IMing With My 7-Year Old


My son has a Gmail account.  Gmail is integrated with the Google instant messenger, Gtalk, so when James sees me online, he likes to chat.

This afternoon, James' cousin told him about this cool video game he discovered online.  Apparently there are aliens and stuff, so James tried to download the free trial.  This led him to some frustration and the following IM exchange while he hacked away at the basement computer and I worked on my laptop upstairs.
