Create a semi-failsafe automated webcam system

Most likely you don't need a haxie for this hint because the iSight is controlled by the Webcam app. iChat's restriction is coming from the fact that the image is mirrored on the fly when you look in your own camera, so it looks like you are watching a mirror, because this is done on the fly it takes some processing power, hence the 600 Mhz minimum. If I recall well the haxie disables that, freeing the CPU for iChats chat functions, thus enabeling slower cpu's. The correspondant sees you normally at all times, not mirrored.


The box said, Windows 95 or better, so I bought OS X.

You're right -- you don't need a haxie for the original hint. But to run iChatUSBWebcam, referenced above (which allows the iSight to be used "live" on sub-600 mhz G3s) you do. That's what I was responding to, so I'm sorry for the confusion.
