Back from the field
I got word via cell phone that the osprey and eagle cams were down. We were able to resolve the problems on both cams, momentarily. Unfortunately, the osprey cam is down again and I am locked out of the computer. We have restarted the computer a couple of times, but it keeps shutting down. My fear is that the computer has been compromised from the earlier attack from the hacker or virus and may be down for the season.
I am heading back out into the field tomorrow and will be away from computers for another week. I am afraid that I will need to erase the hard drive of computer, reload all the software and start over—something that takes about a day or two. My challenge at this point is finding that day.
June is the month around which the rest of our year revolves because most of the birds in the northeast are nesting and raising young. At this moment I am overseeing six projects, four of which need to be completed in the next two weeks.
Come July, I will have a spare couple of days that, hopefully, I can put towards fixing this computer.
I hope you are all having a great summer and I will keep you updated on how all is progressing.
