>sorry about being slow again, I'm currently adding the autologon code, while trying to make it at least semi-secure. Its very difficult, and requires a total rewrite of the entire login script (which was really old anyway).

Don't worry about slow replies, I'm not much faster myself =)

>>>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 =)
>
>Yeah... letters are great. Gifts are good too, even if you can't give them in person. Its kinda weird hearing me say it, considering how into email and everything that I am, but when your writing to someone like a girlfriend, letters are a more tangible thing then an email is, so its a good idea to send them now and then, even if they do lag horribly.
>
>>>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...
>
>Ouch! I ho[pe you have a good source of income over there.

Well, my father runs a firm, so we're presuming that it's business talk. That way, we don't pay full tax off it, so practically, the government pays 67% of our phone bills =)

As for the income... Well, I'm working as a RPG programmer for the AS/400, for my fathers firm. I'm only 16, so I can't get paid more than 15000dkr (the equivalent of $2000) per month. Usually, good RPG programmers get paid more than that. Still, since it's my family, and I'm living by them while I'm in Denmark, I won't take money for my work, my pay is just transferred to my bank account, where I'm transferring it to the firm's account. That way, we're paying less tax =)

>>>>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 =(
>
>Yeah, that makes it pretty useless, it rules otherwise. Another way is to send emails with little Mp3 or Purevoice files attached of you talking, kinda like voice emails. The nice thing about those formats is that they're small enough that you can actually send something decent sized through email without crippling the person recieving it.
>
>Of course on a public terminal that doesn't work either. We gotta get her an old Pentium 100 or something. :)

Hmm.. That would actually be cool. The only problem is that she has pretty much no knowlegde of computers, so if anything bad happened, she would be completely stuck =(

>
>>I definitely would. BTW, something like this happened to you too, a couple of years ago?
>
>Kim (aka Narri) lives in Boston. I live basically in Toronto. Give or take a bit, thats around 1000km away. Its not nearly as far as Denmark, but its far enough that I only got to see her a couple times a year usually for a week or two at a time. We were together for 3 years, so thats 3 years of that.
>
>So I do have an idea of what its like to be far apart, although not across an ocean. Thats just harsh. :(

I am impressed. Stories like yours really give me more hope... I really feel better now =)

BTW, I don't know if I'm getting too personal here, but... You're saying that you "were" together for 3 years. Does that mean that you've split up now?
