I am just trying to resurrect the Skype contact scheme, and bring it to new members attention.
It really is a great way to get to know people, and also to solve a technical issue where you might be embarrassed to display it on the site, or can't describe it in text. One to one is usually a better way than trying to understand it in a posting.
It seems that after the initial flurry, it is dying a slow death, and people can't be bothered and very rarely have it switched on.
I have also noticed that a lot of people have their computers and Skype on permanently. There is a setting in Skype that detects if you are using your comp or not. Go to tools, then general settings, it would be a good idea if you could set that up so that after say non use for for 5 or 10 mins, it shows that you are away. When I am up and about late at night, and see that my Skype contacts are online, I don't know whether to call or not, as I might wake someone up from their beauty sleep.
I have a problem in the early hours, when I am up and about a lot, to stop my wife being disturbed by the ringtone, my computer speakers are turned off, and I can't hear the ringtone if I am in the other room. So if you want to call, just send a text, and if I am available I will usually call you straight back. It might show that I am away, but it is worth trying.
So lets get the people on here talking again, it costs you nothing other than a bit of cheap equipment (if you read this topic from the start, it descibes what is needed), and if you don't mind talking to an overweight lathe jockey, with no teeth, and a fag and coffee permanently on the go, get calling.
