I downloaded skype today. That's the internet telephony program. I called Misty, and the quality was quite good. Sadly, I discovered my new computer doesn't have a built-in microphone, so the conversation was rather one-sided. Which it would have been anyway, given that I got her answering machine both times. It's 12 cents a minute to Egypt, and less than 2 cents to the US, so I'm going to give it a try and see if I can make it work for me. If you want to track me down my username on skype is 'odoketa'. I understand that if you both have the program you can voice chat for free, but you can do that with all the other chat programs too, so I'm not sure why I would add yet another chat program to my list. But cheap phone calls to land lines I like.

Aha! That helps explain it...you were testing out Skype. Sorry the quality to Egypt was crap.
