Anyone here ever use Chatroulette? I feel like chatting with a random person. Well... I just tried. After a bunch of guys immediately passing on me, one guy sounded like he was reading prose, but kept the same inflection as I tried to talk with him. I had a hard time hearing, and it didn't seem like we would have a good conversation, so I ended the session. Chat42.online was a bit better. Text-only, met a couple of people, but most there want to talk dirty.
IRC is great for chat-only random person conversations.
That's a good idea. I should get into it, that way I can also participate in another channel that I've just been reading for a while.
