Launch squid

It's good to have geeky friends.

Dave and I have been playing with SquidCam a video conferencing program. It's a kissing cousin to the webcam tools I used back in the mid 90s.

Is it any better? Well, I can connect my real video camera to it, so the adjustments are a bit easier to make, and in these days of high bandwidth, we can send pretty decent video resolution at an acceptable framerate but at the expense of audio. If we want to hear one another clearly, we have to drop the video quality down, as pictured above.

So it's far from perfect. But it does let me hang out with Dave while he eats dinner and watches DVDs. And that's pretty fun. Launch squid!

Do you wear your furry bits every day!?

Just about. I love the furry bits. They are warm and pretty.

Thats cool! Let's schedule a time convienent to both sides of the world and meet up. i've got a video camera, OS X and broadband too :) I can show you Evan up close and personal :)

Yipe. All the possible moments of perfect lighting and somewhat more reasonable posture, and you pick *this* to capture?

On the other hand, there *is* something to be said for lurking in the shadows...
