GuyOnTheAirLIVE.com Update, January, 2010.
The GuyOnTheAirLIVE.com webcam is currently down? Why? It's simple. The cam broke, the computer running it died, and I've lost interest in keeping up something that about 2 people were using, just to stalk me.
When I first put up GuyOnTheAirLIVE.com, it was something of a novelty. You could move my cam around, and follow my life, a bit. Many of you did that. Many of you would talk to me in the chat room, and we became online buddies. Many of you also shared pictures of yourself with me, or would get on your own cams and chat with me.
That sense of community is almost non-existent these days. Nobody chats, or if they do, they issue commands like "show us your ass."
Over the years, GuyOnTheAirLIVE.com has gone through 3 different Web cams, all of them the same. They were Logitech Orbit Webcams. The picture quality was great, and people enjoyed being able to control the cam themselves. But, after a year or two, the gears in the cameras wear out. If I didn't replace the camera, at my own expense immediately, people were no longer able to be remote controlled. And then people would begin to bitch that they couldn't control the movement, or that I wasn't pointing the cam at what they wanted to see.
The software I used to run the cams was a combination of a certain Logitech driver for their Orbit cams, and the EyeSpyFX software, written for that specific version. Newer Orbit cams from Logitech require much newer drivers, and are not recognized by the EyeSpyFX software. The last cam I purchased for GuyOnTheAirLIVE.com a couple of years ago was a refurbished, original Orbit cam. However, these are no longer available.
To get GuyOnTheAirLIVE.com up and running again would require some funds, and some new software and coding. It's not something I have a ton of time to do these days. But, if there was suitable interest, and people were willing to put their money where their mouth was, I'd make it happen.
If you wish to see GuyOnTheAirLIVE.com up and running again, then make it happen with your PayPal donation. When I accumulate $150 in donations, the webcam at GuyOnTheAirLIVE.com will return, better, improved, and redone. The money will be used for the new cam and software that will be required, as well as finding a suitable machine for running it.
