speak! the world is listening.
it arrived a tad late, but my li'l bro sent me a webcam for my birthday. of course, the gift was self-serving, as he wanted to be able to talk to me over skype. so the gift was as much for himself as it was for me.
however, you'll not hear me complaining!
so now i have this abso-fraggin-lutely fantabulous Logitech 1.3 megapixel webcam set up on my desk, and Skype is downloaded.
if you don't have it, it's free downloadable VOIP software, and calls made to other Skype users are free. you can even call landlines and cell phones for a modest fee (or pay a monthly fee). it also has text message features, chat, file sharing, and video conferencing.
for the first time in years, i was able to see my li'l bro and talk to him! it was hilariously fun, and the best part is that it's FREE!
i just wanted to post how much fun it is, and to tell everyone to get it if you haven't already. it's so much fun! and great for all those long-distance friends in different time zones, always wondering when someone's free evening or weekend minutes kick in and hoping it won't be too late for whoever you're calling (or if you're the one doing the calling, having to wait until 10pm for those west coast 7pm free evening cell phone minutes to kick in!).
it's fun, it's free. give it a shot!
and if any of you out there ever wanna call me, leave a comment or email me, and i'll send you my Skype username.
