Skype – Finally!

:: I have been waiting for almost two years for someone, anyone out there, to try the Skype program with me. This afternoon, my dear father downloaded and installed the program on his machine in Winnipeg, and we spoke to each other through the VoIP program, using headsets. VoIP=Voice Over Internet Protocol, used in IP Telephony. I was amazed at how clear the sound was, much better than my telephone. What are the rest of you waiting for?? All computer-to-computer calls are free to anywhere in the world! Put your headset on, start a call, and the damn thing even rings like a telephone!

I purchased 10.00 worth of time to use SkypeOut, which lets you call landlines or cell phones. Using Skype, I can call a landline or cell phone in the States for $0.032 per minute.

Thanks, Dad. Anyone else care to try?

    I downloaded the software…and then discovered my headset doesn’t work. When l replace it, I’ll try again.

    You have to use the software on BOTH ends? I remember calling you with VOIP software some years ago and only I needed to have the software. But it wasn’t that clear, either.

    dad earlier this week via Skype, it was like he was sitting next to me in
    the same room, it was that clear – R
