Hey anyone....?

does anyone that regularly gets on Yahoo Messenger have a webcam? My mom (the few of you that have heard about her from me know what I think of her...) seems to be under the impression that one cannot see other people on a webcam unless that person also has a webcam hooked up as well.

Like "person A" can't see "person b's" webcam transmission on "person A's" computer unless "person A" has a webcam of his/her own hooked up.

She asked me to prove it. The only way I can prove it is if I can arrange for someone with a webcam to get on Yahoo Messenger at a time when I can have her back her to see that I'm right.

My parents think that too. I think they think it's like a two-way mirror type thing. My mum will not understand, no matter how many times you try to explain, that you only talk to people on MSN if you have their address. She thinks it's some huge chat room with everyone in the world who has a computer is on and can talk to you on.

I have a webcam but only on MSN, I'll be home on the computer on Saturday for a bit.

There's this book which my ex recommended me to read (he feels the same way about his mum as you do) and you might like it too. It's called Vernon God Little by someone Pierre. And he says that what he says about the knife is very apt. Dunno, kinda made me think of you.
