Spent last night trying to get Skype set-up on my machine, so I could speak to Ken with VoIP. It was definitely an exercise of frustration. Turns out that Fedora Core 2 has issues with recording sounds from a microphone, so I’m currently hosed. Looks like this will be corrected in Fedora Core 3, so I’ll have to wait until after November 8th to get this working. I was able to hear Ken fine over my speakers, but it’s sorta disconcerting to have a one way conversation, with me only able to reply by typing. Oh well, I’ll give this another try in 2 weeks.
