Dominator PMed be about having skype. i did have this back in 2003, then i stopped using it because my friends at school started using more AIM. but skype it a great way to talk to people and web cam basically.

i just re-downloaded skype today because of Dominator. so i was wondering if maybe having a UU skype were all the UU family can skype each other.

thought it would be a great way to really communicate with everyone other than the forums and AIM, MSN, or Yahoo.

my skype account is: fred.miu if you have it.

I was asked if I had Skype by someone who wants to do a quick interview for a podcast. I used to, but my account expired. However, I still had the spif usb headset I bought for it so I re-signed up.

My Skype name is howlinhobbit.

Give me a ring sometime if you see me online.

I read on Skype that Skypecasts don't exist anymore but there's something called public discussion. Could be interesting.

Ha! A good resurrection, indeed!

I'm happy to have found that the Linux version seems to work so well. Back when I first had Skype (on Windoze 98 no less) I actually spent $30 or so on a headset and it's been gathering dust for several years now.

hey.. i dont use skype much.. but a chatroom on this site would be nice! i see a lot of people are always signed on and looking.. at least 20-30 every time i look.. and if just 5 or 6 of those people were in a chat room it would be fun to share ideas live.. i bet if UU had a chatroom there would be a person in there 24/7

Maybe Skype is just effing up cuz it still has the "awaiting authorization" dealio next to your name.

They could have just deleted your account if it's been a long time. Patrick Moran brings up LOTS of results but nobody with zion in their screen name nor VA in their location.

I had to sign up again because my old account was long gone to the great bit bucket in the sky.

I think you can only do conference calls now, limited to 24 people. Which is actually quite a lot.
