Skype is wonderful

just spent about 30 minutes trying to get my wife to fax our passport #s to our hotel in argentina so that they could arrange our travel accomodations to uruguay.  why do they need our passport #s in the first place?  perhaps b/c we’ll be traveling to another country.  either way, i didn’t want to send that type of info in an email since anything commited to digital memory somehow stays there forever.  i’m just being slightly paranoid.  so instead i ask cindy to make a personal fax from her office w/ the info (i’m stuck at home w/o a fax).  after 15 minutes of trying, she says that nobody in the office can get it to work.  who knows why?  the fax # was correct, but it just wasn’t going through.  then she displayed her brilliance – ‘why don’t you just call them?’  ahhh, yes – call them!  i forgot i had put credit on my skype account yesterday to make calls to argentina and uruguay!  so i fired up my good buddy skype, called the hotel, and had the whole thing taken care of w/in a few minutes.  and at $.02 a minute to argentina versus the likely many dollars an international fax would cost, how could you go wrong?!  skype rocks.

    SKYPE rocks!!!
    It´s soooooooooooo useful and cheap to make calls while I´m at work… or just to talk to some people from other cities, countries.

    Really really good, and its sound quality is way better than Messenger (when it´s from computer to another one).

    yeah, the quality is very good – it’s been indistinguishable from a regular phone. plus, i’ve got a cam built into my Macbook, so i get to broadcast my beautiful mugshot to the world when i’m on skype. 🙂
