    @linda_rettstatt I do! We actually Skype once a month. It's extremely helpful. It's been a great way to know what is or is not working in my MS and I have a sounding board to throw out ideas or solutions. Small groups tend to work best. There's four total in mine.

    @raygank @superporing Hi Raygan, I just wanted to let you know we were able to track down this problem. Version 2.8.9 was posted this morning, which includes the fix. Upon opening Skype, you should see a msg to update. Let me know how it goes. I agree we should have done better in alerting last week.

    @SkypeSupport Don't even have access to my voice mail, so sad, don't know what to do now, I am without any phone service at all. With voice mail I would drive to whoever called me & chat in person. I hope I can stop crying over this turn of events in my life...

    Hi @SkypeSupport, my account has been hacked and all my details changed. It’s merrily spamming all my contacts but won’t let me close the account or change my password until January 9. Which, to be honest, isn’t good for me. Help please.

    @martingeddes Martin I already suggested I could talk to her (via skype) - or maybe you to start with. I DO have a lot to offer but we have to talk first to see HOW I can help her - even long-distance. I'm in continental Europe.

    Thanks for all the show messages woke up to, just to let you all know, the reason the audio is spot on, I sat through the entire show, like the good old days, we had sorted the cut outs, but then stupid out of sync issues, so think it’s back to Skype for Xmas recording.👍

    have made it due to visa issues, they could have participated remotely through Skype on the big screen. Big deal. Excuse #2: “Actions are judged by intentions” Yes they are. So did you knowingly “intend” to enhance the reputation of a thuggish criminal regime or did (3/17)

    If you are an internet based business, primarily using #IG, #twitter, #whatsapp, #reddit, #tumbler, or even #facebook and #skype to advertise / monetize your product or service, then you must take some time to learn about accepting payments through #cryptocurrency.

    @RogueAmoeba @mcbramhill The thing I really valued from Call Recorder is that I would know for sure they were recording the right audio source (the same input as Skype.) I had a few early issues with folks recording their laptops built in mic or a headset mic (or nothing) by mistake.

    @PeterIrving5 @ruledbynutters @SkyNewsAust @ScottMorrisonMP @Skype Where do we start. Let’s start with the fact that those that have been brought here we’re done under court order which the Government fought all the way. Then there is the issue that there is no link to border security if as they say the are turning back the boats.
