I am sitting in Tau's computer room. The new camera is installed and appears to work fine, including all the pan, tilt and zoom functions. I have to do some more hacking to get the images transferred to Africam but thought you'd all like to know it should be up tomorrow.
Bribes are currently being accepted for remote control of the camera :]
I have taken photos of the process and will post the day's events as a story with pics when I get back home.
