Reach Me On Skype

I recently installed Skype which is really an amazing piece of software, in that it allows you to chat or actually talk with anyone on the internet for FREE. You can find it at http://www.skype.com/ and can get clients for Windows, Mac, and even Linux.

The software is really cool, as you can go into SkypeMe mode, which essentially lets people know you are willing to talk with new people. This is really cool, as you end up starting conversations with people from all over the world. Today I've talked with people in Brazil, Turkey, and Russia. It's really quite an interesting experience.

In addition, Skype lets you, for a fee, setup up voice mail, and even make phone calls to actual numbers around the world for a fixed rate that is much lower than long distance charges. Finally, as if it doesn't do enough, the quality of the conversations is actually much better / clearer than using a phone.

If you decide to start using Skype, give me a ring. My username is dnovosel.
