The computer has lost its "umbilical cord" to the Internet. It is either a hardware communications problem, or the computer's clock battery may be dead.

I've been working with the museum manager, but progress has been slow. He is expecting someone will be in this afternoon to look at it.

I might could take a little look at it this weekend Steve... if you want to send me the stats on the system I could do a little research before heading up so I can have some possible solutions on hand...

Thanks, Chris. Wazzu has stepped up, and she'll be there Friday.

With wazzu and wagga's help, we were able to check the Whitney webcam computer at the museum in Lone Pine. It turns out the power supply has died. Wazzu is taking the computer home, and we'll get it repaired and back running.

There might be an opportunity for someone heading up from So. Cal to Lone Pine, to deliver and reconnect the computer.

The computer has been repaired and is ready to hook up. Is anyone on this forum heading up in the next week or two, and willing to take it to the museum?

I'll be there in late Sept or early October, doing a few runs around the west and east side before hitting the trail. If you can't find anyone by then, I'll do it whistle

Thanks Fishman. But I should be getting over there by then myself. If nothing else, wazzu might UPS it back to the museum in the next week or two.

of course, then I need to get from the valley to OC to get the puter......

I was in Lone Pine most of last week. I could have taken it there, but I'm guessing it was still in the shop at that point. Bad timing, oh, well....

You could meet Wazzu halfway - that is if you both are willing to risk the "psychopath I met on the Internet syndrome".

It's a good guess that each of you own an ice axe, anyway...

Picture is back! Clicking on the thumbnail brings up the old pic, just hit refresh on the browser & it should be good.
