I sent a (snail) mail to Earthcam's CEO and founder Brian Cury on Tuesday night saying that numerous online inquiries about the camera have yet to be answered. Maybe other people should do the same? (The address is on their site.)

Wow, looks like they can't deliver parts fast enough. I really miss the EarthCam now. I'll email them too.

Earthcam seems utterly oblivious to our complaints, most likely intentionally. Sad.

Give us back our bloody EarthCam,
Fa la la la la-la la la la.
Oculus-less is a big sham,
Fa la la la la-la la la la.
Hoist we now our protest banners,
Fa la la-la la la-la la la.
Occupy 'til they learn manners!
Fa la la la la-la la la la!

I just noticed that in the picture above, the upper portals are being transported on regular trailers instead of the custom yellow ones.

The picture where we see the trucks arriving is great. I wish we had a picture like that one every week, just to compare with the previous ones.


I also noticed that the pieces assembled are of two "colors". They are mostly "perfectly grey" and a little "rusty brown"... Now, I know that they must not be painted that way. What I would like to know is if the material that is "rusty brown" is different than the one that is perfectly grey... E.g. Is the brownish part iron and the grey part galvanized metal?

The gray is painted, the brown on the edges is bare metal where there are going to be welds. Those will be smoothed and painted over afterwards.

It will all be painted eventually after it's completed to that pure white look.
