hancockwildlife.org is down, which is where the Live Cams page is with the cam pages we've been using. I contacted David Hathaway, and it doesn't sound as if they are ready to switch to the new website, so it may be a server issue. I'll email Ken in a minute, in case Hathaway hasn't called him.

The zoomer cams should be OK - they're on a different server.

Added - I called Ken, and he's checking.

Try these for now -

Delta - http://hwf.simian-studios.ca/live-cams/delta-2-both/

WR - http://hwf.simian-studios.ca/live-cams/white-rock-wacu/

HM - http://hwf.simian-studios.ca/live-cams/ ... ills-both/


Sounds as if this isn't intentional - I'll post more when I know more.
Judi, the middle link is the Delta cam page, not White Rock.

Thanks, Sue - too much of a hurry -

WR - http://hwf.simian-studios.ca/live-cams/white-rock-wacu/

And I'm having computer issues - can't connect to any embedded cams.

Or anything else, though my modem lights are all good. Off to reboot - if this posts.

Hi Dee - and welcome! :hi:

In the "Welcome and Helpful Hints" area, there's a "Please Post Your Questions Here" thread - viewtopic.php?p=18#p18 And most of us who have been working on the forum will answer a question whenever we see one - but we don't check all the threads, so posting there will get our attention quicker.

And here's a link to the Helpful Hint for how to change your password - viewtopic.php?p=408#p408

You can find the rest of the Helpful Hints by clicking the link at the bottom of this post. And if you have other questions, please let me know. :)

Hi everyone! I think they're going to try to do the transition to the new website late this evening. The current website and old forum will be offline for at least a couple of hours, but the new website should be up within a few minutes - and this forum should not be affected at all as it's not directly attached to either website.

I'm not going to be online most of the day today - should be back by late afternoon or early evening.

I love the new web site! It looks fresh, clean and totally uncluttered. The eagle that shows up first is fantastic! Is that one of Christian's photos? ALL you guys did a gret job! :thumlft:

Will there eventually be a link to the old forum? ....and maybe the first forum?

Thank you everyone who worked so very hard on this! It looks different for sure..........fresh, modern and much easier to figure out than the old site. Great job!
