Why did we change the website?

We are pleased to have our new website up and running. It’s been three years or so since the last update so it was time to refresh the content, upgrade the web server software and make a number of structural changes on the site to make it easier to use for our our customers.

What are the key changes?

The key changes include:

  • The Member’s Area has been removed so our customers no longer need to register for an account or remember their username and password

  • SSL encryption is now running on the site which provides for a safer browsing experience.

  • Cross platform support so the site will look better on mobile phones, tablets and other devices

What happened to the webcam?

We had to take the webcam offline several weeks ago as it was not functioning correctly. It’s unclear whether this was due to a malfunction of the unit or an issue with the camera not being able to support the heavy web traffic. Whatever the reason, the camera was locking up frequently which required us to reboot the unit nearly every day.

So we decided to scrap it and look for something else. We hope to purchase a new camera soon at which point we will embed it on our website. We will make an announcement when that happens.
