Week 25: We Have a WebCam!

We Have a WebCam!, originally uploaded by Visions By Vicky.

Okay so this isn't technically a photo that I took and it's not really a Friday photo either since it was snapped by the webcam at 12:02am on Saturday morning.

It is, however, my photo of the week for this week because I'm finally testing out the webcam that I got for Christmas! It's a Logitech QuickCam Pro 9000 and so far it seems to work just fine on our home computer. My next step is to test out Skype here and then I'm going to try it at school. My hope is to use this to Skype at school next year. Keep your fingers crossed that it will work on the older equipment that we have there.

I can't believe you are just now hooking up a webcam! :-) What exactly is Skype?

Skype lets you make free calls - audio & video - over the Internet to other Skype users. There are pay options too that let you call landlines and cell phones.
