:redface: Thanks for reporting the webcam @ Orpen. I reset the cam this morning at around 8am and it was fine for a while after that it seems. I left the office for a few meetings and found the Orpen Webcam again doing what it likes on my return to the office! :redface:

I rebooted the webcam 2x now and it came up with a great view with ellies and buffs on cam! I'll keep an eye on it for the next few hours... So far it is behaving...

Apologies for the view of Orpen Gate for a while! At least there are elephants and buffs on cam now! :dance:

Hi Danie :D

When you get a chance please can you fix up the cam angle at Orpen :pray:
Otherwise I'll have to keep photoshopping the images together :wink:

Also, pretty please can we have some pan and zoom on the Nossob cam :pray: :pray: :pray:

Thanks, Mel :gflower: :gflower:
