Skype Rocks

I have taken refuge here in Mavor’s. It’s hot and muggy in the office: there’s plenty of AC here, free Wifi, and a tasty iced chai at my side. While I was sitting here, brother Stephen left me a message at the office; thanks to the magic of Asterisk, the message flew over to my email where I picked it up here.

Steve wanted a call back, so I fired up Skype and called him in Montreal using SkypeOut. The call wasn’t “CD quality,” but it worked. We chatted for a couple of minutes: total cost, €0.051, or about 8 cents.

SkypeOut is great, I used it to call my sister in Mexico when I was in a hotel in San Francisco, using the free wifi there. It was kind of awkward talking into a powerbook’s built in microphone, since the line in port is sadly missing from that stupid thing, but it sure beat the heck out of using the hotel phone.
