Skype?

Anyone use Skype? In what ways do you like/dislike it?

There is a thread about this few weeks ago. Works great for cheap phone calls when you are overseas.

Found the other thread. This works great - especially the closer the caller is to you. I tried one to London and it was a tiny bit pixal, but usable. Very nice.

I use it for webcamming with the gf. It works pretty well, the catch is that both parties need to be using a webcam "designed for use with Skype" for the quality of the video to not be pixellated.

Only gripe is sometimes I get calls dropped randomly, but I blame it on crappy interwebs speed

Skype voice quality sucks. Use a xlite with a real voip provider.

skype has a beta new business service coming out soon that is SIP enabled so possibly able to tie into a companies phone switchboard. This could enable internal dialing to skype users and also redirected calls to skype.

Haha. That is straight nerd. I'm a huge fan of video games myself. Just found this particularly funny.
