Default Anybody use SKYPE?

A new client I just signed recently turned me on to it. He travels out of the country a lot and it's a great way for us to discuss the upcoming project using the video conferencing feature. Also great for my son to chat with "Nana and Papa Joe". Oh, and it's FREE!

I use it all the time. I trade currencies and have a trading group from all over the country. We mainly use the chat function, but I use the video conferencing with family all the time. If you are just making phone calls on it can get pretty annoying as sometimes there is a bad delay that will drive you nuts.

Lots of people where "Brains" works used to use it. The company issued a memo for everyone to get SkyPE off the company computers. Don't know if it was a security concern or an issue with not having a SkyPE Enterprise license. The company's computers are very secure, SkyPE opens a port. So lots of employees put SkyPE on an external drive, plug that into their company computer, and talk away.

Constantly with family in Ireland and England. Probably 2-3video "calls" a day.

We even have 3 79-80 year old parents set up on it.
