Post 1012: “Oh! I have a webcam that I can use to take photos!”

It isn’t a fix so much as another way to do the same thing. Yes, I can’t use an camera’s memory gizmo to put photos on my computer just now. But…! But I can use my webcam! It puts photos and videos in strange places, but I usually find them eventually, just as I did today.

I am reasonably smart, yet it took me several days to fugure out my Logitech webcam is a reasonable substitute for my camera till I get the computer drive F. fixed....! Hmmm.

For example, today Dougy was watching birds (pine siskins) outside the back window….

Intensely interesting stuff, Dougy thinks. Snack-sized!

He got a bit tired following all the action. You would, too!

In some respects, the webcam takes better photos than the camera. Bad light, for example, is less of an issue with the webcam. Happy days! I’m glad I remembered the webcam.

  1. Good to see you all, Doug. The boys are looking great and I am sure they are glad to have you home again! You are looking pretty good too, considering all you have been through with your illness. Glad the webcam is working, and is a good substitute.

    • Yeah. Now it’s my chirping fire detectors humming at a high pitch. The powers that be have been aware of this since the start of March. I lived with the chirp. The high pitched hum will kill all love I have of my landlord….!

  2. Since you have discovered the joys of the web camera you should probably also be aware that there are a lot of warnings circulating out there about how hackers can take control of your webcam and watch everything you do and if your computer mike is turned on they can also hear you. It is for that reason that I have my mike turned off and a piece of masking tape solidly over the lense on my webcam until such time as I decide to use it — which is rare indeed.
