WebCam? Do you have/want one?

  1. Another thread has me wondering. Do you have a web cam and what do you use it for?


    I have one, used to use it to stay in touch with family through netmeeting, now it mostly collects dust.

    We had one that came with this computer. We used it once to make a video of hubby and son mooning it, and then we emailed it to MIL. After that we never used it. It's in a drawer somewhere.

    Honestly, when I'm at the computer, it's because I don't feel like dealing with the real world, so I'm in my jammies, hair not combed. Why would I want people seeing that? :chuckle

    I know alot of people with quite a bit of family that live far away, and they use it as you do Bob. But I'd really probably just get into trouble with it!

    I have one that was given to me as a birthday present. It is facing a bookcase. When I first got it, I used it through netmeeting with family also. Then it sort of lost it's novelty and I don't use it.
    Oh - I took my avatar picture with it....

    I have one and use it all the time. I use it through netmeeting with my family, since we are scattered all over the place. We love it. The kids sometimes use it while they instant message their friends.

    Hubby said it made him nervous. I told him he watches too much X-Files.

    Yup. This is why I'm not allowed to own one, at least that's what the judge said...:stone
