  1. The hacker in me wants to take on another project.

    I have had another brain storm.

    I know that a lot of keepers would love to keep an eye on their pets
    when they are away.

    I have a few of these cheap IP cameras lying around some of them are broken some are ok.

    Well when you actually take one apart there really not all that complicated.
