Life as seen through my lens…

MSN Messenger 7 is great!

Tips for a geographically dispersed family #1: Keeping in touch!

I’m sure that most MSN users will already be aware of this, but MSN 7 rocks!

It does video (webcam) and audio chat, you can send little sketches and pictures to one another, you can share photo albums, it does all sort of stuff, and it’s FREE! Being 5000+ miles (and 8 hours) apart from my family, I’ve found it invaluable for keeping in touch and keeping the phone costs down.

The video/audio chat works really well – it’s as clear as a phone call, very quick, and on a reasonable speed broadband connection the video (webcam) response is very good!

In fact, my wife has commented that she sees more of me like this than she did when I was over in the UK with them!

If you’re not already a user, go check out http://imagine-msn.com/messenger/en-us/ – it’s really helped us keep in touch!
