Portsea surfcam seems to be outâ€¦ again!
Portsea surfcam is running OK at our end.
Hmmmâ€¦ yes well it does seem to be back up & running this morning. I couldn't get it at all yesterday afternoon. Alrightâ€¦ thanks for your comment thermalbenâ€¦ I'll just go back to my eggnog then shall I. Merry Christmasâ€¦ carry on!
Sometimes the ADSL connections do go down for brief periods - but we've got systems in place to reduce the down time as much as possible. The entire Portsea surfcam infrastructure was upgraded a short while ago, so hopefully it'll be more reliable.
The only thing we're unable to find a better solution for is the regular misting on the glass (of the Surf Club tower, in front of the surfcam) - there's no other way to clean it than by getting someone down there with a chux and a bottle of water.
Yes the misting can be a nuisance sometimes canâ€™t it. Maybe cleaning the surfcam could be a punishment for unruly grommets at the Portsea club. I think 12hr shifts should surficeâ€¦Â thatâ€™d get â€˜em into line, quick smart.
Thanks for your time thermalben.
