while sorting stuff in my home-office ("what? i still have that Windows 3.0 disks?") i found an old medion webcam.
i guess it was one of the first usb-webcams EVER … and perhaps it wasn’t too good for the lens that the cam was burried under some books and an audio-mixer for a year or so … after plugging it into my server it turns out that the image is quite unsharp 🙂
nevertheless i decided to place it on the window sill and integrate it as "effreticam" (wordplay … effretikon is the town where i live) in my homepage.
although the picture is fuzzy and blurred, you can at least see what weather it is over here and if there’s still snow on the ground (like now :))
