The Oregonian is reporting that this spring PGE will be imploding the cooling tower at the Trojan Nuclear Plant this spring. Who wants to go watch?

Any advice on CCD wireless or usb cameras?

I keep seeing these remote control cameras forsale at Fry's with full outdoor casing and it has me thinking that now the cabin has DSL, a small webserver with a camera so you can check on the beach conditions might be fun. But the camera would be facing west and getfull sun light in it's face in the afternoon/sunset. I know on older usb cameras, direct sun light would burn out the ccd. Are there any any reasonably priced cameras made to take this abuse? What would I look for in the product marketting to tell me if a camera can take looking into the sun?
