I'd really like to get it working, but I have less than two months to go here and things will really start to pick up as we break camp. Plus, the networking guys are real anal about security and usage.
When I first got here we could use AIM, YM, MSN, and of course the army internet chat (kind of like AIM express). Now they cut those out, with the exception of AKO IM (armychat), and blocked
all the ports except 8080. Kind of sucks because the rotation before us used webcams; bastages!
I suppose if I didn't have ANY internet at all then I'd try to work something out.
This is a blessing in all honesty. It's been awhile since I communicated with anyone from the outside world, besides my friends and family of course. So, this makes me happy enough!
