Time for a few quick words, nothing special,,,,just words.
I have a friend interstate, (been mates for 45 years) and for a while now we've been able to chat, using the Skyp... program, which in itself is fantastic. This pal and I would only talk a couple of times per year,,,via the electric telephone (sic), but since he has had a computer,,,,,and ADSL connection, we can talk for hours,,,,,and each week for almost no $$$. This has to be good for us,,,and anyone using the same method to talk long distance,,,,,,and I mean 1000km distance. As a bonus we can also use our webcams to see each other's ugly faces,,,,,,something that comes with getting older.
Anyway, we had a good "chin-wag",,,,that's Aussie-speak for talking,,,,,for 2½ hours,,,,,can't do that on the telephone!
