Papal Smoke Cam

Want to be among the first to see the Vatican's smoke signals indicating the election (or not) of a new pope, yet aren't in Rome or don't have access to cable TV? Then watch MSNBC's smoke cam, which is trained on the all-important chimney.

Most of the time it's like watching the proverbial paint dry, but if you catch it at the right moment, you'll see history in the making. Microsoft Internet Explorer and Media Player required.
