I have been experiencing significant slowness in my webcam using cheese. I have moved to Guvcview now, and I am very happy with the move.
Almost a year ago I started a private video blog project. I sit in front of the camera and address to my kids as if they were watching this in the future. In these videos I tell them all the fun things we have done throughout the previous day. My goal is for the three of us to have a record of how happy their toddler years were.
