        I'm so there... on the web... through the webcam.

        Our revels now are ended. These our actors, As I foretold you, were all spirits and Are melted into air, into thin air: And, like the baseless fabric of this vision, The cloud-capp'd towers, the gorgeous palaces, The solemn temples, the great globe itself, Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff As dreams are made on, and our little life Is rounded with a sleep. mycroft16 on Twitter

          Should I turn off the cam until the show or broadcast a graphic?

                    You might want to get off the sun before it burns out your camera.

                      Excellent. I hope you are able to make a bit of real money off the ad links on the site. Perhaps enough for a dole whip or two...

                      Don't you have anything more interesting to point at during the day than open sky? A fishtank or a plant perhaps?

                        Great idea, I'll be there by Remote Control - that's right before I have to start a night job.

                        One big problem: Do NOT aim any camera lens right into the Sun, even if the camera is turned off. The sun's heat is foccused through the lens on the imaging chip, and it fries the CCD sensor chip. Maybe not immediately (it'll probably be OK if you do it tonight) but after a few days of this I can guarantee damage.

                        If this is at your house or office (somewhere you have access to for maintenance) the hot ticket would be a remote-controlled camera with a Tilt/Pan mount system so that the camera can be turned away from the sun during the day. They make cameras that have a Web-interface for the remote controls, where each user gets 30 seconds if there's a queue waiting, and of course the site owner can override that.

                        That, or rig up a shutter or shade in front of the lens. That should be easier to raise and lower with a remote control or timer of some sort - they make remote controlled window blinds and X-10 computer interfaces...

                        Other things that might cause problems are an Auto-Iris or Auto-Exposure setting - the fireworks are going to confuse the heck out of it. Be prepared to switch the camera to manual exposure or a very long delay for the automatics, some camcorders actually have a "Fireworks" setting. The Auto-Focus will also go nuts from fireworks since it's a low-light situation with sudden bursts, fix it on Infinity.

                        (When you only get one chance at things, you want to avoid the obvious pitfalls.)

                        Okay, and now about your bandwidth tonight...
