    ok ok i am heron overwhelmed...............having issues with my lappy and the gpf, the page does not show right on firefox any more, it has gotten such big font I have to scroll to see the whole page, no clue why all else works, so had to open.........IE........yuck

    so I assumed...........lol............that you all would just substitute numbers.....

    http://68.33.56.174:85

    and you do need to accept the active x again.

    I just paid for a month for our traveling modem, we are leaving soon, so it will still be good while we are gone...........all is working fine
    i made gpf gpf1 gpf2 gpf3 gpf4

    I had to replace the dvr, with another from the same company, got to love costco, no issues in taking it back. it would only record on 2 of the 4 channels, the cameras got internal fog on the lens.
    So we upgraded to a 8 camera system, I was constantly swapping out lines to see something else.

    At this point think it is right, can't test it from home needs to be tested over the internet, not the intranet, settings the same as the other, just comcast changed our ip addy.

    Computers can be so irritating sometimes.

    After adding the :85 now I can see all 4 windows but of course it's dark there where you are now so can't see colors. Did the bird give up and leave again?

    I am so ingrained with firefox, saved non important passwords etc..............maybe later lol, right now brain is tired.

    I know tmann, I should know better, used to build and teach the new software to the department, always had to spell it out step by step. One of my problems i assume........lol

    still trying to get the dynamic domain name service (ddns) working. It is set up on the dvr, tests just fine, but the internet will not attach. We need this in case they change our ip addy again while we are out of town. Added it to the compatability mode etc........on ie

    It has been back every day now, walks around the pond 2-4 times, then hunts bugs in the garden. We have big fat black crickets it is eating. Then it circles the pond and goes away. After staring at the fish for a while. Stays an average of 2 hours. sometimes comes back more than once, usually slightly shorter trips, the second and third trips.

    It figured out a way to go across the rock wall, now need to block that one small place with a piece of fence and that should be taken care of. But we did have fence at the bottom of the wall so it just stood and stared at the fish. Will put a few more u tubes up in the other thread once I convert them. it is interesting to watch and learn its habits.

    He's been foiled and is just too stubborn to give up. He's got to find more to eat than just crickets soon doesn't he? Wonder where he goes for the rest of the day when he comes and goes from your place.

    the heron is stubborn, it flies to the south of us, there are some nice big lakes / ponds / rivers that way. Wish it would just stay there..........
    It does snag the crickets, a step and bite a step a bite lol, yesterday over a hour just in the gardens, in between circling the pond......
    It does like rainy days, it is cloudy and rainy for the next week so I am sure it will be back every day. I need to do a little fixing before it comes back tomorrow. Frustrate it some more lol

    I think he will be around for the winter as the rivers in your zone don't freeze I bet except for a once in 30 years would be my guess. Maybe you should name him and give him the things he needs to make a nest in your backyard. He could be your new outside pet.

    I haven't seen them or heard them in a few days, nothing left for them to forage on.

    Maybe you should get a bunch of those mosquito fish and put them in your lotus tub and he can eat them, they are small and quite fast so it may entertain him or he may get frustrated and just leave.

    lol that is a good idea! It may have gotten my roseys that were in the tank. Maybe a frog, I saw it catch something big, don't have any large fish in that tank.
