Video call? Oh if only!
I have always been a keen MSN user and have had no troube using the MSN video chat feature. The latest update of MSN indicates a "merge" with Skype, forcing me to have a Skype account (oh goodie!). So I tried my brand spanking new Skype system to have a much needed catch up with my long distance boyfriend. Skype was VEEERRRYYYY slow. Infact I had to cease all other activities in order for it to open properly. Then came the much awaited video call...... or an attempt at it. I saw more "slow connection" "connection error" messages than I did of my partners face. The connection was the worst I have ever experienced. I decided to close down the amazing new Skype and recall via the MSN messenger - which suprisingly had no trouble what so ever delivering a successful video call. My mysterious connection problems seemed to disappear, so the problem is with Skype. Not a great first experience really. It was like using dial up!
