Any interest in an aidsmeds Skype/IM Club thingie
« on: June 14, 2006, 07:45:49 PM »
I signed up for Skype and spoke with Lisa the day before yesterday!!!  The call worked perfectly!  Anyone interested in having a Skype/(insert whatever voice-over-internet service you use) club?  On Skype you can have conference calls!!!!  The voice quality was great and you can even do video calls too.

www.skype.com

And for you cavemen and women still using dial-up, apparently Skype also works on that too, (though I'd be willing to bet the quality probably is not as good as if you were on broadband, especially if you are doing other stuff like searching for internet porn, while also making a call).  To test that theory, I will ask Rocky, a most respected Aidsmeds caveman still using dial-up, to make a call on Skype, while also doing his usual internet porn searches.  We'll report back once the call has been completed and his keyboard is in its usual sticky state.

Cliff... I guess that makes me a caveman too...being on dial up like I am.  But Yes..
I'm more than interested.  Incidentally, have you had any problems with spyware
since downloading Skype?  Any computer problems?

Hey David,

I can't say that I've noticed any spyware with Skype.  But I to be honest, I haven't used it long enough yet.  I've only used the program for the first time, when I spoke with Lisa earlier this week.  I'll let you know if something comes up though.

Cool!!!! okay, I'm gonna set you up as my contact....texden is mine.

Oh....I just tried to add you and it couldn't find you.  It pulled up a bunch of stephen Atkins, but none in Australia.   ???

See if you can add me and send me a note....(it's probably me, cause I couldn't add Lisa either, she had to send me a text first).

Hello,

 I would most likely consider Skype( which I have heard is good) or some other voice over internet.

But, at the present, I am not going to add anything to this antique computer. Everything is much too unstable right now, due to the hard drive going.

Still computer shopping. I am not an impulse shopper, so, I am taking my time and checking things out.

NOW WAIT ONE DAMN MINUTE HERE!

STOP!

IF ANYONE'S GOING TO HAVE PHONE (o.k. computer) SEX WITH LITTLE STEVE, I'M FIRST IN LINE DAMN IT!

First, if any of you sorry ass fools (not to be confused with "damn fool" though I suspect you are all from the same gene pool  :o ) paid one lick of attention to my words of wisdom, you'd remember I announced way back last November I now have DSL.   >:(

Like JRE, however, the computer I am currently using is struggling on life support and I need to get a different one before I start burdening it with some new fancy schmancy thingy ma jiggy.

Yeah Stevie....I got a whole bunch of stephen.atkins....but all I could find were the same thing Cliffy talked about. We need an e-mail addy for further clarification. My e-mail is advertised in my posting box. I would love to talk to you too!! :)
Cliff was using his laptop, but the clarity was so good, I could have sworn he was in the next room(and he is in France somewhere for gosh sakes).
I wanna ask a whole bunch of people here to download it. It is very friendly, easy to use, easy to download(4minutes with my DSL Llite), and fabulously rewarding.
If we can get a bunch of people to download it we could have the Mother of All Conference Calls!!!!!
I'm just itching to get the chance to hear the voices of so many people.
Here's the thing......    even with dial-up.....after your connectionis made, everything is smoothe sailing after that. Back in '99' I only had NetZero, and a 386 IBM with a decrepid win95, and still managed to have lengthy conversations with a man in Sydney, Australia.
The moral of this story boys and girls is that "I have dial-up" isn't going to cut it! :D

/edit/ P.S.
Whoopsie...Davey there were no problems with spyware or any form of pop-up.

I've spent the better part of 3 hours trying this and it isn't working.

My computer keeps locking up.

I think the problem is I'm running Windows ME, and I think it has to be either Windows XP or 2000.

1.  Ray and Rocky, just buy a damn computer for the love of God.  Yall acting like you're purchasing a wife from Russia.  To make things easier for you.  I have decided that you both should get a Dell (Dingo got one recently).  I've included a link to Dell below.  You get a computer for as cheap as $299 (monitor excluded).

http://www.dell.com/content/products/category.aspx/desktops?c=us&cs=19&l=en&s=dhs



2.  Who in the hell told Jonathan, Lisa and Jan that they could already jump the gun and have a call without me!  How in the world does the person who started the thread, get left out.  That's wrong.  It's because I'm from Texas, isn't it?

3.  Robert, we are going to get you on....somehow, someway.  I think you have to have a connection of at least 33kps or 52kps...if you can't get your dial up to get to that connection speed, I wonder if it won't work.  I'll do some searches to see what I can find out.

4.  Would everyone who is still on dial-up look into getting broadband please.  My own 80 year-old grandmother out in rural Texas, has broadband for heaven sake people!!!!  

5.  Lil Steve, don't you start with me....it took you over 2 weeks to figure out how to post a picture for heaven sake!  It only took me a few days to figure that one out.

6.  Rocky, have you completed your internet porn/Skpe conference call test yet?  We're waiting.....

hey Rocky,

you may be right indeed. i use an older version of Skype which runs with Windows ME, but when I just logged on I got referred to the 'new and improved' version which seems to require later versions of Windows.

Lisa is right too. If you search for stephen.atkins in Australia I am the first on the list.

Waiting for your calls now  ;D
Jonathon, Rocky, Jan any other takers?

