This morning Steve went and bought a new camera to video me while on computer. We have had skype for a while but have had a few hicups with the camera and sound on our laptop. We have been talking for a while about buying a camera to use skype on my computer instead of the laptop and today while he was at the shop, he bought it.

We have a laptop that has a camera installed in it but we were having never ending problems with the sound. I then worked out we could talk through a microphone but found that while I was chatting with people, the internet would suddenly drop off and we would get cut off.

I started using Skype on my computer then without a camera. I could talk to people but they could not see me. Now that we have a camera, I can chat face to face. I love it.

So around midday today, I finally had a chat with a friend online. She could see me and I could see her. We also could both hear each other. It was great. Finally I am all ready for skype and online chatting face to face.

So if you have skype and want to chat sometime look me up on Skype. I am registered as Therese8972.
