The Old Farmer’s Almanac webcam has been a longtime and surprisingly popular feature of, to the point where readers passing through rural Dublin, NH will often stop in the parking lot and set themselves up in front of the webcam for a special guest-starring role.

To enhance this experience, we’ve developed a system that allows visitors to text their email address to a special mobile number to start a the recording of a 10-second video clip by the webcam; this clip is then emailed to them for posterity.

Here’s my colleague Lou coaching some visiting Finnish tourists, geocaching in the area, how to use the new system.
