Brrr it is cold here in Fairbanks. They said on the news tonight that they recorded -53F at the airport this morning here in Fairbanks! Today I decided to take some time and look at some of my archived video footage. I was able to discover the earliest recorded aurora that I have ever seen. July 11th 2011 was the date. It is common to hear of the aurora in August. Not so common to hear of it in July. At some point here in the next few weeks I plan on making a few videos from this footage for the site.

  Today was also "Operation Router Rescue" I run a very extensive network on the hill. The network includes my webcams, Mt. Aurora Fairbanks creek lodge, my mom and dads old house and Skiland. My current network has 2 routers, 6 access points, 5 large wifi antennas, one IP camera, 2 wifi networks and about 10 computers. Over the years I have gathered up a bunch of routers and access points that refuse to work properly. Today I made a last ditch effort to restore as many as I could for future failure replacements. Below is a few photos of my router operations. I'm using Linux ubuntu to try to restore the firmware via tftp. More news to come soon. -Troy

I believe I have fixed the issues with the camera not showing. Please let me know if you're still having trouble. Sorry for the long delay. It turned out to be a real pain.

Troy - Mon 16 Jan - 18:48

Maggie, I'm currently trying to find a solution to fix the problem. As far as I can tell its only working on iPhone. I will update here hopefully as when I figure out what the problem is.

maggie - Mon 16 Jan - 13:52

Troy, I've tried three different browsers and it isn't working on any of them.

The Live cam screen is not appearing at all on chrome tonight 1/15/23 - Says "Live Aurora Webcam" at the top but then there isn't even a black screen appearing underneath; just nothing there (was working fine last night 1/14)

Troy - Fri 13 Jan - 20:37

Live cam is working on google chrome on the desktop. Still trying to figure out why its not working for safar.

Troy - Thu 12 Jan - 23:26

Troy - Thu 12 Jan - 22:22

So for some reason the streaming camera stopped on the desktop. I can get it to work with my phone. Currently I’m troubleshooting and hope to get it back soon.
