Chatting to friends on Skype complete with video webcam feed at their end has convinced me that the time is right to invest in an £8.99 webcam from PCWorld. Mind you, that necessitated buying a larger USB hub, so it has cost slightly more. Especially as Him Behind the Wheel wants a webcam of his own. This means that we can sit in adjacent rooms talking to one another on Skype with video-feed.
Retirement has changed a lot these days.
