sam.dobbins is my skype
I have an unlimited phone call/date thru AT&T as the wife retired from them a few years back...I get all of these free benefits and don't even use em...free minutes, home,long distance,data, free phone...I can get the new IPHONE but I don't want to go back to college to take a course on how to use it.
My phone sits on my chest of drawers and I only use it when I am on trips or when I set up consulting appointments and then it goes back on the chest. Too many years of business and being tied to phones and pagers ( yes, pagers as that dates me ) and hating both of them. Being retired makes me think like a cave man...roll the rock open,,take a cigar break go back inside and roll the rock closed. :lever:
This weekend is a holiday but we could start after the Holidays and just make Friday or Sat. Virtual Herf Days.
Dave....just go to Skype and download their program...it's very easy and Tokbox is just as easy. Either program works well.
Here are some things to know:
Use a microphone and not the one some computers have that are already installed...it results in too much feedback and causes unneeded buffering or lagging. WallyMart has the combo mic and camera which work great.
If you don't have a camera you can still use the mic and be a part of the virtual herf as well..we just can't see that pretty face of yours or what you might be doing sitting there in your pretty pink jammies with the feet slippers....or sitting there in your striped bermuda shorts and flippy floppies drinking a fruity beverage.
My Skype name is Cigary43
Only one person with Sam.Dobbins came up and he's from another country unless that is you.
We need to make a list of brothers who want to link up on Skype and use their ID:
Mine is Cigary43
Add yours under mine.
Got you in my contacts now Dave. Skype is good with calling landlines or just using it to talk iin real time...so we dont have to go thru AOL in order to use Skype.
Ah shit, now I gotta get Skype?
Anyone about to light up? I was going to take the laptop out back and have a cigar but it's 11:15 here and I think it would be more enticing if I had some folks to BS with. Who's getting ready for a cigar?
Well this went over like a fart in church.
Thought you might want to check out this thread if you haven't seen it
Too advanced for me.
We should put out one of those "alerts" a few days before when we're available to herf and smoke. Scott...you're more sophisticated than I am as far as getting set up to E herf. If this old bastid can do it you whippersnappers can.
