It still seems to good to be true but it works and works well!

Alan, pleased to have been of service
the beauty of this syetm is also the fact that you can have a 3-4 way conversation which you can't have on a normal line AND IT IS FREE if computer to computer

I think I have said this before but no harm in repeating

"mine's a Guinness"

Brian , as for any spam well I have been using Skype since October 04 and have not had this problem. Perhaps on a few occasions somebody called but as I did not recognize the username I did not authorise the call and was not bothered again
One of our girls in the Polish office made a mistake in posting her photo and this resulted in lots of calls from her so called "Skype fan club" so she promptly removed the photo.
Best not to put any telephone numbers or addresses or photos in the profile.

Todate I have saved a bomb on overseas and national calls

Hi Andre

I'm at work right now, so I'm sorry that I don't have a picture, But it's the same boat I had when we where at Ribes last year, and it's the same boat we had, when we had our little meeting in Denmark.
The only difference is a new engine, the Yahama Vmax gave up on me (I bought to cheap 2 stroke oil). So changed it for a suzuki 250 (great engine).

I will try to find a picture of the boat with the new engine

Looking forward to seeing you again some time
Rene

Although I've had it on my PC for 8 months, installed it out of interest, never know anyone who had it.

Just had a conversation with Brian and the sound quality is better than a phone line.

Fantastic

Don't forget it is free when computer to computer. Why not buy the SKYPEOUT and call a normal landline it will still be much cheaper
I will call you so perhaps one day with Brian we can hold a 3 way conversation
