All Skyped Up

I LOVE Skype. I really do.

It allows people (me) to talk (ramble on) and see (in a pixelated way) across long distances (from British Columbia to Florida) for free (free!) to friends and relatives (my fiancee) in a futuristic videophone sort-of-way that was still sci-fi for most of us 20 years ago.

But sometimes it goes bad.

Very bad...

Yikes! I think that's the worst picture of me on the intertubes since this one!

At least the digitallizerated version of me below is more colourful...

Why couldn't you just iChat?

Glen Mullaly said...

Scott: I wasn't familiar with IChat. I just looked into it and it seems that you have to set up accounts with Jabber, Mac.com, AIM or some other provider. Are the benefits over Skype worth it.

BTW: The other computer on these calls is a PC (shhhh, don't tell anyone).

Yipes! That top photo is one mutated frame-grab. You need to make that your FB icon!

The top pic is a glimpse at what Lovecraft would cook up had he lived until 2009. Wow!

Scott: We tried iChat- it wasn't as good picture quality as Skype (when Skype works, which is most of the time).
