I used to be on this, years ago. A mate asked if I was still on - anybody else on Skype here?

If destiny's kind, I've got the rest of my mind.

Last time I bought a cheap microphone - will try to do better this time - any tips as to what kind to get? I suppose I'll have to get another of those little camera thingies - think I chucked the other one out.

Laptop has a camera, but I got a cheap microphone which seems to work fine, I think you can just plug a webcam in and it should work if you are set up to Skype, but maybe one of the boys can help.

Is that one of those old fashioned devices where people actually talk to each other as opposed to wearing out two fingers like what we do like.
I like you. You remind me of myself when I was young and stupid.

I used to have a small phone (similar in size to a mobile) which plugged into the usb drive.

Found that better than using a microphone.

You can Skype me anytime Eileen

It was invaluable whilst I was working in Stinkypoo.

There are only 96 true 'victims'.

 

I only become a victim when you call me one....................... so don't bother.

Don't believe the Skype!!!

No amount of cajolery, and no attempts at ethical

or social seduction, can eradicate from my heart a deep burning hatred for the

Tory Party. So far as I am concerned they are lower than vermin.

It's SHITE being Scottish! We're the lowest of the low. The scum of the fucking Earth! The most wretched, miserable, servile, pathetic trash that was ever shat into civilization. Some hate the English. I don't. They're just wankers. We, on the other hand, are colonized by wankers. Can't even find a decent culture to be colonized by. We're ruled by effete assholes. It's a SHITE state of affairs to be in, Tommy, and all the fresh air in the world won't make any fucking difference!

I was asking Kate what happened to the webcam I used to have - apparently she took it to her mate's house and they've used it to keep in touch with other pals. I should have it back later - and it has an inbuilt mic - so I should be all set up tonight.

Wehey!!!! It'll be a laugh. :D I'll also be able to see Rafe and not miss too much.

It's what I'm hooking up to ... when Kate finally gets home with the bloomin' webcam. Grrrrrr!

You download Skype and make phone calls - free to other users - and see folk on camera. Scary, eh? :)

You dont need a camera, there is a 'just chat' option on Skype, effectively making it a free mobile phone service.

As somebody more-or-less said earlier.

There are only 96 true 'victims'.
