    In order to be heard, you have to download a copy of the Skype Beta program Version 3

    It will just be a chance to put a voice to the snob, swap tall stories and have a chin wag.

    I see it lasting about half an hour or so.

    Well we Skype for Linux users can only have 4 + me in a conference....

    So I assume I can hear..... but not be heard

    Could be an advantage ;) ;D

    We can accomodate 99 users.

    Obviously the host determines who speaks etc but if you load Skype Beta we can hear everything you have to say!

    What is the compatibilty with Mac version? I have skype for my Mac but got the only version that was available. Doesnt look promising from what is written above maybe we will have to have a Mac coffee snob skype session, not that there are many Macs out there :( But we go for quality over quantity :)

    Nope - I think Macs are in the same boat as linux/unix users.

    But we go for quality over quantity
    Gotta agree with that ;)

    I am sure there will be plenty with the opposite opinion on my statement though JavaB. But I have thicker skin than that and was meant as pure tongue and cheek which most people will get (but not all). Atleast I have someone else to team up with ;)

    Hey JB,

    Which distro of Linux do you use? Im getting close to the stage where I want to push windoze over the edge of a high cliff face and absolutely do not want to buy in to the so-called Vista release.....

    Mal,

    Im using Ubuntu, with the KDE front end - or as it is called Kubuntu.

    http://kubuntu.org/

    Extremely stable, very good range of applications and well supported. Id recommend version 6.10 (current stable release).

    Yeah I am planning on being online for this as well. I have downloaded skype and ready to roll once the details are known. I have never used it but downloaded it for this very special event. Cant get the beta version for Mac but will be able to hear I guess.

    What timezone are we operating with for this? With the whole daylight savings time confusing the issue with Presso being in QLD and I am in NSW.

    It was great to put a voice to those posts!

    Thanks for dropping in, Im not sure how skypecasts can fit in, maybe if there is a specific theme, mind you as host you have a lot of flicking to do. Keeping people in the waiting room etc etc so it would probably be better done by someone more tech savvy than me! :D

    It was a good event indeed. The whole voice to the name thing is very intersting indeed. I have the Mac edition of Skype and could both talk and hear so that was cool. Even a guest appearance from some little Grendels, so fun for the whole family. I think it went for about 50 minutes so probably would have never ended if there had of been more involved.

    Thanks to Cameron for hosting it :)

    Doh! Had to work as usual on Saturdays :(

    Would have been interesting in the least to chat with other CSers from around the country.
