I'm in another forum that has a ventrilo server ( www.techonvent.net ), and so far, it's been a great way to (literally) talk to people. All you need is a microphone and a broadband connection. Basically, everyone connects to a server and has a conference call. It’s great to talk to people you’ve seen on the boards, and they turn out to be a completely different person than you thought they were before (usually for the better). I think it could be a great extension to TPF, and a lot of fun becuase it doesn't necessarily mean that we need to talk about photography, and it's alot more personal. I’m just wondering how many people could be interested in seeing something like this happen.
