Maybe. Maybe not. I don't even if this board has a "stickies" option for the mods. At any rate, I thought a cool, continuing thread or stickie would be one in which FWB peoples around the world posted webcam images of their towns/ the weather in their towns. It'd be a cool way to tune into, at least a tiny bit, the world where other FWB'ers live.

I noticed, on another board, when I posted a piccie of the UofA webcam like this:

[img]webcam%20image%20address[/img]

--where webcam image address comes from right click on image, then "copy image address"--that the image updates with the latest webcam image whenever I goes to that thread.

So there.

At the risk of sounding obsequious, I whole heartedly endorse this idea.

Here's mine. This station is 2.7kms away from my home. A bit sheltered so the wind speeds are a bit low, but it's still a good a
site.

Well, sounding obsequious is much more appropriate than sounding obstinate, obstetric, obtuse, obsolete, or like obsidian.

Can that be turned towards the dorms so we can see student life close up? You know female students giving each other back rubs to relieve the stress of finals type stuff. :shock:
For my next trick I will set myself on fire!

Not so stupid...I like tuning in to the Glacier National Park webcams to lift my spirits from time to time. It's 4:30 am and I'm going out for a ride...the weather forecast for Phoenix? Hotter than a *&^$^%#&^! :(
I buy everything that JMT lists on this site.
