Anyone that uses CCleaner as a portable app should not be affected since nothing is installed on your computer. In other words... no malware payload.

If you have a AT&T service it's a no-brainer. Verizon or another carrier is a definite PIA and is not recommended as Ralph points out.

In our group... Pete and I who both have AT&T phone service transferred to the new phone without problems. I have 4 other friends with AT&T who purchased this phone without problems.

The moral of this story... read the fine print.

I spoke at the May 2017 meeting regarding bootable OS's from a USB flash drive.

I carry these USB flash drives with me. So when the occasion arises, I have a personalized, secure, bootable operating system.

Alan, Is it possible that the streaming is live during the day and recorded playback at night? This is the first time that I have viewed the above three websites at night, as I thought there would be nothing to see in the darkness. I was quite surprised to see illuminated imagery. During the day, however, the Sun seems to be in approximate sync with the time, especially at sunset. Avila Beach is Surfline also. When you click to full screen, a brief message states that you are on Surfline.com.

It does look like they are live streaming during the day and post up a daylight recording at night. I have found some interesting things going on at the top of the Inn at Avila Beach (via SurfLine) at night!!!

Three more very nice views.


Cayucos Pier from the Shoreline Inn: http://www.cayucosshorelineinn.com/beach-cam.php

Piedras Blancas Lighthouse and environs:  http://www.piedrasblancas.org/webcam.html

From the Inn at Avila Beachhttp://hotelsavilabeach.com/

These are not live streams but recordings. My links are live streams.

I am also a subscriber to http://www.surfline.com/ I use this app on my iPhone and iPad many times throughout the day. I use to have a subscription to outdoortheatre which sold out to Surfline. My membership was moved over to Surfline. I was also grandfathered in for a 50% lifetime rate of $34.95/year (Normally $69.99). This gives me access to many live cameras in HD, full screen and without ads. I am also able to download past 10 minute streams from different days.
