Ain't technology fun?
|Last major update this page: 7/10/2005||I had a four-hour delivery window for the PODS and wanted
to be aware when he came to be sure he didn't just drop it on the front
lawn. But, of course, I can't be watching street the whole time, can I?
Right in the middle of the delivery window I needed to be on a conference
call and have access to my computer.
Baby monitor time. I put my laptop with its webcam in the front window and could then monitor the street from my desk.
That worked fine until, right in the middle of the conference call, the power blinked for several seconds. All the computers had battery backup power supplies and kept on going. Except, my router wasn't on a battery so the blink broke the connection that would have to be reinitalized from the other room.
