Webcam

I posted this over at support, and they suggested I bring it here.

I own a webcam, and have a program that works basically like this:

It takes a picture every 6 seconds, and FTP's it to my website (senisub.com), and replaces the picture (webcam32.jpg) every 6 seconds, and I have a webcam page that refreshes every 6 seconds, what I wanted to do, was use that picture as my icon, so basically my icon would change every six seconds.

What I was wondering was if you could make it so you could host your icons off site, that is, host my icon on my webserver, and just have my livejournal point to the picture (http://senisub.com/webcam/webcam32.jpg), I'm sure there are some issues with that but I think it would work out, and it would take some pressure off the LJ servers and allow people to use hi-res images rather than the limited size ones we can use now. Just an idea, thanks.
