(Imagine monitoring all 10 hours of service that goes into your car over say a week!)

    But it is really very cool! Really cool idea!

    Oh, what format is this in? if it could convert to mp3, it could perhaps upload audio via gprs? (would be itneresting in combi with video, or images, in case your car gets taken)

    It's recorded in WAV. 2 hours = 250MB, ish

    I've got a 120GB HDD, so I wasn't worried!

    I've got a decent OCX for recording, I would rather record EVERYTHING as I don;'t trust the motion detectors 100%.

    I'm working on another project for internet communication and have code for uploading webcam pictures to a remote website. This could work alongside that very easily.

    Okay here it is. Mr. T Skin for AccessControl, also stevie not my msg above, i edited it.

    And on that topic. Maybe the audio files could be broken down into a bunch of files. Ie, record for 30 mins. Then start a new file. Then while the new file is being recorded, you could convert the first file to mp3 in the background. You could make this thing record or weeks at a time if you wanted.

    Hey, stevie,

    Is there a way to set the font color? If not, maybe for release 2.0, shouldn't be too trying. Thanks again. I'm definately going to use this. It would take alot of work, but it would be cool if you could compress and upload the audio files to a server whenever wifi is available. I figure you get your car stolen. This might save the day, you never know. This would be alot of work, though, more than I would be willing to attempt. Great program. Thanks
    Yep I can sort changing font colours etc.

    I was thinking for the font background color. Right now, it overlays the skin with a white block.

    Mp3 compression would be amazing, but not immediately necessary.
