My nose is crooked and oddly shaped. This is mostly due to an unscheduled impact with an immovable object.

There are webcams that you can pan around. You can even get a wifi based one for under $90 bucks, if you look, which would remove the need for a dedicated machine in the room next to the garden. They usually have their own web interface, too; so you would just have to make it accessible from outside...

Re: iTrip Antenna Mod

I've been doing some googling, and came across this thread which seems to suggest that the "A" pad on the 12v wire is an antenna. Could be, right? Makes sense that V and G could be "Voltage" and "Ground", and A could be "Antenna"? :?:
