    @britldn @VeryBadLlama Skype for Business EOL is July 31, 2021. It’s terrible for anything other than audio (ie: screen sharing or video). Blame the code.

    skype call. you even went so far to say you blocked @vIonevogue because he was “doing too much” with your friends. like girl, you don’t need to always involve yourself in somebody’s issues. get your own backbone instead of being somebody else’s doormat. i really hate following

  • EmblemSupports Emblem Support Podcast: A Fire Emblem Podcast (@EmblemSupports) reported

    Had some audio issues with this one due to it being two separate recordings merged into one, but its overall still good. Goof and mess ups happened when recording over skype. So if its inconstant in anyway, its my fault.

    If you can't make it physically to conference (due to pandemic, budget, and travel issues), DCC session organizers themselves will be attempting to provide special arrangements (in the name of inclusivity) to include people via zoom or skype.

    @StitchIsMyPatro @alexandraknew @0xKruzr -- even decades later.
