Nuts-and-bolts: Picture is taken with Connectix QuickCam monochrome CCD digital camera. Image is captured using a custom image capture routine running on a '286 PC, which runs proprietary Ethernet MAC-layer bridging software (FreyBridge). The raw image is transfered to a SPARC SunOS Unix file system via UDP (over another 28.8K modem-based Ethernet bridge '386 PC) and converted to a JPEG image. A shell script running as a cron job on this '486 Linux-based HTTP server transfers the JPEG image to the Linux machine. The shell script also updates the HTML you are viewing.
