Something fun that Heather noticed online (it was worth giving her a computer! She is very good at researching) is www.gabbly.com. If you are on a website and want to discuss it, just add this sites address in front of the one you're on and you get a little MSN style window so you can chat. No programs to install or anything. Well, I think that's clever.
Now I know what you're thinking - you want to chat about this site right now! Just click this link: http://www.gabbly.com/www.edjakeman.com
