Is There A Source of Web Cam Links In Bluemoment

Postby BlowingOldBoots » Fri Feb 01, 2013 1:51 pm

Is there a section of Bluemoment that has a link to Webcams or a forum folder where such links exist? I work away from the UK a lot and check out the weather at Largs by looking at the Web Cam there: -

http://www.yachthavens.com/largs/our-haven/web-cam/

If there isn't such a place is this something Bluemoment would want to have a section with links to?

Cheers,

The Jura Stores webcam at Craighouse is pretty good, once they move that van out of the way.....

It used to work happily for me then stopped, but it appears it's my fault 'cos I lack the essential plug-in for it to play with Firefox (which it used to do). Remember when a 40Mb hard disc was so huge it was unimaginable to fill it?

Kip has 4, but they often seem to be steamed up. Their view is within the marina so they're of limited use if you're sitting at home wondering if it's worth going down to the boat. Here they are anyway.

Excellent, thanks a lot for the links! Its bloody freezing in Saudi at the moment, so I'll just get in a cold shower, dressed of course, and watch some of these web cams and feel right at home. All I need now is some nagging for that authentic home coming experience.

If there are any more please post a link here.
