Skype: My New Friend

I've used skype in the past, but only a couple of times. My son and daughter are both going to call us using Skype on Christmas day. Now I'm wondering why I haven't been using Skype more all these years! I have to admit that it is probably more time consuming than a regular phone call, but it is more fun! The nice part is that you can show each other things, or make faces or something. And the best part is that it's free! Why haven't I done this more often? Maybe when my kids get home I will use skype more to communicate with them when they are away from home. As missionaries they have rules about when they can call home, and Christmas is one of those times. I really hope we can do a video chat with them! Tonight I tested it out with my brother "Twist". It was fun to see him and his wife. Ah, the joys of modern technology.

Once I was lost, but now I found Skype too! We have been Skype across the pacific for a few years now. It is great to be able to talk forever without holding a watch and computing the money drain like we did in the old days with an international call.

I love Skype. I use it to catch up with family and friends across the world. The only problem with Christmas day is that because of heavy use the reception is sometimes below par.

maybe One day we will catch up in this way and you can join me at my fireside!

Hi D,

Oh yes, Skype is a great way of talking without worrying about the cost of it.

I discovered Skype a few years ago, and I use it every now and then. But one of my resolutions for the new Year is to use it more (I'm sick of spending money on communications lol).

With the new Android phones, Skype works marvellously and you can talk while on the go...

Merry Christmas to you, my friend!

I found Skype about three year's ago. It was something as quick e-mail for me :)) - I have not webcam, I havn't microphone.
Today I still havn't webcam (I have but it's broken), but sometimes I'm going online and I can hear my friends. Yes, absolutely free. And it's great! :)
