Thanks so much for sharing your amazing adventure.

Reply Tim Hollingworth April 30th, 2008 Hi to all you guys on the project in New Zealand, both in front of the camera and the team behind. I can’t believe i’ve been watching this live on my computer in the United Kingdom, amazing. Weve come a long way since Telstar! Maybe smelly-vision will be the next thing to hit the internet… But seriously thanks for sharing this project, it makes the world a smaller and much more friendlier place.

Legendary stuff guys. I’m guessing it’s getting smelly, or at the least all mooshy. Keep up the great work and webcam coverage. Reply Mac Garcia April 30th, 2008 Amazing, indeed!
