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’m updating some software to see if it will fix the issue. I’ll have it back on here shortly - Tue 16 Aug - 07:52

Is the live camera frozen? It seems to have looked the same for me for the past 2 days.

Looks great so thanks. Saw a little bit of Aurora last night but had to go to bed at 1:30am.

Troy - Sat 13 Aug - 15:38

Ok. Things are back online. I’m fighting some computer updates and a minor electrical issue. I hope to get those fixed before the snow flys
