Today I joined Digg and came across some great articles, including one on a topic I’ve been pondering writing about/adding to HauntJaunts.net‘s Find a Jaunts page: Ghost Cams.
WHAT’S A GHOST CAM?
A ghost cam is a webcam set up to monitor paranormal activity. Then, you the at-home-ghost-hunter, can monitor the activity without the travel, hassle, or investment in equipment. And you can do it round-the-clock if you want to. For multiple locations all at once.
HOW DO I FIND A GHOST CAM?
One way is to Google “ghost cam.” You’ll get a mind-boggling list of hits. Some are for actual ghost cams set up monitoring activity, some are to try and sell you ghost hunting equipment…it’s really kind of overwhelming.
You can save yourself all that work and check out this great article by Ryan Dube called “Go Ghost Hunting with Your Internet Browser.” Not only does he list the top ghost cams out there, he shows you how to set up a Webcam Watcher. I didn’t even know there was such a tool!
But Ryan sure does, and he uses step-by-step illustrations to explain how to configure everything you’ll need to have what he calls your at-home “ghost hunting lab” to flow smoothly from your computer.
It was a really great article that had exactly what I was wondering about (best ghost cams) and a little bit more (a technology lesson).
