Common sense isn't.
After a few years in the wind and sun, the Prism Kites windmill was retired at the end of 2004. As shown at right, the blades were faded and shredded, in contrast with the clean and colorful original shown in the photos at left and below left.
The Windmill (window) web cam was also retired in late summer 2003. A couple old photos are below.

This page did not automatically reload, so hitting Reload was required to update the image. A new image was usually uploaded every 10-12 minutes or so. It's usually a pretty quiet neighborhood. Between ms windoz, the webcam software and cable modem, the camera regularly went "off-line" for hours at a time. So, the picture was often old or blank. As seen at above right, the last photo was uploaded in August 2003. The previous version of this page is here.
Here is a page with images from several web cams.
|Quote of the moment|
|It is said that Napoleon lost the battle of Waterloo because he forgot his infantryhe staked too much upon the more spectacular but less substantial calvary. The present administration in Washington provides a close parallel. It has either forgotten or it does not want to remember the infantry of our economic army. These unhappy times call for the building of plans that rest upon the forgotten, the unorganized but the indispensable units of economic power, for plans like those of 1917 that build from the bottom up and not from the top down, that put their faith once more in the forgotten man at the bottom of the economic pyramid.|
|~ FRANKLIN D. ROOSEVELT, governor of New York, radio address, Albany, New York, April 7, 1932.The Public Papers and Addresses of Franklin D. Roosevelt, 19281932, pp. 62425 (1938). ~|
