It was an honor to talk to you all.. I was able to hear Dusty running to the other room, your iSight mic was really good .<br><br>It would also be nice if I can use Skype to dial toll-free numbers, but I think it requires a deposit into my SkypeOut account and will pay for toll-free calls as if they were local US calls.. Still good to have the access.<br><br>[color:blue].........................................<br>Loading, please wait...</font color=blue>

I had an audio iChat with Ivan (Iraszl) the other day, and except for a bit of a delay, the quality was good. I have a 3 Mbps cable connection and he has a 256Kbps DSL connection. We had a couple of slight drop-outs over the course of 45 minutes or so, but over all, it worked well. It was the first time I've done an audio chat with anyone outside of the US.<br><br>I'm wondering if Skype has higher quality or less latency?<br><br>The only chink with Skype is that in order to use it, both parties have to D/L install and register it, while almost everybody already has either AIM or iChat.<br><br>

The added value points (I perceive) of Skype over AIM/iChat are:<br>1. The computer to telephone feature..<br>2. With monitored internet services like ours here, we go over proxies, and iChat voice does not work very well with that. However, Skype worked fine..<br><br>[color:blue].........................................<br>Loading, please wait...</font color=blue>
