Sorry folks, it's still down. Something to do with the router, probably. It's not just the CN webcam, it's also vendors who use the internet for payment processing.

We're going to try a mobile hotspot, see if that works. May be too slow..

Steph,
It's nice to see you walking in front of the camera anyway! :grin: Any chance the chat and sound will be available?

Thanks!

The link "NEAF 2012 Camera" is at the top of this, and all forum pages.

Webcam is working on my Android 4.03 tablet, but won't let me enter any text to chat.

Oh well, happy NEAF!

I caught three of the interviews today. Good work CNers!

Two of the items that I purchased yesterday in Suffern saw first light this afternoon.

I'm so glad y'all enjoyed the webcast this year!! :D We had a few technical difficulties, not all of which were our fault, and didn't get to do everything we've done in past years, but overall it went pretty darn good. We had some good interviews with interesting people for whom y'all had interesting questions, which is great.

So on behalf of the entire webcam crew (though without their knowledge :grin:), thanks again for joining us on the webcast for NEAF 2012, our 5th year on the air!!

Steph, No disrespect to the guys that filled in on cam duties while you took a well deserved break but IMHO there is 'Something Missing' when you are not there. It just didn't seem the same. I dunno exactly what it is, your wit and humour, the friendly greetings and banter with people as they log on. Whatever it is its just not the same when you are not on duty.

The day you stop attending Neaf and (wo)manning the cam will be a sad day indeed !
