Hay guys,

For your information -- even if you have Skype running, which is always your 
choice, you can go to the file menu and change your status so that you are not 
available thru there you can become not visable, or status as "do not disterb". 
 On the other hand, if you want to be visable you can be, and if you want you 
can turn on auto answer so when someone calls you and you want less hastle  for 
answering the computer will answer any in-coming Skype call.  With that choice 
when the call comes they just start talking to you and you don't have to hit a 
key to accept the call or anything.

: The thing about Skype alerts, is that they don't steal focus, they
: just popup in the bottom of the taskbar.
: That's good, because you can look at them when you want to, now msn
: messenger alerts, now that's annoying.

from what I'm doing, and I'm not too happy about even getting email 
notification sounds, but at least those don't interrupt you!

:  Hi list,
:  I've really enjoyed the podcasts this week; two of Larry and Jake walking in 
just a couple days is a very special treat! I sit in my favorite rocking chair, 
large mug of hot chocolate in hand, book port or Olympus WS320 on my lap, 
headphones on, just taking it all in and glad to hear it all. We have such cold 
rainy weather this week and with all the other adverse weather conditions 
throughout the country, it's nice to know at least a few places have more 
pleasant surroundings than snow or rain.
:  I love the podcast Hope and Megan did. You guys sounded like you were having 
a real good time with it! I kept hearing doors opening and closing, and thought 
for a while that you must have a huge amount of people coming into your room 
and leaving; and then I figured out it must be the computer doing those sounds 
with instant messenger and people leaving and coming online. So, my mistake, 
but it was fun imagining you carrying on a conversation and hearing doors open 
and close all the time. I thought, "Who is spying on you guys anyway?" You 
really must do a podcast on Skype. I got a version from http://www.jfwlite.com 
and there were scripts there also, but I bet it was an earlier version; I set 
up an account last year and have never used it, and I don't even have Skype on 
my PC now. It just seems too disruptive. But that's just me, not used to being
