Info on Skype(I haven't used it, but I've had the program since before this thread). It's based on P2P technology, and was made by the same people that made Kazza.

As soon as I get Linux working on the internet, I'll try to log on to MSN(well, with another program).

Seems like you're talking to an inanimate object? That's how it seems to me, but I talk on the phone anyways(but still not often).

It's more like this problem (http://www.postudios.com/blog/forum/index.php?board=37;action=display;threadid=1236;start=20#msg50184) for me. :P

Hahahaha omg people! We're not phone ogres you know! Its just like MSN, you leave it on and when you have something to say you say it rather than typing. Its not like there's mega pressure to talk! Honestly just give it a try first and if it doesn't work for you then fine, but it'd be fun to get some convo's going :)

Oh and I always sound dorky when talking to people on the phone lol I think everyone does if you don't know the person that well.

look...me and alex just leave it on! he usually tries to scare me by ringing me..it usually works as the volume is on quite loud!
anyway we usually just strat saying something weird while the webcam also runs, so its double the fun! And i know most of u will also appreciate weird convos!  :P

but i do agree about phones...but guys, be proud of me! Yesterday i rang the limo company and got my limo AND the dentist and got my appointment, so woo go me!
does any1 else find them self dialling really slow wen they dont wanna ring sum1, then at the last mintue u press the last digit dead quick and its like aaaaaaaaaaah adrenalin rush? or is that just me being too hyper about phones?

My right side hearing is not as good as my left side's hearing but since I use the phone on my left side that's not a problem.

Anyone tried Skype on a 56k? I've had the program, before this thread was started. Although I haven't "called" anyone, so has anyone here tried it?
Title: Re:Any1 with Mic download Skype
Post by: koko_99_2001 on July 15, 2004, 05:24:13 AM
I've only tried it with a cable connection.  Although, Graham has been asking me if anyone actually uses it!  So, does anyone use it??  Whenever I pull it up, no one is on...of course, it could just be my timing, since I seem to have the worst timing in the world!

I binge use it. Sometimes in small binges of half an hour or unhealthy large binges on 9 hours  :S eek.

Post by: koko_99_2001 on July 15, 2004, 06:11:18 AM
Of course, you binge use it when I'm not on!  I think you're beginning to avoid me, Alex! :P  j/k!  I'm sure you can blame me for the same thing, since we haven't gotten to talk in a few days! lol.  Hopefully I'll be on tonight...but definitely a little while tomorrow!!

I've heard from reliable sources  that to be able to really 'use' Skype you should have broadband. 8)
Title: Re:Any1 with Mic download Skype
Post by: Louisiana Night on July 16, 2004, 01:17:25 AM
I was just wondering if it sounded worse than a telephone conversation. I wasn't even hoping for decent audio.
Title: Re:Any1 with Mic download Skype
Post by: ShinyKnight on July 16, 2004, 03:34:42 AM
Well, my experience has been that they weren't kidding when they said it actually sounds better than using a good ol' fashioned telephone. Besides, the whole "doesn't cost you $5 a minute to call South America" doesn't hurt either. ;P

That same reliable source also told me that, with broadband, the sound quality when using Skype was better than when using a mobile/cellular phone.
And yes, ofcourse, the seriously reduced cost is not bad at all, especially nto with what we'd have to pay to our telephone company if we were to use our normal phone to phone abroad. Apparently, you can now also 'Skype' (as a verb) people who don't have Skype, but who have a normal phone. 8)

The quality surpasses even regular telephones CC, its really wierd talking on a phone now as I'm so used to hearing things much more clearly. I think the only problem with 56K is that there is a lag when talking, the quality remains around the same as far as I know.

But, you should use headphones or you'll hear awful feedback.  And, make sure you have a somewhat decent mic or you'll sound like a motorcycle... *coughSAYcough*  ;-D

You don't sound like a motorcycle, just the background noise does. XD  Actually, just before you're about to crash is when it's at its worst. :-\  It sounds like being in a multi-car accident on the freeway.  :o

The same thing happened to me too, yesterday. Just delete her from your contacts, and re-add her. I dunno why it did that, but it worked for me.
Title: Re:Any1 with Mic download Skype
Post by: Say on July 19, 2004, 04:01:39 AM
I added Jon and now it has a "?" besides his name, the problem is that the authorization never shows pending (if it still is)... well skype is a great program anyhow, it just happens to have a little things as everything, nothing so bad :)
