Skype party

Yesterday, my mom threw a Skype party for
me. She invited many of my best friends to our house and set up a
teleconference with me and my friends. Because Skype does three-way
voice chats, my boyfriend also joined from Dumaguete. It was _so_ much
fun talking with everyone!

It seems to always take us an hour to get over technical difficulties
if we’re using Windows. We tried three different VOIP programs -
Skype, Gizmo Project and Yahoo Messenger – and none of them worked to
satisfaction. After struggling with audio problems and dealing with
consistent crashes, my mom and I decided to go back to Mac and Linux
(respectively).

I haven’t figured out how to get all the webcam stuff working under
Linux (or even if it’s possible for me to view their webcam), but
voice worked pretty well.

That was a terrific, terrific way to start my day. =)

猫は椅子の上にいますか、椅子の下にいますか。 Is the cat on the chair or under the chair?
