    By the way, I see that My image is "reversed" in Photo Booth. Is that going to happen in Skype? (and/or do you know if the live image in Photo Booth can be reversed?)

    Reversed? As in what it looks like in a mirror?

    Think about it for a second....

    In the Photo Booth the preview is mirrored, however the picture taken is not (providing the Edit | Auto Flip New Items is ticked). Skype and FaceTime - the same: preview is mirrored, but video transmitted is not.

    OK - Good! So, when my daughter and I Skype, each of us is seeing a "non-mirror image" of the other...am I correct?

    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
