted. It had a hard time over the winter. It will be back in a day or two.

I want a virtual 'webcam' that follows whoever is currently most active on the minecraft server and shows what they are doing in minecraft!

That and since we can see the minecraft server log, I would love to be able to enter text on the server log, and have it appear as a message to the users playing on the server.

I assume you are the IT guy. If not, point it at the IT guy, to show the steam coming out his ears as he monitors the bandwidth usage!

When you create a mod to allow me to do this, then it will happen.

This I can do and has been on my mind for a while. Basically to send messages and see who's online.

Well, there is this, which looks cool:

http://www.minecraftdl.com/kaevators-cctv-video-camera-mod/

But that is in game. I did not read it all. There may be a way to do it as a webcam. Though the camera does not follow the player like I would hope.

This camera mod is unrelated, but awesome!
