The topic: In hopes of saving bandwidth
I've made some minor changes to the cameras. The streaming feeds will now cut off at one minute. I did this because it's just too easy to leave the window open, get sidetracked and not watch the live feed. And in doing so, use (waste) my now limited bandwidth.
The patiocam, backyard cam and officecam now upload at forty-five second intervals instead of thirty second intervals. And the weather station uploads every fifteen minutes instead of every ten minutes.
I'll see if this makes a very big difference. If it does, I might be able to adjust things a little differently. I don't think the weather page gets all that much traffic, though. People might go there to look at the camera, but I don't think the actual weather stats make any difference to anyone but me. *lol*
I've spent the past few days searching bandwidth monitors and I settled on BMExtreme. Luigi was very helpful in getting it set up and that made a big difference to me. I liked the customer support. I had contacted a couple of other places and they never responded. Their loss.
