Skype is sorta like messanger, but instead of typing you instead talk to people. I have, well had it on my main CPU before it took a trip to hell and never came back. It be easily to teach you if I had it, but let's see if I can explain it best I can in my words.

It pretty much works as a messanger, in that when you've logged in, there should be the 'add contact' or something similar to that button at the top, and then below should be your contact list and you should already start out with one person (that being the Skype help thing-a-gig that you call and see if your mic is working) but yeah, pretty much when you get someone to add, just add them, click there name, and hit the green button at the bottom... and that's pretty much it. :huh: It's rather fun, probably more if you had more people to talk to... I only had Dodd, and Kuze and I never really got the chance to talk to Adam seeing as my mic started being evil.

That's what I get for using a mic that's supposed to be used for a game on the PS2 I suppose.

I hope I explained it decent enough... that's pretty much all there is to know, I think -- all I know about it really.

basically Skype is like Vonage (if your in the states you've probibally seen the adverts) but instad of using a normal phone, you use a microphone, and your computer.

Skype has the ability to call any regular telephone in the world...for a fee. But calling other Skype users free as air.

also its halfway banned in communist China, whitch is odd considering I have someone from communist China on my Skype buddy list.

I have basically Introduced it to several people on the fourm, Namely Kaishi, Riser, ADN Kuro.

I have on ym buddy list. Adam, Riser, Kashi, Theseus, 3 podcasters, some guy from communist China, one of theseus's freinds and that Skype test recording.

anyones wondering my Skype username is as expected kuze77

Oh and quick hint, NEVER LEAVE YOUR STATUS AS SKYPE ME I got Lituanians, Germans,and the Chinese calling me.

What isn't banned in Communist China? I'm not kidding, it seems they ban something else every day.
