Eye-Fi update

I had problems with my Eye-Fi card (click here for my previous blog entry on this). It would just stop working after a while in my security camera application. Then one day I logged into the Eye-Fi Manager and received a message that my Eye-Fi card was recalled. Eye-Fi then shipped me a new card within two days and a mailer to return the old card.

Now, I am having much better luck with the new card and have run it over a day now with my CHDK motion detecting script. I have the Canon A590IS camera pointed out into my front yard and have caught some birds at my feeder. I am not a bird watcher so if anyone can tell me what kind of birds these are, I would appreciate it.

I will post my test results with running the Eye-Fi card based security solution in the near future and hopefully I can report that it has run for many days or even weeks.
