Skype

Ok, I finally made the plunge. I installed Skype, ordered a webcam, and tested it out with my Rosetta Stone headphones (it worked perfectly) and have attempted to make contact with a few folks I know have Skype. Including my Mom, my brother, and Eric's Granny who we saw this last week.

I'll admit, my test call from my ex-boss put chills up my spine in the sense that it was my first videophone call. When I actually get video on my side I suspect it'll be even stranger.

Welcome to the future...

Glad to hear you’ve taken the plunge – and please give me a shout if you have any questions about Skype :)

I use Skype in my podcasts. (As opposed to the disgusting practice some have of recording from a speakerphone.) It provides better audio quality if you can record straight from the source.

Actually, I'd like to have you and Eric on the podcast sometime, though this wouldn't be the place to arrange that...

Maybe once Eric gets a microphone. He's installing Skype now.

You can get Skype headsets on eBay pretty cheap...

I've been focused on getting a cam for Skype. But Eric got Skype working, and my headphones work with his computer.
