Oh my gosh, I was just speaking about this to my son this week. I would love to have it because of my family in Michigan. But then Fantod could always call them for me!!! I will read emails again about getting set up then look out.

I received a GPS for Christmas, so now I can go and not get lost. What a thrill that was. Technology never stops does it.

Well, Hi there Susan. I was getting really worried about you. I hope that your cloud has lifted.

Skype is easy. Go online and find the homepage for Skype. Download the program that is compatible with your computer. That takes about 10 seconds. Make a note of your Skype name so fibro fog doesn't get the best of you (lol). Skype will then "reside" in the toolbar on the lower right hand side of your computer screen. Everytime you turn on your computer, Skype loads automatically. Just click on the Skype logo on the toolbar and it will open up. You can add contacts from there. You can look people up using their email (like your son) and if they are not Skype users send them an invitation to join. It works very well. I talk to my cousins who live in England and New Zealand all of the time. Lots of fun and I can give them a good scare sans makeup with my webcam. Join us!

Its been awhile since ive been able to check in on the board. My life has been alittle crazy right now, but should start getting better now since i got my sons college paperwork done! Im so pleased to see that 3 more of you are gonna join us on skype! Since i started using it, I absolutely love it! If i need to talk to someone, and no ones around, I just sign on to sype. I can usually catch someone on there to talk to. If I have a question about something, I can try calling Fantod, or Noca to get me an answer. Try it, you have absolutely nothing to loose. If you dont like it, you just shut down your skype, its that simple. Hope to see more of you on skype!

w do i get this skype thing? can anyone tell me?


Fantod - February 5

You'll find it online - just use Google. If you have a microphone on your computer, you are all set. A webcam is nice but necessary. The free program takes about 10 seconds to download. Calls between Skype users are free anywhere in the world. It is very easy to use.

Noca is our leader in this endeavor -his Skype name is: keith45678. Send a request to add him to your contact list including that you are from the FMS board. Find him and you'll find the rest of us! Welcome and I hope that your bad head is feeling better!
