    I was wondering about the possibility of having a skype directory for Funsters.

    I am fed up of getting calls from Munchie in France, when he reverses the charge.

    The call goes something like this.
    Ring ........ Ringgg.........Ring........ Ringgg.........Ring (Foreign telephone ring)

    "Est-ce que bonjour peut-elle appeler est-elle Claudia que je suis la France Telecomunications, j'ont M. Munchie sur la ligne qui souhaite te parler, vous accpet la charge ? "

    I get the main words Munche, parle charge, thats enought for me to say "Tell the old fool to bugger offt"

    Thoughts

    WaooOOO Dave .... That is some french ... from you that is!!!:Rofl1::Rofl1: You only show me your little killing phrases such as...... où je dump le poopoo? or ... je ne pas anglaise, je être galloise (BTW , i thought you were a male .... Must have missed something somehow :Doh::Laughing: ... according to me you should be " pas Anglais , je suis Gallois "... what seems to be just an "e" to most is much more than that for you .... if you allow me to say so.;;:Blush::BigGrin:)

    Never too late to learn another language, its easy as loung as you have access to the internet...

    I think I know what its meant to say, but, as Del Boy would say "Revenons a nos moutonst, servir frais mois non glace, apres vouse, avez vous le pickled onion? Mon Cherriue"

    This French bit is getting easier by the keystroke... By the end of the day, I shall have an O-level in it, Latin by Wednesday..

    Would this give any advantage to adding your SKYPE address to your profile?

    I have tried using the Skype button previously but it only ever seems to show people being off-line, including my own.........but I'm probably doing something stupid as usual:Doh:

    Everyone has their Skype address already displayed in their profile if they choose to.

    Yours looks like this Send Message Via Skype™ to ShiftZZ (Fraud_Research)

    When I set mine up I had to go in on SKYPE -

    -Tools
    -Options
    -Privacy settings
    then tick 'allow my online status to be shown on the web'

    it did work but I now see mine is shown as offline when it is on:Eek!:

    I think the reason mine was not showing on line at times when I am is me not waiting for the system to update.:RollEyes: We have noticed several times when we have had two computers on different SKYPE addresses that when one is switched off it takes some time for this to show on the other. Maybe its just a Gozo thing :Rofl1:.

    Must remember GMT = Gozo Maybe Time :Rofl1::Rofl1:

    I made the mistake of setting up my Skype button and now Hilda, Munchie and Pinky have all got themselves on my [STRIKE]friends[/STRIKE] wanted dead or alive list.
