Talk With Other Members
Well Bernie found this cool "thing" called SKYPE and we have some ideas as to how we can use this in the forum. The system, which is completely free, allows us to talk around the world with anybody that has a computer and a headset. We can also conference up to 5 at a time, so when somebody is looking for opinions or a small group just wants to BS about a certain topic, here's the answer.
Run down, get a headset, sign up for SKYPE (also free) and let's see if we can take this forum help to another level.

Sign up bitches!!!
Did you see the word FREE,
FREE, FREE, FREE, FREE, FREE, FREE
Did you see that?
Here's the scoop. Let's say you are sitting at your computer talking on the phone to somebody "blah, blah, blah" and you are racking up phone minutes....
Wouldn't you like to have a way to do that for free?
You will need a computer friendly headset.
Incredibly, the sound quality is FREAKING PHENOMINAL! No itchy-scratchy cell phone.
The only drawback is that if you want to call regular numbers, it cost money. BUT that doesn't matter if you get your friends to all sign up... PLUS it has a 5 way conference call.

It was cool, just talked with Mark and Bernie. So let's see Arizona, California and Australia at no cost and clear as a bell. Nice plastic hat story Bernie.

OK, I'm in, minus the headset, which I will pick up today. I think that I'm "CrazyMatrixMan". I'll get the headset and try it out later on. Anything I need to know that will make it easier to get started without reading the entire "how to"?

I'm using my "SoCom" headset (Logitech) from the playstation 2. Works like a charm.
Hey Al... I was on the line for almost an hour today with Australia... we didn't drop once, and I was all over the net. Check your connection.

We just found a "chink" in the armor....
Art tried it with his dial up... We sounded like "Mr Roboto" to each other. He called my cell, and it was pretty funny.
