    I have a webcam (Logitech QuickCam Pro 9000). I mainly use it for video chatting with good friends, and relatives in other countries. It's a great way of keeping in touch. That's one good reason I can think of at the moment.
    Rock the fuck on!

    reason not to ... we're on the verge of a global depression and you can't come up with one good reason to get one without forum help.

    back away from the gadgets.

    If you already have your face (or whatever) plastered all over the net with Facebook or Myspace then the next logical step is to go live via webcam. The damage has already been done.

    On the other hand if you value your anonymity and some protection from internet crazies then don't do it.
    How can you trust anything that bleeds for 3 days every month but doesn't die?

    Good reason: Because you want one and can afford it.

    What kind of birds are you owned by? We have two female budgies (both broody at the moment) two male budgies, a male African Singer (finch) and a pesky male lovebird.

    My user name comes from our finch's name, which is Pippin Piper.

    I love the fact that you spy on your birds!

    I have 3 budgies... Willow & Oliver they are lovers & English and then my little Pippin .

    I also have 1 sun conure, Sunday. And on Saturday we adopted an Umbrella Cockatoo. I'm extra spying on her because it's her first day being left alone.





    I also have 4 little dogs.

    Agreed. Plus, a webcam really impacts on your ability to bullshit. "Oh yeah, really busy day, everything has been going great, got to dash, though, meeting a gang of friends for a mad night out" doesn't have the same effect when they can see that you are sat there in your PJ's with your hair stood on end.

    ^ Sure, but there's nothing saying you have to turn the thing on every time you chat with someone.

    Here's a reason: the person you love is out of the country for over a month and you'd really like to see their face while talking to them.

    And if you're chatting with "real" friends instead of people on the internet just posing as such it doesn't matter if you're sat there in your PJs.

    I have one but rarely use it, but I am camera shy.....
