About me

Skype

They claim that Skype is free Internet telephony that just works. It is, and it does. I’ve just downloaded it to try calling phone lines, and the quality is just as it would be over a normal phone. And, even more surprisingly, it really does just work. No messing with sound settings, it just works.

The only problem with it at the moment is that it’s not widespread enough, so there’s no-one for me to call via internet telephony. But it could be very useful if people I knew did download it, as we’d be able to call each other for nothing. Extremely highly recommended.
