MessageHi Lynnette,
You are not alone!  This, I can say with utmost conviction, because my laptop 
doesn't like Skype much either.  I've wondered about the settings as well, and, 
once and for all, I'm going to figure out what is going on, by using my latent 
subconscious, my own guesswork, and, of course, the Hope way of learning 
things, by trial and error.  Oh wait, I suppose that qualifies as guess work, 
doesn't it?  <smile>

Hope who is on a mission!

  Yes, I'm re-thinking Skype.  I've had successes but quite a few failures.  
I'm wondering if there's some setting I can change on my laptop. The JAWS has 
died on my desktop, so even though I have Skype there, I'd be a bit lost--to 
say the very least.

    I feel that we need a chat room where we can go any time we want. We could 
set up a daily or weekly sched with each other and meet there but we need a 
room where we can go an talk all the time. There are people who work on a daily 
basis who can only talk with the group during the evening hours. Then there are 
those who may need this environment all the time to be able to talk with 
people. Dang I sure miss firetalk. I loved that service. I wonder if team talk 
or pal talk would work as well?

      I loved firetalk because you  could make private calls or get in to a 
conference. Maybe we need to create a chat site or buy one from the folks at 
audio tips. Either way I sure would like to talk with you all.----- Original

        I would be interested as well.  My Skype name is 

        It seems like we need:
        1.  A way to collect peoples Skype ids instead of a million emails.  
Can anyone whip up an html form to do this that would put the names in a list.  
I would do it, but I don't know CGI, etc.  I can ask one person that might know 
how to do it though; and2
        .  Pick a date and time which it seems like we are working on.

        Sorry if this has already been done I am reading these messages in 
reverse chronological order and who knows I might get to an original message 
where this is all set up :).

        Hi guys.

        I have been collaborating with a few other people on skype from this 
list and we thought it would be kinda cool to do a BCT skype conference call. I 
think we can have up to 9 people is that right?

        This would be very cool and fun. What do you all think?
