I'm trying to find things to do to waste bandwidth.

Normally I wouldn't be, but I realised, that because I joined up towards the end of the month, and WestNet work to the calender month, while I didn't pay for a full month's access, I ended up with a month's worth of download.

I've had streaming radio going for the last couple of days, that's wasted a bit. is the station I've been listening to, now that NetRockRadio is gone (ok, wel NRR has been gone for over 3 years now, but I used to enjoy streaming it when I worked for an ISP, back in 98/99, that had a huge 128k connection).

While listening to the stream off soma, I've been impressed by some of the suff I've heard, mainly "Zero 7", so I used LimeWire to download a stack of their songs, wasting a bit more.

I'm doing quite well, I checked my usage, and I've managed to go through over 500Mb, a pretty good effort, when I wasn't really doing all that much on the web today.

While trying to find more things to waste bandwidth, I recalled those internet cameras that most people don't put a password on, and google can find them.

After a bit of googling, I found them to be "axis" cameras, and you need to google for "inurl:view/view.shtml", which turns up stacks of them.

Some of them you can even control, which is pretty cool.

Anyway, the best ones I've found so far, are here, a huge nest with a couple of huge birds in it, and here, a Lego setup.

here's a comms room of some description. Maybe I need to get a few more racks :-)

here's a clock and a fishtank.

here's some sort of weird pendulum.

here's some rockets.

I'll keep adding more cool ones as I find them.
