One of our grad students reached the Philippines and ichat-dialed me up when I logged in this evening. After a few tries it worked. She had been downloading some stuff so that got in the way earlier. The audio link was very good and I found out that I got some funding for my museum database project! Every little bit helps so that was good. We lost the connection shortly after and used text which is actually more concise.
She was trying to download Bernard's postfix enabler and was struggling with the connection. So much so she thought it was a 10 MB file. So I hopped over to Bernard's site, downloaded the 1.3MB file and sent it to her via iChat. She grabbed it while I was busy elsewhere. Pretty neat.
