Big Brother’s eyes are everywhere thanks to remote cameras watching us 24/24. You can spot them at street corners and hanging from metallic arms on almost every building these days. Webcams are robotic eyes capturing our lives in frames. Thankfully, it’s not a Truman Show just yet. BigSister written by Massimiliano Scarano is a small tool that allows you to monitor webcams from all over the world. Bigsister for AmigaOS 4.1 employs an intelligent algorithm to auto-detect and auto-adjust the refresh rate – this will work for most, though not all, cams. This prevents you from downloading the same image over and over again. BigSister is a small but efficient and reliable software application designed to display all the image formats supported by the DataTypes system.
