Hi all,

After a number of years just lying in desk drawer my old Logitech spherical 
webcam died. So, I'm looking for a new one. It's not that I use it a lot. 
My wife will be heading out of province to our son's place next month to be 
there for the birth of our first grandson. The plan was to use a webcam to 
send back pictures later (not on the day of, of course but a week later). 
Anyhow I need to replace the old with a new webcam. The last time I used 
the old webcam it was hooked up to a Windows XP system. I've since retired 
that machine, along with the retirement of three FreeBSD machines, leaving 
me with a few servers and my FreeBSD laptop. I'm hoping to use the webcam 
with Pidgin with MSN. Can anyone suggest a brand and model? It needs to 
have good image quality and needs to work with FreeBSD 9.0. Any suggestions?
