We're experiencing network problems at TSB. Nothing I can do about it on the weekend.

 Is there a replacement available, or is it necessary to purchase one?
If one needs to be purchased, are funds available, or will donations be needed?

We have a replacement in house ready to go.

The cameras at the Times Square building will be turned off around noon to work on removing Main Cam. It will be replaced at a later date, perhaps late next week when the weather is expected to improve.

We' going back tomorrow morning (Tuesday, 10/30) to install the new Main Camera. Expect the Times Square building cameras to be turned off at around 10 am.

We had no luck installing the new main cam. We'll try again some other time.

We'll try again tomorrow morning (12/3) to install the new Main Camera.

We're also having a problem with the circuit powering the TSB microphone and Camera 2.  I'll look after installing the new Main Camera.

The TSB microphone and Camera 2 started working again last night shortly after 6 PM. It makes it harder to figure out what broke when it fixes itself before you can have it repaired. I had a car like that once.

The new Rfalconcam main camera has been installed by Shaky, Carol P, Dana, June, Jenny and Christina!

Nice looking camera!

Might I presume there's still some back-of-the-house configuration to be done before it goes live?

Well, I was hoping to start downloading still photos from the new Main Cam tonight, but it appears that we lost our Internet connection to the Time Square building a few minutes ago.

Yay, I get to go back tomorrow to figure out what happened.

Video from Main Cam is weeks away. It most likely will require new computers. The ones at TSB are not as powerful as the ones I have at home.

Yes, we zoomed in tight on Beauty and DC on the I-beam. The image was rock steady despite the wind thanks to image stabilization. We also zoomed in on Kodak Tower. We won't have any problems seeing falcons perched on the arch above the old nest box location.

A comparison of Main Camera to Camera 1

These were shot at about the same time. Look at the library and the building in the distance with the Blue Cross and Blue Shield logos.
