Anyone have a high quality USB webcam they can loan?

I've got a Windows XP laptop w/ 5 hour battery and AT&T 881 Aircard to broadcast Tim's Memorial over the internet with but need the webcam piece to make it happen (if I could afford to purchase one I would).

If so, please email me at wellerphotography at gmail dot com to make arrangements to ship.

Thx

EXCELLENT job, Richard!

We're good to go on the webcast piece and Richard will be setting up the link on Tim's http://TwoWheelNut.com website for everyone who can't make it out.

Any chance that someone is going to capture that stream for viewing at a later time?

(I'll be there, but I'd still like to see the footage later if possible)

Good job on setting that up. good.gif

Yes, there is an option to record the broadcast for later viewing on the internet. Richard is also going to record to tape with his camcorder so there will be a high resolution copy as well.

Life, is not meant to be a journey to the grave, with the intention of arriving safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out and loudly proclaiming, "-WOW- What a Ride!"

Everyone...

PLEASE go back to my original post and double-check the route. It seems Google maps made a slight change to make the ride quicker on the return trip.

The ride is basicaly the same up and back with just one small detour on the way up. I am sorry about the mix-up and I hope it doesn't cause any major grief. unsure.gif

DuffDude -
When you say 'original post' do you mean the first post on this thread posted by Iggie? Is that route now correct? If not, please provide linky for us easily confused types.

I wouldn't change a fucking thing; I've lived hard, played hard, and I ain't done yet. I've paid some severe penalties along the way, but the rewards have been so much greater; even if for just have participating in the game of life with utmost abandon.

OK, Iggy's link is still incorrect. Below it are the "Details" and that link goes to my post, which has been corrected.

To help anyone who is still confused, THIS LINK has the corrected route.

in short, there is NO hwy 101 riding on this route. We will meet the 101 at each end, but not ride it.

Sorry about the confusion. unsure.gif

It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.

Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.

NO!!!

Go read this link.

The directions are revised and eliminate the Hwy 101 portion.

I have a new Verizon phone running Windows Mobile (Smartphone). One of the features is the ability to use it like a modem via USB connection. It requires installation of some software on the PC (VZaccess I think is the name of the software). I have NEVER tried to use this feature. I have no idea how fast it is or how reliable. I'm willing to try if ya'll don't come up with a known-good solution to this problem.

I'll have the USB cable and phone with me. I'll be in sometime late Friday evening (probably after 9pm for sure).
Staying at Holiday Inn.

**** EDIT ****
My upload speed isn't sufficient for the streaming...

Anyone else?

Anyone at all??

Nevermind. Typical upload speeds are between 60K and 80K. Not gonna work. Sorry 'bout that. (It also turns out that this service isn't part of my "unlimited data" plan).

A last gasp attempt..

I'll bring my wireless router, cables, and other shit.
Maybe we can tap into the churches wired line, set up a wireless connection and go from there.
This is really looking bleak, but I'm not giving up yet.

Edit - Fairlaner, we can at least video the service and Utube it later? Hopefully?
