Hi Kai:
I first thought I would like it but canceled it after a few weeks. Lousy voice quality, slow voice mail, limited commands and the already mentioned delay are just a few of my reasons. Also, I have only one friend out of the country and I am not sure why I would need it inside America as I have unlimited free long distance on my land line with none of the above problems. I also don't like dealing in foreign currency.

Greetings Dana.

Actually, assuming that everyone whose participating in the conference
is on a broadband connection, there really aren't any horrible delays.
There are occasional spurts of 5 to 10 second lag, but for the most part
it's usually 1 second, if any. It's a really amazing technology, and we
should use it to our advantage.

Hi Kai: Not a bad idea but if the usual delay accompanies the skype service it sure will be funny listening, lol! Dana

Greetings All.

I think it'd be really awesome for as many as the BCT listeners as
possible to learn how to use Skype, that way we could have Larry
a BCT episode, where a few of us listeners can join him. We've been
hearing from different listeners separately... But why not throw us
together and podcast the results?
