Q: When do I appear on the webcam?
A: Since I am not working these days you can pretty well find me on cam most of the day. My cam goes 24/7 however, it is turned off when I feel the need for privacy or I'm broadcasting elsewhere.

Q: Why do I have this website?
A: I love webcamming. Was one of the first things I discovered online. I found it kinda cool yet voyeuristic to watch people sitting at their computers so inturn I decided to get my own webcam site going and it's been going since about 1999. I'm not a big chatter so that's why there is very little contact info on my site. I've never really done this to meet people. My Skype thingy is mostly family, a few co-workers and a few good friend's I've met online.

Q: Why is there a roll of toilet paper on my desk?!?
A: Well... you know. ;)

Q: What software do I use to build this site?
A: For almost 14 years I've used a program called Derekware HTML Author 3.0 to edit and design my website. That program was last updated in 1996. Unfortunately, I have not been able to use its "preview" mode with today's browsers. So I've had to look for a new editor. On April 6th, 2013, I've found one called Page Breeze HTML Editor. I still like to write my own code or copy and paste it. I've never been able to get into any of these fancier editing programs. On June 15th, 2013, I have found another new basic HTML Editor called HTML-Kit which doesn't change the code around as I write it. Page Breeze did this and I found it very annoying.

A: I'm currently using TinCam software to FTP my webcam image. Unfortunately, because of compatitability issues with all the different browsers I can no longer offer a LIVE Streaming cam. Also, streaming takes A LOT of bandwidth.

A: Most of the time I like to look through Canadian Satellite TV forums.
