Hi Andy,
pay attention. I normally use iCHAT as the medium, which also works
with PC-based AIM. The problem I had with Skype was that they
modified something on my harddrive deep down, and it took me a while
to discover, because something didn't work anymore.

academia and in the wrong hemisphere) this offers a really cheap
option for participating in these international discussions, so I do
agree with Mark that this looks like a good artefact to use in learning.
