Hi Casey and all,

1. VCRS are not made for use after use with the same tape, and the quality
will detoriorate as it passes 15 runs.

2. A medium end computer system with a high quality cam will cost much less
and the storage devices are made to run millions of times, and the data for
720 MB can now be easily stored in one CD at home. So thats a lot of time,
and each CD costs less than one dollar and the writer device is only
<$300. The scenario is clear.

With the emergence of widespread webcams, this data can also be transmitted
all over the world and recoreded real time in many different places....!!!.
Food for thought ??
