  • TFG1Mike Mike Blanchard (@TFG1Mike) reported

    @SCP21 @BirdmanDodd That's because Microsoft hates Canada apparently. All I'm saying is ever since the updated version of MP3 Skype call recorder I never had an issue with not getting files.

    if you take a skype pill all you hear is “welcome to skype call testing service” in your head on repeat for 6 hours

    imagine leading an army into battle from a nearby location via group skype, your phone has a broken display and speakers, you’re only able to send instructions but can’t receive any feedback, the only feedback you get is bellows of agony and death, + you can’t leave your location

  • stevenjkerzner Steven J. Kerzner (@stevenjkerzner) reported

    @thebookbro @EdtheSock @BobRae48 @iTunes For the record, the issue was with Skype. We paid for a different recording platform after this interview, no problems since. Just too bad it had to happen with someone this prestigious with so much worth listening to.

  • TheBlackHylian Link🏳️‍🌈 [re:run] (@TheBlackHylian) reported

    If you exchanged contact info with people: Sit 'em down if they got time, call em up. Real talk. No social media, texting, Discord/Skype either. Give them a phone call. It hits different and you quickly end up realizing how much power it has.

  • sawleenuh SalinaJ (@sawleenuh) reported

    just wanna lay down and sob. How do I miss the most important Skype call ever----UGH

  • lacourier71360 Jacob Swift (@lacourier71360) reported

    A friend is willing to Skype in for Saturday’s game night, but asked me to write up 3 different characters for him to choose. The scenario is based in v3.5 and he doesn’t remember all of the rules. While I’m down for this, I wonder if I’m projecting my own concept wishes.

  • WimpyBoy_89 Mad Max ☠The Road Warrior ☠ (@WimpyBoy_89) reported

    @spenderaka @yoalexrapz Nope. You can also go through a charter school that provides a teacher (and a budget of $ for you) that will meet w/ you every few weeks & review kids work & help, or do a combo w/online teachers that do entire live classes via a skype type system with a bunch of kids at one time

    @ReginaldKonga @ther2view @AwesomeHyperon The only problem is I don't have a microphone or a Skype or Discord so really I'm just talking not really saying this is something that will happen in the near future or anything. But it could be fun.

    @Cmdr_Hadfield @satyanadella @Microsoft @Windows @Skype @MSEdgeDev @Forbes it is becoming increasingly difficult to wear my security guy hat in the face of updates that freeze Windows or crash your PC. Worse yet, some Windows updates have even broken security features. Thank you @happygeek !

  • njblain Nicholas J Blain (@njblain) reported

    I'm not a huge fan of #Skype as a messaging service. One of the worst offenders at just hanging for a few minutes every time I need to type a message. Just now seen a #HappyNewYear message from 2nd Jan. Menus and notifications so obscure on current versions. #betterlatethannever

  • marybethwest Mary Beth West, MPRCA, APR, Fellow PRSA (@marybethwest) reported from Maryville, Tennessee

    @VictorVrsnik @Caanz @EllaMinty @i_kostopoulos @PRSA My outcry over these issues led the then-PRSA Nat’l Chair to hold a Skype call with my local PRSA chapter board in Knoxville, TN, where I live/work, in which she defamed my motives & professionalism (I was not present to defend myself). #PowerAndInfluence

  • Cilllah Priscilla McElligott (@Cilllah) reported

    The next two months are going to be hell for me and easily the busiest two university months ever. I’m really nervous and it means I have to give up all of my free time and it sucks because it means no Skype with Anthony. Wish we were living together so it wasn’t a problem.

  • aDillonDev DilDev (@aDillonDev) reported

    She only starts engaging with Kylo in the Force Skype after Luke consistently rejects her need for some sort of emotional connection. Even tho the deleted Third Lesson scene makes her hurt from Luke's rejection more obvious, his previous dismissals have been wearing her down.
