Socoder -> Off Topic -> Skype?

I was just wondering if anyone here used Skype. I was thinking maybe a SoCoder 'voice' chat instead of text chat.


It could be interesting.

I use Skype occasionally. It's a fun change every once in a while.

I was thinking of getting a skype phone but forgot the idea.

Recently, I read that China has their version of a skype network, and so because of this I'm again thinking of getting a skype phone.

Blanko, is the skype service completely free now?

That reminds me, now that we are on the subject of Skype. Take a look at this...

Yeah.

I read about that and was wondering how far skype had grown since the last time looked at the phones.

the last time I checked the service had free internet phone communication but you had to pay for land line connections.

I was hoping the land line fees would be avoided.

now that I'm on the skype site, I see that there land line service fees are cheaper than my current phone fees.

I may have to switch.

Does anyone know if:

# Frequency 2.4-2.497Ghz
# Antenna - Omnidirectional, 2.4-2.49Ghz, 2.5dBi

these frequencies will be in conflict after February 2009 when the spectrum changes go into place?

I hope there's not any conflicts with the frequencies, some of us model enthusiasts have started using the 2.4 gig band.

Jay, You can plug some small headphones where microphone should go and speak through them.

I don't think my infrared headphones will do that

My old mike broke, and I've been meaning to buy a new one... Is it worth it to get a nice expensive one? I'm looking at a cheap £4.44 one on Amazon but I don't want to be drowned out by static.

Had a quicky skype with Blanko, using the only Microphone I could find..



unfortunately the DS's mic was picking up EVERYTHING!!!!
Clickity clickity click went the keyboard!!

ie..
This is me typing something in..
It's kind of annoyingly loud, and not much fun to put up with!!!

: Download

So, I'll continue to be skypeless until I get a half decent mic..