Okay.  I just got knocked off of Skype.  But before I did, I managed to speak to Jan, Alberto (Markmt), lil Steve (sort of) and Lisa (again)!!!!  It was great.  The connections were a bit funny.  I could hear Jan and Alberto perfectly, (especially Jan).  Lisa's connection was also great.  Unfortunately, I can't say the same for Lil Steve.  His porn downloads were slowing down the connection.  ;D

Note to Rocky, no need to try out the porn/skype combination.  We've already determined that Skype doesn't go well with porn.  So note to all the guys....make sure you turn off all the porn before you join a conference call.  mmmmkay.

It's all my fault. I just talked to Matt, thinking he was a virgin at the time and not realising that Jan had snuck in behind my back and gotten to him first. Damn you Jan, you get all the good men.

This time, I had closed all my porn down Cliff, but I still had the same problems with delays - i could have walked over to Matt's and delivered the message by the time my Skype call made it.

Looks like I'm gonna have to update this dinosaur dell with it's pentium II processor and update from Windows ME and download the latest version of Skype. So much to do.

Rocky,
The latest version of Skype says you need Windows 2000 or better so you may be out of luck with Windows ME.

And the conversation, much like orgy sex, was a bit confusing.  Folks kept getting dropped off, Lil Steve was like 3 minutes behind the conversation...side calls were going on.  It was mess I tell ya.  BUT IT WAS GREAT....I CAN'T WAIT FOR ROUND TWO, (which oddly enough, is also the same reaction I usually have after orgies.....well if I did that sorta thing, which I don't....that often...hardly ever...okay every now and then....maybe once in a blue moon.)!!!

BTW Rocky- Did I ever tell you how much I hate your new avatar?  All that kicking is getting on my nerves.  I think I'm gonna put you on ignore for a day or two!   ;D  :-*   :P  Or maybe I'll just find me an annoying avatar to match.

i reloaded the new version of skype,and i've made one test call so far.  still not brilliant, but i think that probably has more to do with my mic than the actual software  :-\

i also hang out on msn...should anyone want either address, drop me a pm...call me crazy, but am not quite feeling ready to post personal contact details for the whole world to see...!

Well it looks like it's all coming together..I had a great time TRYING to talk to Cliff, Markmt, and Steve last night..there was a bit of confusion but lots of laughs on the line... :D
You guys have to get this hooked up everyone sounds so wonderful..we don't have to settle for just photos now we can actually put a voice to those we love.
Markmt has the most beautiful (and dare I say it) sexy voice and so does Cliff, and you will love Matt and Steve's great Aussie accent, two wonderful young men..so get hooked up and don't miss out.

I had a great conversation with Matt last night...and Rocky , bless his little heart called me this morning, about half and hour ago (I was just out of bed)..I think he is panicking a bit...poor wee man it's all so new to him.. :D

So far I have talked to Lisa and Jonathon (I know all about Ferrits now  ;)), Cliff, Markmt (but we have talked often) Steve, Matt and Rocky..and it's is wonderful to hear them all.
I have spoken to our little Mouse and believe me he is not boring..he is the sweetest young man to talk too..so call him.

Hugs
Jan :-*

It sounds like I'll have to install this friggin' thing. First I must find where I put the damn microphone ( never used it )..and if I can't locate it then will have to buy one.  :o

How come Rocky calls me and when I answer, he's all surprised cause he's on his land line and "this thing" has apparently called me all on its own.   ::)  LOL. 

I just saw the note that you can get voicemail set up with this thing (though that looks like it's not free..maybe $5 for 3 months).

Cliff,

Rocky was talking to me when you called him up ( actually heard your voice a little over the phone ). I think he's free for a spike call now.  ;)

Well this bitch (computer) is brand new so I'll try it too as soon as I get a headset/mike.

Honestly, I've never even had phone sex so if we're talking gardening and all the sudden you hear me swoon well, then, you'll know what happened.  Just warning you! :P

WARNING!

Unless you are running Windows 2000 or XP, Skype isn't (well it does sort of) going to work.

I'm running ME and it's screwing up my computer something awful.

I can't open my Home Page when I log into IE.

I've added the same 3 names to my contact list 5 times today.  The minute I put my computer on stand-by, POOF! the contacts are gone.

When I try and reboot, the computer has a hissy fit and 2 or 3 progams don't open.  When I do the 3 finger whammy it's always the same 3 programs (forget which ones now) that "aren't responding".

I run Windows XP and everything went smoothly. I just made my first test with Rocky and worked just fine. I will probably buy a better microphone though as I hate this cheap thing I got with my sound card.

I just can't believe Markmt thinks I'm demure.
Yhe last time anybody thought I was demure......might have been when I was about ten. ;D *cackle  cackle guffaw*

If I was straight you would have thrown me is an ocean of fantacy honey  ;D...thihi

Well I didn't wait until "tomorrow", I went and got a new computer last night.  Hopefully, this will end the long saga I've been dealing with once and for all!

I'm happy with it so far (cept I miss the eraser head cursor mover, and hate the touch pad thing, but I'm told I'll get used to it). (It's got dualing processors or something like that.  Theres 2 g's (grannys?) RAM. 100 g (granny driving hard) and cool blue glowy lights all over the key board!  (I think it's an HP--don't know for sure frankly).  Oh Yeah it's also got a nice wide screen!

This all came about cause my old computer just couldn't handle the skype thingy!  I figure since Cliff suggested it, it killed my computer forcing me to buy a new one, well then he ought to pay for part of it!  Don't you all think?

I guess so...anyone buying a $600.00 white shirt is considered wealthy.  8)
