Some Nimisis software that's been popular with star gazers and academics is Exposure, which makes long exposure images with a webcam. There's a new version out now which allows users to set where to save the resulting image and also what format, i.e. compressed or uncompressed.

This is a little experiment to test how subtle you come across during the odd occasion that you try to be "creative with the truth." A webcam, speakers and Flash Player 9 are required to take part. For the sake of not spoiling the results, you are asked to do the test first - the theory is explained further down on this page.
Turn on the speakers and set up your webcam so that your face will be ...
Version 2 of Webcam Exposure is out! Improvements include support for high definition cameras and some minor bug fixes from version 1.

I'm going to make me one of these anti-burglar webcam security applications. Coming soon with source code... when I have some spare time!

Today's turning out to be a really good day and it's only lunchtime. My shares are up, the landlord may actually do something about my sink, and my new camera has arrived. It's awesome. Have been playing around with it all morning. May even get a webcam up on this page, who knows?! The fact that I can take short movie clips with it has made me determined to catch myself in a sneeze.
