Instant Messenger rocks

As an added bonus this Christmas, we are able to chat with our son in Iraq thanks to modern technology. We are using Trillian on our side, while he is using Yahoo's standar client. The base provides an area with laptops connected to the internet for all the troops in his area to share.

They have them installed with various instant messenger clients as well as some with web cams. Till today we were unable to receive the webcam stuff, but we just upgraded to Trillian Pro.

Anyway, it's significantly better than the random letters that might have been exchanged in days of old. Real time rocks!

Merry Christmas and thanks to all those geeks who just couldn't let go of the idea of chatting with friends in far away places.
