      That is a really good idea.  Maybe it makes sense to use an old camera off of ebay since we don't need that many megapixels..

      They are fairly cheap and easy to set up; I will probably get a new one since the view from the comp room window is quite nice. Speaking of which, does anyone know of an inexpensive still camera which can be remote-controlled through the USB to take periodic snapshots? I would like to have better IQ than a 640x480 webcam, and the ability to add on a UV and IR filter for solar protection since the cam faces south. I thought Canon used to have a decent USB interface, but I cannot remember.
