It was great fun. When she died, my brother took up the mantel. He has a monitor in his shop that always has my webcam on the screen and below it is a sign that says "Say hi to my sister in Seattle!". He has his own Dropcam (with sound) so I can actually hear them when they say hi.
Vestigially, I had a Dropcam on top of my TV and then another IP cam off to my right. Really no need for two so I moved the IP cam back to the sewing room just now. There turns out to be really no great place to mount it. The current spot is a trial. We'll see how it goes.

You should not need a password for either view. And now I'll be sending that el-cheapo one right back to Amazon as soon as it gets here :)
(And to the random person who does not know me and finds this page, please refrain from telling me how insecure and unsafe having these webcams are. I totally understand and appreciate your concern and would appreciate it even more if you keep your thoughts and concerns to yourself.)
