Gremlins, gremlins - they hide in the corners and can strike any time, LOL.

I'm thinking that John and or Shawn chased the gremlins off. All I did was shut down my computers and go to sleep for hours and get back up.
The sleep method has never fixed a computer for me before.

My solution(s) were a bit more complicated, but mine are also back.

I started last night by running Firefox (FF) in safe mode thinking that an add-on was causing the problem, but I had the same result, "black screen - An error occurred". Then on a hunch I disabled flash and Derek's video ran, but IE10 still didn't.

I had seen LaybackBear's (LB) post were his came back after hibernating over night and I re-enabled flash and the video was still working, but IE10 still didn't.
After looking through my IE10 settings, I saw that active-x filtering was turned on so, I turned it off and the video ran.

I believe the FF problem was related to youtube's servers being down, a belief I posted over on jumanji's thread. Seems Downdetector was showing youtube was having problems since March 5th, and the IE10 fix is self-explanatory.

I'm still wondering why the video worked after disabling flash on FF while youtube was still having problems, and why everyone else was able to see the video while LB and I couldn't. I'd of loved to have found the active-x switch during this troubleshooting.


EDIT:
There's been an update to jumanji's thread by z3r.

"I am stopping with this for now. Don't know what more to do."

Error when trying to play youtube video in What are you listening to?

I think I will go to sleep hereafter whenever there is a problem. And let z3r do the rest

EDIT: Thanks Anak, I saw the update by z3r only after seeing your post here as redirected.. I had gone to sleep.

I'm trying to figure out the orientation of the nest from the camera, map and the Sun angle shadows.

  • The picture was taken at 1pm edt. The Sun was 173.17°South at an altitude of 46.4°, Solar Noon was 1:17 PM (46.5°)
  • The parent Eagle is facing into the Sun which should be due South (180°) or slightly Southeast (173.17°).
  • I don't have a formula to figure this out, but I believe the livecam is looking North/Northwest (353.17°).

information   Information
The first egg of 2015 appeared on Valentine’s Day, February 14 at 5:55 pm. A second egg was laid three days later on February 17 at 4:44 pm. With roughly 35 days of incubation, we’ll be on #eggwatch beginning March 21. We expect any fledglings to have left the nest by late-June or early July.

Notice in the pix an hour later how the shadows have moved and how the Eagle has built up the softer fluff around her.

I can verify that there are still two eggs underneath her.

Caught some behaviour at 7:05am edt (11:05UTC) 03-15-15.

While watching at 7am this morning I saw the Eagle look over its shoulder, rise up, and fly away to the right of the large trunk in the background then down towards the gray house. No more than 3seconds later this one flew onto the nest inspected the two eggs and laid down on top of them.

Notice the gray object on the outer rim of the nest at the 7-O'Clock position. That is a bird that one of the Eagles had caught and has laid there the last two days.

Really can't tell the Eagles apart so, you'll notice my general terminology in the use of gender and pronouns, but this one has a white blotch on its middle/left breast.

My pleasure Jack.

Important? It's more of a habit I have, and I tend to pass it along.

When I was a young lad and prone to wandering about the neighborhood and being a river rat I would spend hours exploring and I would use the Sun angle and shadows to tell the time of day and which way was home, if I didn't make it home on time I always caught heck for being late for supper. Later on in life it has helped when hunting or fishing.
I have always had a love for orienteering, but I'm afraid it is becoming a lost art much like the use of pi.

Think back, weren't you the least bit curious which way was home on those rare occasions when you were allowed up on deck for a break?
