Yup, lava is dropping into the valley.
OK, the next release of Quake Data is ready. Version 3.5.0 Build 39
When you have downloaded and installed the new program, then IF you trust me,
and unzip this file and double-click it. It will create a registry entry
for the Iceland cams at Vodaphone. All you need to do is to tell it where to store the files it downloads once you are in the program and then re-save
it ('Save Settings') to save the change.
Once you have installed the new program, then under the menu item Webs go to Volcanism Sites > Web Cams > Webcam Snagger
This is designed to take timed snaps of static cams so is good for Iceland, Old Faithful, Popacatapetl etc.
- You can set the lapse time for anything from 2 seconds to 2 hours (all in seconds)
- You can snap a picture at anytime, even if the timer is running.
- You can save and load settings
Last night when all the world and his dog were logged on to the Iceland cameras we could not get a picture here on the 'normal' web site, but this
dives straight into the server and gets the file. It is still subject to some delays, but it worked last night when we could get nothing on the
If you get an error (which may happen if it times out or goes over an hour boundary while waiting for a response) just click the snap now button and
see it it corrects.
The other thing that is new and included, and really is still under development, is the display of webicorders as a slide show. As I have rushed this
out for the cam snagger the plot section is not quite finished, but one of the menus does work which allows you to see a series of plots you have
saved as a slide show.
What I am working on is a side by side version of this, and one which goes off an gets the plots before displaying them, i.e. you don't have to save
If there is a problem please let me know as this was a bit of a rush job..The help has not been updated yet.
Coming soon - Did UFOs visit the area last night? I am getting the pics prepared soon.
