I just installed Skype. My laptop has a built in microphone but no camera, thankfully.

Anybody else use it? I need a test conversation!

Nope, sorry Danny.  I did install it once, ages ago, but either it didn't work properly on my computer or else it was most likely driver error (as my techie friend constantly tells me roll_eyesbig_laugh).

And why "no camera THANKFULLY"?  You don't want us to see you, or you don't want to see us??!?!! cryyellwhistlebig_laugh

I start my working day in my nightgear and sometimes I realise at 5 pm that I have not got dressed.

Some colleagues have cameras on their laptops. Not me. ever!

Aly called me!!

And she sounds positively normal. devil

No ducklings quacking in the background. i_am_hungry

But I think my connection is slow and the Skype conversation became rather garbled and lasted no more than five seconds. steam

We will try again. wink

My new laptop came with Skype installed but I have no idea what to do with it.  I have a camera just above the screen of the laptop but I would cover it up if I ever used Skype.  That would take a hundred years to work out!

I'll try that again!

You have to switch on the camera to use it with Skype TA, so you have no worries about having to cover it upcheers
