Fake Webcam Sites

January 22, 2004 14:17

It seems that a significant number of visitors to this site initially doubt that the cams are live, or at the very least insist on having proof that they are. Some go so far as to insist they MUST be fake, only because the concept of computer controlled lights is a bit too tough to swallow, even though consumer grade home automation devices have been on the market for over 20 years. However, although the lamp control is somewhat rare, webcams are not. There are literally thousands of live webcam sites on the internet, and in all my surfing, I've yet to discover a webcam site that claims to be live, yet isn't. Yet people seem so insistant on the fact that fake webcams are not only possible, but prevelant. In fact, some people even have rather delusional ideas on how a fake live webcam could be accomplished.

So here's my challenge. Find me a webcam site that claims to have a live cam feed, yet you can prove doesn't. To qualify, the site must serve up changing images that never repeat, and must have some interactive element on a regular basis that show's activity.

The simple fact of the matter is that even sugguesting that the site might be fake is only a demonstration of your own ignorance. I have rather extensive documentation on this site regarding how exactly I put it all together, as well as providing source code in excess of 10000 lines which I wrote to handle all the various functions of this site. All of this is available for you to peruse. If you choose to simply disbelieve without even bothering to do your research first, you do nothing more than prove to us where you fall on the food chain.

In other news, the Earth is a sphere, not flat. The Earth revolves around the Sun, not the other way around. The civilized world was dragged kicking and screaming from the stoneage a long time ago. It might be time to catch up.
