Surfcam image updates: These typically occur every 2-3 seconds, depending on such factors as network traffic and web server load. However, once every week or so, there are no image updates for a period of 30 minutes, the result of a combination of network congestion, file transfer protocol limitations, and web server timeout settings. So, if the image is not updating, check back in 30 minutes.
