Tip of the Week

Some voice chat services let you use voice chat with many people at the same time. This type of voice chat can get rather cacophonous, but it can also be fun. Some people lose their inhibitions in a voice chat room and decide to serenade the other chatters with their favorite song, or regale the room with poetic musings. Most voice chat services allow you to ignore others on an individual basis, so if you're in a voice chat room with someone who's talking over everyone else in a manner you find annoying, you can simply hit ignore and no longer have to contend with them. Voice chat on the internet isn't quite up to regular telephone conference call standards yet, so it's not a very practical solution for important group calls. But for casual conversation with others you spend time with online, it can be a great addition to your chat experience. Keep in mind you'll probably need to explicitly adjust your firewall settings to use voice chat, and others participating in voice chat will see your IP address.
