Ants are rubbish, they haven't dug a single millimetre of tunnel in one week. So whilst not turning my back on the project, I have turned off the webcam, and instead will post photo updates every few days.

For one thing not having a light and computer on 24/7 should save a bit of electricity! For another taking pictures with my digital camera rather than the webcam should give you a better insight into what's going on (if anything!)

Furthermore the number of photos that look exactly the same in the galley is ridiculous!

However that said until Tony asks for his webcam back I'll might try and find some other use for it!
