    I was wondering how many on here is capable with their computer to using Skype. I am setup and use it sometimes to talk to a few friends throughout the country.
    It is almost like talking on the phone but you get to see the other person live and can talk to each other live.
    It would be interesting to me to use this form of communication and just chat.
    There is another program called OOVOO that a group can meet and talk together.

    Let me know if anyone is interested?

    I'd certainly be interested! It would be a lot of fun to have a group chat or something. If I'm driving I can point the camera out the windshield and yall can go for a ride in my truck lol

    That would be a lot of fun just to see where you are and what is out the window you are looking at.
    Let me know if you get set up and we can chat.

    I used Skype years ago to keep in touch with my family while I was in Holland but the family weren't keen on it at all.

    But strangely I was thinking of setting it up again after talking to my (X) brother in law a couple of days ago, although his sister and I are now divorced he doesn't want to lose contact with me, and to be honest neither do I but we were discussing the cost of phone calls which I really can't afford now, so I think Skype would be a good solution for both of us, I have to put that to him because it didn't occur to me until our conversation was over.

    It might be nice to chat on Skype, it could certainly be a help when trying to explain difficult stuff and even physically show stuff too.

    Having said all that, anyone outside of Scotland might have difficulty trying to understand me, lol

    It uses your email address and I think we might could be able to chat across the water. Not sure about that but it would be worth looking into.

    You can definitely chat across the see, although connection woukd depend on stability of internet on both sides, I know if we have bad weather here connection strength can drop but I can't say I've ever had a problem here or in Holland.

    Get it set up on your end and we might later try it out. I have to leave home for a while to take the mut to the vet for some shots but I will be back in about a couple of hours. Let me know if you get setup. Don't know if you could stand looking a my mug while we chat. :eek::eek:

    I'll set it up on my tablet for now, but I'll also check the world clock to see how it goes with time differences so as plan conversations that suit.

    I know how cool it was to see and hear Herb on his YouTube videos, so I reckon it will be fun, certainly a lot more fun than what goes on around here normally:)

    No you would just show all the lot lizards to everyone LMAO.
    While I have skype here at work we have no cameras on the systems for video . But this may be a great ideal to talk with one another.

    Man, it would be great to be able to see something being done or if someone is having a problem with their brush or painting to be able to see what they are talking about. Also, I like seeing lot lizards. Don't have a use for them anymore but I can look. lollollollol

    I also think it can be setup on a cellphone but haven't used it in a couple of years and I do think they have upgraded their program.

    Definitely can be set up on a smart phone but I have it now on my tablet for the bigger screen, if I need to show anything substantial at any time I can set up on my laptop which obviously has a built in camera.
