A Woopra Chat About Excel

by Gregory on February 23, 2011

Woopra Desktop AppI use the Woopra desktop app to view live visitors to this WordPress blog. Visitors will see a Woopra window lurking about when I’m logged into my (free) Woopra account. One option is to initiate a chat session with me.

My first chat happened the other day. The chat notice startled me, but I quickly recovered and was able to interact with a visitor.

(Bold and color are my additions for clarity)

The strange thing I just noticed is that some of my replies have periods at the end. In a chat session no less!
