    Well, I got my iSight yesterday and I have nobody to chat with!!!! So I thought I would start a thread of bored iSighters out there that wanna chat. I actually wanna try to get up to a 3 or 4 person chat.

    AIM: bufflilbug

    Post your screen name and lets get to chatting!

    (If there is another thread like this, I'm sorry, I didn't see anything like it)

    I don't have an iSight but I am curious to see (in front of my own eyes) how good the quality is in one of these chat sessions. Is there anyway we can connect if I don't have a cam?

    If not, oh well, I'm just bored at work. :D

    My screen name is "itas0r".

    I'll video chat, but just to warn you, I don't talk, lol. But if you wanna try it out, I'll connect with you and move my camera around and stuff. O_O.

    I was gonna start a thread like this at some point. My AIM is Jackus01892. Remember - you need a dual g4, or a g5, or a core duo, to participate in multi way video chat.

    No you don't -- you just need one of those to host. I have Powerboost though, so I can host.

    I thought it was everyone - I will check. I remember being heartily pissed off when they announced it, as I had an iBook.. I'll check.

    You sure? I was fairly certain. :/

    EDIT: You're right.

    I might be up at some time too...it'd be fun to do a multi-way MR iChat AV. :) My AIM is over there *points to the left*.

    I guess I am capable of hosting, too. :)

    I owe someone on MR an iChat already... I've just been having a rough few weeks. So to that someone, I apologize. :(

    We need to arrange a time. I am fairly flexible for the next... 10 hours. I can't host however.. slowish ADSL line.

    You have to use unofficial MSN clients, I can't remember the name of them... aMSN is one I think? But yeah, it can be done.

    video chat

    Hi, I'm around for video chat for the next little while. Someone with a more powerful machine will have to host because I'm in the kitchen with the PowerBook G4. I'm baking a cake for a friend's birthday party.

    added everyone

    hi,

    I added everyone who's posted their screen names. Mine is my dot-mac account, which is tvwriter (different than what's shown under my avatar to the left).

    So feel free to drop me a multi-user video chat invite if you see my camera icon. I'd like to see the 3 or 4 way window on my screen. :)

    I have used mine with Mercury, too, and been very happy. :) It isn't AV chatting, though. Text + video. :(
