Wow, I have something that does that. It's called a phone.

Although it could prove useful if you have a laptop with a decent wifi reciever...

I have it but have never used it. I had it on my old computer because I was trying to talk to my boyfriend with it, but my comp was too slow. I had high hopes for using it when I got this computer, but now my boyfriends computer is crap! tongue.gif

Most of the people who frequent IRC have some form of Skype, but most likely don't use it anymore.

I'm rarely on simply because my mic is crap and I'm never home, but if you want to look me up, my sn is TheAnge.

Because most phones have free international calling, right? tongue.gif My phone bill would be astronomical if I used it in place of skype.

I have skype...but I think most people who know me even a little bit already know that. I actually shudder to think of the amount of time I spend on there, since it's the easiest way for moop and I to talk since we're currently on separate continents. That's all I use it for, though. I find it really awkward to talk with people I don't know so well on there (although that is how moop and I got to know eachother so well, but nevermind tongue.gif )

Well, I guess, but I don't find myself talking to people from Indochina or whatever that often.

Some of us have friends outside our own neighbourhood...

But if people that already have an internet connection want to pay for long distant phone calls, then good luck to those people!

Yep, exactly.

I think there's some thingy thing that skype has where you can purchase a phone number (fairly inexpensively) for your family/friends to call, and they pay the same rates that they would if they were calling a US phone. I miiight be thinking of something else, though. I'm thinking of doing that when I move to the UK. My parents have pretty good international rates, but they have free long distance to US numbers...and of course there's my extended family as well. I'm going to attempt to set my parents up with a skype account...but they're kind of...what's the word I'm looking for? Well, my dad never uses the computer, and my mom constantly needs my help when she uses it. And my extended family is even worse. We'll see.

You can actually buy phones for skype too

Like this one

or even this cool thing that forwards the calls to other phones, like your cell phone
