Thank you, Danie and Paul and team :gflower:
We will appreciate the roving cam even more when back in action :D

A close up of that leopard would have been great :wink:

Hi lovely cammers :yaya:

This isn't quite a cam question - but is (I guess) IT related...
Is anyone else having problems loading the SANParks pages?

Over the last couple of weeks - at reasonably frequent intervals - I haven't been able to load any of the pages (webcams / forums)... it just comes up with an "unavailable" message.

I don't think this is my computer because I can always load up other web pages at the same time...

Is this just me or is anyone else having the same problems? :hmz:

Sorry - the other thing I noticed is that when I'm online (I don't hide my online status) - my name appears at the bottom of the (forum) page - but it says I am "offline" next to my name and picture...

Not sure if anyone else has had this either? :hmz:

We all had a problem loading the site early this morning, Mel.
Please let me know when you have such a problem again.

I will also check your profile when I see you online :thumbs_up:

Does it never show that you are online next to your name Mel?

The online status is set to refresh every one minute so if you are not active such as refreshing a page within that minute it will show you are off line on the bottom of the page. It used to be every 5 mins between refreshes, but about a year ago this was changed.

Hi Mel :D

Yes, I have experienced the same thing over the past weeks, but I thought it might have been scheduled downtime during the SA night.

I wonder if it also happens during the SA daytime when us Aussies are sleeping :hmz:

I think I may have worked this one out...
I just installed Tapatalk on my phone (and accessed the SANParks forum from here) - so maybe this has something to do with it?

Carol g - do you use Tapatalk as well?

Please note that we are taking Orpen Webcam video streaming "off the air" for about 30 minutes we are running some bandwidth tests to Orpen.

Apologies for the inconvenience.

I've been cam watching lately and find the Satara cam to be off many times in a day!

Addo cam will be down until repair work to the line is completed. Sorry about the inconvenience, Kite and Cammers :gflower:
The technical people are aware of Orpen cam being down :thumbs_up:

OK thanks, hope it's sooner than expected.
I hope someone finds an animal at Satara soon as nothing captured since this morning!
