Re: National Geographic Web Cam

For anyone who might need it (response to query re. National Geographic web
camera re-pointing:

Just click on the part of the picture that is nearest where you want to
re-point the camera (e.g., at a corner for diagonal motion, at mid-side or
mid top or bottom for moving that way).  Its slow, annoying, but eventually
you'll get there.  Fast multiple clicks work for greater movement at one
