I'm bad with phones, partly cuz I'm very hearing impaired. ;P
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.

Sung to the tune of "Rape Me" by Nirvana.

Skype me
Skype me my friend
Skype me
Skype me again

I'm not the only one (x4)

Skype me
Do it and do it again
Waste me
Skype me my friend

I'm not the only one (x4)

My favorite inside source
I'll kiss your open sores
Appreciate your concern
You're gonna stink and burn

Skype me
Skype me my friend
Skype me
Skype me again

I'm not the only one (x4)

Skype me! (x9)

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?

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!

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)

I was just wondering if it sounded worse than a telephone conversation. I wasn't even hoping for decent audio.

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
