|Skype - Anyone Interested in Skypeing?|
Well, perhaps you should be. It's a free (more about that later) way of making voice contact over the internet, PC to PC.
Interested? As I said before, using Internet Telephony allows you to talk to a contact, PC to PC. All you need is a microphone and your PC's speakers - or headphones. The software is available from Skype, and downloads are free. And if you talk PC to PC, calls are free. You can even arrange Conference Calls if you like, just gather the group around the PC, make the call, and start.
Want some other advantages? You can chat to your Rotarian friends over the PC while your "significant other" can use the phone. Ever tried to get on the phone when your teenage son or daughter has claimed it? Forget it, it's next to impossible. But not to worry, just use Skype.
If you like, you can even talk PC to land-line (copper wire) phones, and these calls cost a little more than 1c per minute.
To find out more about this fantastic service, log in to Skype's Website on: http://www.skype.com/
I strongly recommend you follow through and have a look at this service. Reception is excellent, and the service is international. So, if you have a friend in the UK, USA for example, you can chat to them for as long as you like without cost.

To join Skype, follow these steps:
1. Download Skype voice and instant messaging program by following the navigation from the link above or from:
Right click on the download link and save SkypeSetup.exe on your disk. You can virus check it before executing it that way if you like.
2. Install the program by executing SkypeSetup.exe
3. Select unique id for use with Skype. Most of the more popular IDs are already booked. Try to find a meaningful alternative rather than take their alternatives which involve your choice followed by numerals.
4. Update picture (jpg or gif) if you like as part of profile so it pops up when you call someone so they can recognize you. (In my case best avoided) .
5. When you are ready use "Tools" / " Search for a contact". Voice chats really open up new opportunities for fellowship and service.
6. Ensure that speakers are working and plug in the microphone to your sound card.
Standby for a new experience.
