Tech

Forths.com debuted in June 2000 as an archive of family events and photos.  While maintaining this web site, and the server it runs on, is mainly a hobby for me, I’ll continue to improve it to ensure that it’s a modern, convenient source for sharing the latest events and photos with friends and family.

In March 2017, the ancient Alden Webcam and the server it was connected to were both retired, replaced with a tiny Raspberry Pi Zero W computer (right) with a camera module connected to it.

This little computer handles all the picture-taking duties at the lake, in addition to storing and serving the images.  Best of all, it runs off an old cell phone charger, so it barely uses any electricity compared to the old, loud server.

Thanks for checking in.  Stop by periodically for the latest pictures and stories.
