Great to see the feed from the playa!

Image feedback:
The resolution has gone up from 480 to 720p, but oddly, it's missing detail. It's like the compression is so huge it's stripping most of the detail out. Rarely texture in the ground or other surfaces (and smoothed and with artifacts when there is), edges looking like ragged saw-tooth lines smoothed over. Some of the bikes riding by with parts of or even whole wheels missing as lost detail, magically showing again when they line-up with something in the background. No idea where in the path from camera to final stream this is occurring.

Panning to see different views is nice, but the panning is really abrupt, and the image frequently breaks up as it pans.

... but don't harm the red dragon that frequents the area from time to time. He and I have an agreement.

Are you comfortable? Is there anything I can get you?

Yes. Apart from feeling that I need new glasses...

In the past, they've always wanted timely feedback on what is getting out. The above is it.

Thanks again everyone involved for making this possible, even though it's sort of a form of torture :mrgreen:

Anyone up for weather predictions? Thought this would be a good thread to glom onto about it because we can see the stream.

Over here northwest of Tahoe the temps are super mild for this time of year, but more wind is on the way. I hear they are calling for storms to the north, maybe alittle of that action will roll onto the BR Desert?

I predict mild temps to continue and some wind to pick up. Windy and dusty year, but not much heat stroke going on. Sounds like the nights haven't been too cold though at around 57 low. Thats pretty rare...Usually when it's milder during the day, that means colder at night.

Bring on the wind....I know its hard to work in but the city desperately needs an enema!
