Hi Carla,

I volunteer at a charity shop and many toys are donated. One day a cute little plush toy dog was donated which a long wire protruding from its bum. The wire ended in a USB connector. The other women were dumbfounded. I took one look at it and burst into laughter. I'd never actually seen a "nanny-cam" before. The shiny black nose was the camera lens. I tried it on the shop computer (running Linux of course) and it works!

If you don't have any failures then you're not trying hard enough.
