Yes a SETIcam!!!

Pictures are Great ,
now a Webcam pointing at the rack !!!!
(to view Server action)not hard working staff
[unless they wan' to be ON]
that would be different

SetiCAM !!!!

The heck with a cam pointing at the equipment rack, get one pointing at the antenna at Arecibo!

googleing seems they aint got one at arecibo :(
not far away http://www.weather-forecast.com/locations/Arecibo/webcams/latest :)

From what I understand, the folks at Arecibo don't much like unshielded electronics anywhere even remotely close to them. If I remember right, the staff have to bike or walk about a mile from the closest parking? I have no accurate idea when or on what show I saw the documentary, but it was at least a decade ago.

the antenna at Arecibo
doesn't do much ,in the way of moving etc
so stills are fine .
the scenery would be great ,the weather would play havoc with a webcam ,but the Server cam ,would let us all see ,in real time
what Activity was happening at the heart of seti.
of course multiple cams[Arecibo & Server rack] would be great
but the bandwidth would have to be small
so the Science projects are kept running .

How about a webcam sending a still image every 60 seconds to a external FTP.

I'll donate some FTP space on my dedicated if they want to set something like that up. :)
