Emily has been in Japan for about 5 days now. She's called me twice and we have chatted a whole bunch of times on Windows Messenger.
Last night we found an even better program called Skype. Just go to www.skype.com to download it. The best feature is the voice program. With just a microphone and a computer you can have voice conversations, just like you were on the telephone. And it is completely FREE!
This is the greatest thing ever. Emily has a microphone on her computer, so this morning she talked while I typed. I am going to run out and buy a microphone tonight so that we can keep it on all the time.
