hey yall, I say we all agree on a voice chat program. Vick, Tara, and I have tried several. I want to suggest this one: www.skype.com this way we can have a weekly chat "get together" to talk to each other about crab related stuff, or to just waste time. only bad thing is that you have to have a microphone for it. Me and my family use this program to stay in touch with each other, and so long as you only download it from www.skype.com , there is no danger of getting a virus or other nonsense on your system.
