A watchful webcam technique for PC users

It's surprising the peace of mind that using a webcam to monitor important things can bring. In Smart Home Hacks, I wrote about how I use a standalone network camera to keep an eye on my dog Scooter while I'm at work. That approach is platform-agnostic (the camera has a built-in web server) but I've heard from several readers who were looking for a Windows-based solution. This article, Using Your Webcam for Surveillance is nicely done and should set you off on the right track. Enjoy!
