I have a sneaking suspicion my roomie is coming into my room when I'm at work, so I want to get some proof. Well, sorta.
What I'd like to do is download a program that will record my webcam during the period when I'm at work. You know, kind of like a security tape? I don't have to be able to access the feed from work or anywhere...just as long as it saves onto my computer so that I can view it when I get back.
Can anyone recommend anything? I've toyed around with a program called WILLING WEBCAM but it doesn't work.
Here, look at the monkey! Look at the silly monkey!
I used to have a link to some software that let you program automatic recording times. I'm still trying to find it. But in the meantime, you could just turn off your computer monitor and still have your webcam recording. That way it records your room while you're gone without alerting anyone to its presence.
The part Guru is talking about is the PRAM battery. Instructions for resetting it can be found here. But, given the symptoms, you probably will have better luck trying a reset of the "Cuda" a.k.a. the Power Management Unit.
