It is all setup again – as of Saturday – and should be taking pictures. Here is a shot of what it looks like now. All of the tomato plants have been removed and the new ones will be planted soon.
Something that started to concern me was Daylight Savings time. This would be a problem if the camera changed time and then the power went out. The raspberry pi would pull the new time and it would be an hour off of what it was before. I contacted Canon about this potential issue. And they tried to sell me one of their newer cameras that has this feature. But they said that the Canon Powershot A510 does not have this feature. I could not find this option on the SX100 either. However this is a good thing as it means I am safe from having to worry about that. It will definitely be something to think about in the future however.
I changed the way the scripts were written and so I will post them and the updated crontab hopefully sometime early next week.
