Webcam woes

This morning I accompanied Les and Brenda on a trip to Alcossebre to take Ray's car to his place and visit El Camino drop in centre for an hour of meeting and greeting. Afterwards, I took Les and Brenda home, and spent an hour trying to get Skype working on Les' desktop computer. Restoring sound wasn't a problem, but getting a standard Logitech web cam to work was the stumbling block, as Windows 7 couldn't find the correct drivers. Things like that have become so much easier to achieve in recent years. It was most annoying not to complete a relatively simple task. 

The rest of the day was spent cooking, writing a sermon for Sunday, talking on Skype and catching up on the Paralympics. I'm thankful Skype works so well on my little laptop. It's such an invaluable resource for keeping in touch when family and friends are spread far and wide.
