Free Video Messenger Software for NCSU

submitted by btreat on Thursday, May 20 at 8:06 PM

SightSpeed is a company founded by NC State alumnus Brad Treat ('94). They just released an upgrade to their award winning software for the PC and Mac and are offering it free to anyone with a confirmed ncsu.edu email address.

Normally a software subscription is $5/month, but Brad is offering it for free to the Wolfpack community in order to build up the user base and to get real-world feedback.

This isn't spyware or spamware or any of that sort of thing. The deal is legitimate, and the SightSpeed software really works well. It's like the free IM programs on steroids. Take it for a test drive and let them know what you think.

Company website: www.sightspeed.com

Feeling like a dork? Then prove it, by talking with a headset on to your computer. Then no doubts will remain.

Long distance costs money. Phones are just as annoying. At least when you use a computer, you're more likely to be away from other people.

That happened to me the first time I registered.. You should get a confirmation email, click that link and it might take a day or so to change the status.
