Over recent days we have seen a woman giving birth over the net.  Pity we
can't get a netcam of the titanum.  Far more interesting than watching
someone that you don't know giving birth - and a much rarer event as well.

Failing that, the idea appeals to me of converting the time lapse photos to
gifs, then animating them.  If nobody else wants to do it I am happy to if I
can get hold of the pics.
