    Hi Ted,

    I'm a big fan of your work. The price is right for such a unique design and I'd take one. But it's basically for giggles ... I have 486 and Pentium machines around. A super fast PCjr...

    The moderation queue is generally checked at least once per day. Sometimes it gets missed by all of us. Please be patient, and after your 10th post you are no longer subject to the moderation queue.

    I looked at wired cameras using power over Ethernet and "smart" cameras that transmit on WiFi but use wired power. I went with Nest cameras, which generally have the features I want. Their cloud...
