4.  Bob Ekman reported on the Webcam project. The webcam is sending a image to the Rocknet server every minute.  An image is displayed on Rocknet along with the City web server.  The images are archived every hour on Rocknet.  The archive was started on October 1.  There are two other queues of images -- hourly and daily.

The images are being collected, but there is no time lapse generation software.  Bob asked the attendees to come up with suggestions for a solution.  Bob will post a collection of images to test the software.

The meeting adjourned at 9:00 pm

Respectfully submitted,

Robert Ekman
