Skype: testers wanted!

Category: The Web | 8 Comments | Posted 18:05

OK so Skype apparently is the next big thing in Internet telephony. It is based on the P2P system, it was invented by the same people who started Kazaa, and it's supposed to be good quality and all that. It looks like a little messenger and is very simple to use.

So I've just downloaded & installed it and I want people to call me so we can try it out! You can download it here (it says you need XP or Win 2000, but apparently it works on Win98 too. You need a microphone obviously). My username is clarissawam, so add me and ring me! :P Come on, you know you want to! :D


hehe, i'd read about that already a while ago, but not very ambitious to check it out, because i hate kazaa anyway.

You should really throw kazaa for good and use DC++. Its a little more complicated, but MUCH better.

I downloaded that Skype thing and tried it with Paul, but the sound would break now and then, so I uninstalled it and I'll continue using MSN, cause that works better, and has got a video image too. Clarissa, do you ever use MSN for sound and video when you talk with friends?

I don't get DC++ Maybe I'm too thick. Get a 403 forbidden when trying to access the hublist and that's it. *ahem*

And no I've never really used MSN for audio, only Yahoo. Seb also told me that it was better quality. Will try it soon.

Hehe @ Mir
