>(sorry about the slow reply this time, I was working in the script adding DebtAngel's feature request from yesterday. it mostly works now, although as usual its pretty ugly. heheheh)

Cool =)
BTW, I added B3 to the character descriptions list =)

>>Actually, in the US, I worked in a computer cafe, doing some tech support and stuff like that. So before I left, I made sure that she had an e-mail address and free access to a computer (usually people have to pay $12 per hour).
>>Still, she's a very inexperienced typer - and while she's getting better, she still only types at around 20wpm. And since the cafe is a public place, there's often people looking at her letter. Which is really disturbing, when you're writing something very personal.
>
>Oh... yeah well thats not going to work really then... do you send letters? Despite the lagtime and stuff, there is something really nice about recieving something handwritten. If you haven't, I'd write her one sometime. Just random thoughts over a few days and stuff. Kim and I used to do that, and it really helped. (I still have all of them)

I haven't done that yet. But I think it's a really good idea. I'm going to send her the gifts I've bought for her anyway, so I might as well include a letter there. It's sort of sad... There's this really nice gold necklace, which I had hoped to give her when I arrived in the US, but since I probably won't get back to the US right now, I'll have to send it =(

In any case, thanks for the suggestion =)

>>Luckily, I'm able to call her fairly often. A couple of times per week. That really helps. I think we were talking for 2 hours the day when I got the refusal. If we hadn't talked, I would probably still be crying back at my grandmother's place... I was really shocked and depressed when I got the refusal. Still, it's just not easy being so far away from someone you really love, especially for such a long time.

>That works... isn't calling that far expensive? But at least you get to talk to her a lot, thats a good thing.

Yeah, it's approximately $0.5 per minute. But I'm willing to pay that, as long as I get to talk to her...

>>As for NetMeeting... What's that?
>
>Netmeeting is an online conferencing tool. If she had a more private computer, you could use it to basically do phone calls over the net for the cost of net access rather then long distance phone calls. If you have cameras, you can do video with it. It also has a shared whiteboard and stuff so you can draw to each other. :-)

Sounds amazing... Too bad she's on a public computer =(

>>In any case, I'm happy that I have someone who understands my situation. Thanks for listening...
>
>thats what I'm here for man. I'm sure you'd do the same if things were reversed (or htis was a couple years ago). :-)

I definitely would. BTW, something like this happened to you too, a couple of years ago?

Again, I really appreciate having someone to talk about this to... It really makes a difference.
