You need to refresh your browser, it is changed to your robot. It's probably showing the image stored in the cache.

Hold control and refresh to force it to download the new image.
@DJ might want to set the picture expiration date to some date in the past, I've also had troubles with this.

This is what I use for a live webcam feed on my website:


header('Content-type: image/jpg');

header("Expires: Mon, 26 Jul 1997 05:00:00 GMT\n");
An aside..@Niek ...I am mentally trying to pronounce your name..is it phonetically Neek, or Neck, or Nieek...:) curious minds and thank you for your code!
@Rich thank you too.

It's pronounced like "Neek" with a short ee.

Off topic but kinda the right place to put it, I assume that's for the work experience thing. Have a good time Niek! Enjoy yourself (like that's not going to happen).
Thank you Rich that hold ctrl worked it will come in handy many times lol

Welcome to Canada!

Hoping to meet you while you're here.
Wow that's a awesome opportunity niek.
Hey Niek!(Neek) Well I am really close to EZ Robot Calgary...Canadian close that is...only 14 hours..... If you are coming ALL the way west to Vancouver then I would most welcome you to visit my place (1.5 hours) from Vancouver via ferry...That invitation has gone out to all in the EZ community:) You'd have to learn how to sail and in the evening after 9 we could work on my robot!
Some time in the next year i hope to be back on the island its my home and i miss it
