I was just wondering if anyone here uses Skype for making calls via the internet. I've been watching the development of this, and it's really going to revolutionize how we use (or don't use) the telephone.

i use Skype pretty frequently, I've got about 7 people on my list.  I imagine it's becoming more and more popular.

You can't be a real country unless you have a beer and an airline. It helps if you have some kind of a football team, or some nuclear weapons, but at the very least you need a beer.

Yep, I use it all the time and it rocks.  The sound quality is amazing and it's totally free software for PC to PC calls.

I use skype and it's great. Unfortunately, every time I use it, it screws up my audio settings, so I have to sometimes reboot. The other night I went on the air and my mic wouldn't work no matter what I did. I rebooted and it was fine. My audience didn't seem to mind.  ;D
