Lo.

I have just spent the last hour on Skype with flightfreak and deviljet88, and I must say that quite apart from the amusement value of hearing foreign accents, the program is brilliant.

Just wondering how many people would be interested in using it to chat in real time to fellow KKW members. And laugh at accents. Four people can chat at once, or you can use it as a private 'phone' service.

The software is totally free, but if you want to pay for 'credit', you can use it to call foreign landline and mobile phones at a fraction of the cost of regular phones. All you need is a microphone and a decent sort of internet connection. I havent tried it on 56k, and I don't want to, but someone else is welcome to try and report the results.

If anyone is interested, either PM myself or leave your Skype contact details in this thread.

Liam,
Wavefront Administrator

The program is great, and the costs to phone to mobiles or normal phones are indeed a fraction of the costs of a regular phone call.
skype rules!!!
I already phoned with meggiehoops (New York) and Liam and jet (Australia)
and the sound quality is really good even with a cheap crap microphone.
skype is from the same developers as kazaa, but it's legal :p

I've used skype allready months ago, when it was a beta version. The program was great then, and now it will be even better. But I don't think a lot of people will understand what i'm saying, or worse I don't know what to say...

skype name: tostitortellini85
btw.
mozilla thunderbird is also a great program from the same people as firefox(thunderbird is e-mail...something like outlook express)

teamspeak has no permanent connection, so the beginning of u'r phrase might not be transmitted....

My presence shall grace skype soon.
Hopefully by tomorrow my ability to speak will have returned, and you can all be hear me speaking as if I've had a tracheostomy. I hope you're all excited at the prospect.

I honestly do sound like I am speaking through a biro in my throat. While smoking a cigar. But we shall see. You shall also see (or hear) how terrible my personality truly is.

I'll be on next week, as I will be back at my apartment. Which by the way is FREEZING!!!!

Donut
22-12-2004, 05:20 PM
cold out there? :icon_bigg

Mandy
22-12-2004, 05:27 PM
Yes. It's extremely cold in Kansas. I had actually cracked open my window last night as it was pretty warm in my apartment, but I made the mistake of leaving it open and woke up with the sniffles. :(

Donut
22-12-2004, 05:48 PM
uh yes i hate that, too!
U lay there in the warm, cosy bed and then the alarmclock rings und when the air touches ur feet, u only thinks: 'aou god! y i have to stand up??'

Ashley
26-12-2004, 09:41 PM
Oh woot, I'm back. My name on the thingie is a_shley


I'm having Skype issues. I'm too stupid to figure out how to talk on it.

My issues have been resolved.

Any more of you insufferable cretins download it yet?

Mandy
17-01-2005, 07:21 AM
I got it a long time ago, and seem to get nothing but a bunch of calls from odd foreign people. Whose names I can't pronounce....

Foeni
17-01-2005, 08:02 AM
Yeah, I've downloadet it. And added your name Liam, if you haven't noticed... ;)

Liam

I'm working on it mate. My computer went totally balls up on me this afternoon, so its reformatting now. I'm only praying the 'tweaks' I made were only written into the windows registry and not the hardware BIOS.

Time will tell.

Foeni
17-01-2005, 08:07 AM
Well, good luck.... I think I'll call you as soon as I see you online.. Australian accent is funny :)

acliff

I would go on skype, but due to the fact that I'd get addicted, and I have more important things to do than talk to you cretins, I will leave it for now.

Don't all shout your cries of disappointment at once.

After that letdown i think the only viable option left for me would be suicide. Goodbye cruel world.

Right, my computer is now working again. Took re-fdisking and starting fresh to fix it, but its running.

Just want to ask anyone who has already added me to send me a quick PM or email or IM message or whatever and let me know what your screen name for Skype is. Some of you havent posted in this thread, thats all.

If you arent on my list yet, I'll get to you soon.

wankers wouldn't let me get away with a 4-letter name.


*edit*

Remembered someone who habitually stalks these forums that I don't in any way, shape, or form want to speak to. PM me for the SN.

What's the point, no one wants to talk with the me anywhere, anyway.

Right, after our kinda failed skypecast the other night, I decided to bump this tread. We should try having a skypecast just for KKW (is a password possible?) or a phonemeeting or whatever. So if you don't have skype, download it and post your name here :)

Cheers.

Oh bollocks, does that mean I have to get a new mic? But I don't wanna!

Ranman

great now i'm gonna get people bothering me on this, msn is enough

Mandy
08-06-2007, 10:25 PM
Yeah, you can have a private one so people can't join it. You can create a skype cast and get the link, and other people won't know it's there. This would be fun! And Fo, you barely said a word :p

I needed an aspirin after the other night....brit accents are so hot, but impossible to tell apart. I kept confusing Ice with two other brits that were there...and I think one of them was irish. I'm so lame. :D

anyways, I don't think I'll post my skype name here...if anyone gives a shit, PM me.

cheers

Mandy
08-06-2007, 10:46 PM
Can I tell them what it is?


Mine is "alynndan." Original? Nah.

Ranman

I talked to fo yesterday, he was very talkative
and he had a pleasant voice i might add

Urbanebula
09-06-2007, 09:20 AM
Fo and I ended up chatting on a text channel thingy after Ice left cos we didn't know anyone.

Ranman
09-06-2007, 09:29 AM
was that you I was listening to?

Urbanebula
09-06-2007, 09:32 AM
I wasn't really saying anything after Ice left. If I'm correct, after Mandy crashed out it was an Australian guy who set up another.

Foeni
09-06-2007, 04:25 PM
Oh bollocks, does that mean I have to get a new mic? But I don't wanna!
No, don't. If you get to a mic, the rest of us will have to interrupt you all the time :)

Ran, if you think I'm talkative, it's obvious you've never talked to haz..
And Fo, you barely said a word
I didn't know all these boring people.. You, urb, ran and ice is who I knew..
I'll talk if we get a KKW skypecast convo at some point, though.
