Real-time Sky Hiatus

The output from my real-time sky cam remains inconsistent. The color of the sky was supposed to set the background color of this blog... but I'm having second thoughts.

I was expecting shades of blue, but ended up with yellows and browns... assaults on the eyes that are too much to bear. Until I can muster a better color-sensing solution, I'm returning the blog background to its original light-gray. In the mean time, the sky camera will continue to send its uninspired color values up to Pachube every minute.

And so, failure: The whole idea was to lighten up and relinquish some aesthetic control to an unknowing third party. It was more than I could handle. For shame.
