    Let's try out this video chat stuff. Post you address (if you are comfortable with that), and we'll see how it works!

    well ive played with it all day and its been fun. i havent done it as much because i dont have a mic on my powermac and i dont feel like hooking up my camcorder. ive been doing it all on my powerbook, but i dont use my powerbook when im home. ill do it more when my isight comes in later this week so i can play on the powermac.

    my AIM screen name is icetraxx

    It would be cool to have some more machead buddies on AIM... All I have is audio chat right now... but the new iChat audio chat is amazing! GREAT JOB APPLE! (works as well as a phone). :D (I have cable; don't have a Firewire Vid Cam so no video)

    Chris :cool:

    hmmmm.....

    hey icetraxxG5,

    are you only on audio because you connect via dial up? I'm wondering becasue all I have right now is a 56K dial-up (come on DSL in my area....). If so, how good is the sound quality....?

    Your family owns a store that sells macs, right? Here's what you can do... Setup iSight's on all of the display computers, and put instructions on how they can talk to each other, or talk to an employee at the desk live... It would be really cool, IMHO..

    I would post, but I already have int he past and I think it would cause more bad than good. I usually have AIM on, but I'm rarely at the computer. I just have it on the setting where all IM's get forwarded to my cell phone and I can't respond.

    BTW - vniow, A friend of yours sent me a couple of messages that went kind of like this:

    them: hello??!?

    (I couldn't respond, i was in class on my cell phone)

    them: is this vniow?

    them: oh no, sorry.

    them: I am using up your cell phone messages aren't I?

    them: caching

    them: caching

    them: caching

    hehe, I got a kick out of reading that in class. I forgot his/her name, sorry.

    Re: hmmmm.....

    I have Cable and the audio is pretty good quality... It hiccups sometimes and that gets annoying.

    mine's in my profile.

    Since I don't have any friends...I mean since I don't have any friends that chat, this will be a nice way to actually use this.

    I'm on cable, no vid, audio only - assuming it works

    No video, nothing faster than dial-up...

    Don't care for the iChat AV audio portion. I'll use a phone instead.

    AIM username: don't message me. (That's not the real one. Profile...)

    not sure when iSight will be in japan...will get one when released - I guess I could try my Sony DV, but if it works i may not be motivated to get an iSight!!

    have audio though...
