I have ICQ, MSN and Yahoo, but really only use my Yahoo the last 2 years.

I have family in Alaska, Tennessee, Texas, N.Carolina and Germany, so it is a great way to get together.

I also have 3 colleagues that I talk with all the time, throwing ideas back and forth to each other, having them check my work, I check their's. It's wonderful to be able to have that 'network' since I work from home. Luckily, so do they, in New York, Ohio and Germany even!

Craig...

I remember GEnie well. "Those were the good ole days"? I was the Sysop of the Mac Forum there for about three years and I met my Sig Other in the GEnie chat room. Yep.. Lots of good memories.

dee dee,

indeed, those were the good old days. i spent WAY too many hours (and money) on GEnie and Compuserve. 300 baud (mostly) and 1200 baud (once in a while for 'high speed' gaming), dial up modems. lol. i was mostly a gamer back then and 'Air Warrior' on GEnie was one of my passions. that was one amazing game for 1200 baud!

and if you really want to date my online experience, there was a commodore 64 network around those times as well. i forget the name now, but it was a dedicated C-64 network. cutting edge

and i could really get retro on you by talking about mainframe networking in the early 70's

The creator of CuSeeme

Wrote a program called iVisit. (ivisit.com) which has excellent video and audio quality. I use this primarily to an overseas recipient. I'll also use Yahoo Messenger for Mac.

here's one i got recently that you all might want to check out. it's called 'iVisit'. it will do instand messages, voice over ip, file sharing/exchange, chat room, and even video conferencing. google 'iVisit'.

doesnt seem to have much traffic on it yet. and i've only used it once to check it out, but seems fairly beefy. and, there's a free version, which seems pretty full-featured. do be a little careful with it, however. it seems some folks are using it for nude web-camming

I have the paid version of iVisit

Video drops after an hour on the free version and is reinstated after 30 minutes of quitting the program. Audio has no limitations.

"Nude web-camming" happens in any widely-used video chat program on the planet.
