Glad you like the Halloween site - BTW, there is some geographic awareness
in the CGI script that actually controls the webcam - see:
and it's running 90%+ hits from the US - see:
Isn't Halloween celebrated elsewhere?


P.S. Back to sudo - I saw your subsequent Emails about other problems;
not sure what to say - the syntax is fairly straighforward - you ARE
running a reasonably vintage of sudo - right?  Assuming you REALLY
have a shell on the server of interest, you only need to match that
machine name (or ALL) ... so confusing why this did not work remotely.
I know you said "via SSH" ... but some folks expect it to work via
httpd/web-based tools ... and in that case, you need to give the
httpd user access to sudo (very carefully BTW!   ;-)
