OK, I'll byte:

1) I don't have skype, and don't plan on setting it up anytime soon.
(Does it even work on Linux?)

2) I'm not really all that keen on that form of communication; I have to 
attend webinars for work on occasion (and I have to set them up for 
others quite often) and I find them more of a PITA than the effort 
they're worth.


I'm much more of an "eyeball QSO" kind of guy; On the phone I have a 
hard enough time dealing with one individual, if there's a "round table" 
forum then dang-nabbit, there better be a *round table* with people 
around it discussing old computers, the occasional smartass joke and a 
barmaid bringing copious quantities of beer. That I can deal with. ;-)

[[ And don't even get me started on cellphones - I can't believe that 
it's taken technology 100 years to finally get to the voice quality of 
100 years ago... I thought stuff was supposed to get *better*??? ]]


I suppose all that ranting could be summed up by one simple phrase:
"Roger Likey Email." ;-)

BTW, I'm not ranting at you or anything, and I certainly hope your 
skypey thingamabob goes off well and everybody there has one helluva 
time. I'm just a bit more old-fashioned, I guess.
