lookin' good

When I first used WebCams...

...they were still so rare that it was a novelty at best. I ended up meeting folks at random on the net--often all we had in common is that we thought communicating with video over the net was neat. Some of those folks I'm still in touch with, today.

Now we use WebCams regularly with our faraway relatives--Q & N's grandparents in SW VA and Great Aunt in MN, for example.

Do you use a cam? If so, how?
