I crashed the Webcast Academy's meeting and Jeff most graciously hosted the call and the stream. We talk about Skype, mobile phones, and roadkill. The virtual staff lounge lived-up to its name again this week.... Special thanks to those who waited around for the host to get there!

21:38:22 JL : Makes starting a group chat with those in a call much easier - no clicks required
21:39:06 PeggyG : no skype 4 for Macs
21:40:26 PeggyG : I have a leather case on mine--love it!
21:40:58 PeggyG : I discovered though that when I have the case on I can't plug in the backup charger pack.

21:41:23 PeggyG : I watched a couple of the TED videos when you were MIA :-)

21:42:12 PeggyG : which version is that Matt?
21:42:18 kcaise : doug, didn't you have problems with the beta skype version?
21:42:39 PeggyG : I'm using 22.214.171.1240 on my Mac.
