Moments of Wonderful - …rather than a lifetime of nothing special. A diabetes blog.

I like to Tok

One of my favorite D-buddies e-mailed the other day about a website he found that is like Skype on steroids! Anyone with a webcam and a microphone can join a video chat room.

So George, Scott, and I planned a time to test it out. Once we figured out that it actually worked at the quality was good, we sent out an ‘all-call’ on Twitter to get more of our friends in.

As George noted in his post about the night, at some point during the almost 3 hours I was in there, I was joined by Rachel, Windy, Kelly, Ninnifur, Major Bedhead, Cherise, Jaimie, Amy, tmana, Landileigh, Tim, and Mike.

Unfortunately, unless you were wearing headphone and had a decent microphone, there was quite an echo. Which brings me to my loser move of the night. I got out my Flip camera to film our conversation, but I forgot I had my headphones in.

So you get to hear me, and see everyone else!

P.S. Save me some embarrassment and don’t read the comments on George’s post too closely! 🙂

    Hey Sara and gang,

    That looks like a blast! Landileigh told me how much fun she had! I’m sorry I missed it. I definitely want to join in next time!! I’ve never done DTF nor Skyped with any D-OCers!! Thanks for posting it, in all its blurry loveliness.

    🙂 Amylia

    If you do not have a fast Internet connection, it may stop and go a bit, but even on my u-Verse last night, it worked out. My friends ad I used this on our Macs (Me, Seamonkey browser, Rob Safari4, another Firefox.) little trouble.

    It was so awesome – I had a BLAST! It was very neat getting to meet folks on this that I have not yet met in real life. I feel like I know many of you better now than before, which is really cool.

    Definitely count me in for the next ones!
