Two services I just discovered deserve to be blogged about. One is Festoon and the other is Blog Flux. Festoon is a simple add on that works with Google talk and Skype. I haven’t been able to test Festoon with Skype yet but it works brilliantly with Google Talk. What Festoon does is to provide the capability to video conference with both these IMs. Its fast and fun. The video quality is way better than Web Cam with MSN Messenger or Yahoo and its got a lot of really fun effects… Like turning your head into two!

Blog Flux aims to be the complete resource for all bloggers. I don’t know if it succeeds at that yet (considering what an add-on freak I am) but its pretty comprehensive already. The mapstats utility is very interesting and I really like the scramble utility as well. I recommend everyone use Blog Flux.
