If you're online and extremely bored you can take a look at my really boring webcam stream. I set it up late last night, basically just "because".

Right now of course it's just me loafing around at home, but as I travel around and get to wifi spots it'll also be streaming from various locations around the country.

Very dull stuff to be sure, but there is a guest book you can sign.

How fun! What are you making?

I would have to clean for a week before I set up a webcam. Plus brush my hair. I couldn't take the scrutiny!

I'm still working on the second baby bootie. Been kinda busy around the house and just haven't taken the time to finish it yet.

Oh, I should have mentioned that if you click on the streaming image it'll open another window that has a chat.

Sittin' and smokin' and sippin' and staring into space.
I wasn't bored before, but after three minutes of that....:p

Guess I'll come back when there's a little more going on.:thumbsup:

Yeah it is kind of odd, I agree. I've viewed lots of them since it started becoming popular a few years ago. Most are just as boring as mine but also interesting in an odd sort of way.

It's acutally very interesting in that it's in real time. To think of being a continent away and still seeing what someone is doing at that second. It's fascinating...

Ya know, I got to thinking, it might be fun. Someone may enjoy watching me and my boys hanging out. Of course, I'd be so self-conscious though. (My house is a mess and we like to go grubby somedays!) Then it hit me...I should probably wait until I'm done nursing the little one....Might be blocked and listed as pornographic for some!

I have a small fountain on a table in my living room. When I go to bed I put the camera on that. It has dim lighting of it's own and so it sort of shows up on the webcam.

Sadly, you're probably right. Some (stupid) people probably would freak out over it.

I have looked in several times (and felt weird each time), but I haven't seen you knitting yet. I'm wondering how fast you knit. Just saw you washing dishes. Does your home stay cleaner with the live web cam going? :teehee:

It's a small place so I pretty much have to keep it reasonably tidy.

Not bored at all. When home off the road I do spend the majority of my time just resting. Being on the road for weeks at a time really wears you down and I take advantage of my home time to get as much physical rest as possible.

It also gives my bad hip a much needed break. It really gets stiff and sore after a couple of weeks on the road. By the time I make it home again it's seriously nagging me.

Knitting_Guy
09-17-2008, 11:52 AM
Oh yeah, as for the sound, my desktop machine needs a new sound card. The current card simply won't pipe the mic through, otherwise it works ok. I'll be installing a new one eventually. The feed with sound while I was doing dishes was coming from my laptop.

Well, I dropped in for a 'look see'! You were at the 'puter, reading posts. I signed the guest book, PM'd you....went back for a 'nother look-see...and you were kicked back in the ole recliner, watching the TUBE or the 'puter...dunno which!

I saved your page in my BOOKMARKS QUICKLAUNCH TOOLBAR! Peekaboo...I see you!

This could get to be like watching the TRUMAN show! Remember that one, with Jim Carrey? Or ED-TV! Remember that one? With Matthew McConaughey?

Tuning in becomes like an addiction! I dunno what it is about it! :eyebrow:

That is really neat, Mason.

I'd cringe if somebody was watching me all day, especially listening to me. I'm a medical transcriptionist and some days when I can't understand what the doc is saying, what comes out of my mouth ain't pretty! LOL! :mrgreen:

Now I'm going to have to go sit out on the deck and knit this evening. You've given me the push to do it!

What are you knitting now Mason? Peeked in this morning and saw you had a female visitor. Did she know she was on camera? See you are keeping us entertained.

That great Mason! I love webcams. Is yours updating? You are in exactly the same position and place in your knitting that you were 4 hours ago. Just wondering. I know that they can have trouble stalling and not updating.

This might actually be crack!:roflhard: I get bored at work often, and I've enjoyed peeking at you knitting! Unfortunately my work computer isn't as good as my souped up gaming computer at home, so I'll sign the book now!
Ah, and I see you are drinking a beer and staring at the computer like me. funny!

I saw Mason's mom today! She was having an animated 'talk' with Mason! He was gesturing all over the place from his recliner...she was busily scribbling notes to him on her wipe board and showing him the board as her half of the conversation. Her back was turned towards the video cam, but she kinda turned sideways once in a while! Attractive lady!

Jean has lost the use of her vocal cords, as you know, from the surgery. But she is real good with her wipe board! Way to go, Jean! Go get 'em!

Mason is an early bird. Early to bed, early to rise, I think. It's 1 am in Florida now...and the cam is watching the fountain in the semi-dark.

The bootie is shaping up nicely. Are you using the Magic Loop technique? I've always wanted to learn that. It looks like a reasonable way to knit in the round, something I haven't done even though I've been knitting for almost 40 years... god I'm old...:oops:

Well, how wierd is that!! Just got up the nerve to take a peek for the first time. You are watching TV, enjoying a smoke (you really SHOULD quit you know!!!) and a beer ( I think- brown bottle). Do you KNOW when someone is looking???????

I could never do that, I would be afraid I would would forget about the camera and pick my nose or fart or something equally indelicate!!!!!!!!!!!

Your live streaming doesn't work anymore. All that comes up is a still shot of the truck. ????

I tried this also: click MENU>Live Streaming Video....but still get just the truck parked out front.

09-21-2008, 02:27 PM
Not letting us into your life anymore Mason? Maybe you are now out on the road again and that is why all we see now is the truck. I don't really know why it is fascinating to watch someone sitting in a chair smoking, drinking coffee or beer and knitting, but so many of us just can't help peeking.

Have a great day Mason, whatever you are up to.

He speaks in his blog of maybe going on the road again. At least partly depends on the width of the load & Georgia law about wide loads on the weekends.

09-21-2008, 06:33 PM
Yeah am back on the road again. I'll be running the feed as I can from whatever wifi hotspots I can stop at out here. Right now I am not sure who's signal I am using so I don't want to abuse it with a video feed.
