Hey Danny

Thanks for the reply and the tip...I will try to reach him/her.

In answer to your question, Conquer Cam is a buyable software. What it does 
is to show the WebCAM an captures Images every x time and sends it via FTP 
to any server.

But it doesn't works so fine, I think its because I cracked and didn't buy 
it *grin*
But I need like 200 licenses so it would be a little expensive. That's why 
I'm trying to make my own Python Gengis Cam *grin*

Thanks again
