Anybody skype? I don’t, but I’m looking to.
I signed up for the Poisoned Pen Webcon. One day, all you can attend, no dress requirements. You can find a link to it on my Events page. From what I can gather, some events will be in the form of blog radio, some on videos, some through text messaging and some real time participation through Skype.
Okay, I know nothing about Skype, but I did go buy a teeny video camera with built in microphone which the saleskid said was all I needed - that and going online and downloading Skype.
The camera is still in the store bag in the hermetically sealed, impossible to open without a blow torch, packaging. And, no, I’ve not downloaded Skype. But I plan to. Then I figured I would ask my brilliant, always willing to help, visitors to this blog - do you Skype? Have any suggestions? Other than, turn the dang camera off when you don’t want people seeing you in your PJs. Which brings up another question, does having that teeny camera mounted on my laptop mean I’m always on-air???
If you have Skype, does it cost to make calls? I know no one who actually has Skype, so if you do, I may have to call you to see if mine works. Well, that certainly brought the background chatter to a halt. Okay, maybe there’s a test center I can call.
Anywho, I’m open for all advice on Skype. I haven’t actually opened the package, so I could still return it. Or I could try to hotwire my laptop and give you a call. How’s 3 a.m. this coming Sunday morning work for you? Be sure to keep your laptop by your bedside so you’ll hear my ring.
