https://www.physicsforums.com/showthread.php?t=98589" my webcam is being silly. its acting like a 2 yr old and freaking out whenever it can't see me. now, i'm sure there must be some logical physics related reason why.... i'm not sure what, (feel free to inform me if you know..) but there are loads of things in life that act like that you know? i'm sure everyone has stories of machines they have to fondle and caress gently in order to work properly. so share share!
