#chickencam – minor update.

Well, #chickencam is still alive. Only a few small details to report…
1. I have had to buy one of these… http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/290598896280?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1439.l2649 to talk to the Nanode. FYI if you are building a nanode, you need the 5v version.
2. I’m teaching myself to program at the moment. I’ve bought .. http://oreilly.com/catalog/9780596802387 to get me going. I’ve also bought http://oreilly.com/catalog/9780596802486 with my swag from Oggcamp. By the way O’reilly rock an incredible amount. I’ll blog about that soon. I’ll also blog a couple of reviews soon as well.
3. I’m going to get one of these http://jeelabs.com/products/jeenode to send the data from garden into my wireless network.
4. I thnk most significantly – I’ve found this.. http://www.coolcomponents.co.uk/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=45&products_id=369 and I think it’s going to be one of these I use, not a web-cam or IP cam. I just need to figure out how to program the nanode to talk to it and control it.
