    @LozzaFox @EE If you have voip - (Skype or something similar) you might still be able to call out via wifi Laurence, either with your phone or your laptop using a headset. Apologies if that's not much help.

    @dory_tori To use Line Pay (among other functions) through the Line app, they want you to confirm via text, and the only phone number I currently have is the one through Skype. I'll go into Edion after school tomorrow and see if someone can help me break through this in person. >_<

    You ran skype on a potato, I never had problems. Only complaint was the limit on who can be on a call at a given time without paying for it

  • im_mayumii 🥶 (@im_mayumii) reported

    I’m sorry but I’m the creation of this fandom. Do u know how many theories I’ve seen since MAMÁ this morning. Also, I can’t help but recall the time YoonGi started with “the top secret information” and Namjoon took the kill shot and announced a possible tour over skype.

    @PunishedSapph @UndeadedArchon I'd ******* kill to be able to strip discord down to it's bare bones, reminds me of back when I used Skype and it had ads on it which weren't particularly intrusive on their own but had about a dozen times the memory usage, once blocked it ran smoothly though.

  • SevinUnderHer Sevin (@SevinUnderHer) reported

    Face to face at the airport W/we came. O/our eyes met across the terminal. This was an awkward moment broken only by a hug. I pulled Her in so She could hear my beating heart. Then it hit me. No longer was She behind my phone screen. No more was She a voice on Skype.

  • Old_Trickster Schwann "Raven" Oltolrain (@Old_Trickster) reported

    if they post anything that has a remote level of risque nature to it, it's likely that RPers on Twitter will end up facing similar issues. Though, last time something like this happened, I attempted to invite RPers to add me on Skype (this was back in like...2013...), but to

  • shoobe01 Steven Hoober (@shoobe01) reported

    @cydharrell My experience is that Skype, as relentlessly stupid as it is, at least works essentially every time. Constantly blowing whole meetings due to connectivity issues with literally every other service we’ve tried. Awesome to hear even this is not consistently reliable though.

  • prepaid_africa The Prepaid Economy (@prepaid_africa) reported

    I must close the tab. I'm using free level of Zencastr and I'm thrilled with in browser p2p VoIP quality. Audio had some challenges today but it was raining in Nairobi during our talk. Skype would have wilted in a terrible way.

  • LouLouMason Lou-Lou Mason (@LouLouMason) reported

    @virginmedia Jane very kindly managed to find small discount for rest of my contract year, but this isn't enough compensation for lack of service. If i work from home & i'm logged into business skype & doing back to back skype calls & my BB drops out, it takes at least 10 mins to reset... /4

  • Queen_Caviv Queen_Caviv (@Queen_Caviv) reported

    My interview was terrible. All my devices decided to just misbehave. My PC became slow and decided to crash, now it won't come on. My Skype was misbehaving. It was terrible. Cried. Oh well, now I have to wait a month before I can apply again. I'm just so tired.

  • woominchans v 💫 (@woominchans) reported

    hate myself for it but the start of that live made me think about fel¡x going down on ch.n under his desk while he’s on skype or smth,, trying to act normal like nothings going on while l¡xie tries to make him break and end the call because he can’t stay quiet

  • pavelgregory Mouth of Matuszak (@pavelgregory) reported

    @UnrealAllan @LostJavaCat With that last limitation, which inhibits collaboration with subcontractors, it is a step down from Skype for business.

  • FPL_Dave FPL Dave (@FPL_Dave) reported

    @Shadii_Mo @LetsTalk_FPL This is the answer ma man. When you go past the threshhold when speaking skype or whatever you're using turns your volume down to compensate. Most annoying thing ever. Also, I know we spoke about an external interface, thats a great way to control volume levels. Good ol' knobs!

    @Barnacules Slightly. 230lbs as of august. Binge eating combine with depression-induced low dopamine causes issues. Mom thinks I still look the same on Skype, so I am probably OK. Usually binge eating doesn't cause issues when I am really happy, but when I am depressed... Food is life...

  • NotYouRaps IAmNotYou (@NotYouRaps) reported

    I gave in and did one phone interview during TBB because of Skype being "unprofessional" and let me tell you it was the most awful, awkward interview I held down Didnt even bother posting it and I was really geeked to have the person on the show Shit was def a momentum killer

  • eissyrc cryssie (@eissyrc) reported

    @Wildsau @ericpet Its called video relay service. Yes, its app based. Similar to the idea of Skype/Facetime but w/ an interpreter. We can also do voice carry over for deaf folks who dont want to sign but speak. Basically they speak, and what you say will be interpreted in ASL by the interpreter.

  • dccmckay Deirdre McKay (@dccmckay) reported

    @KTeaiwa Some Filipino migrants I interviewed left their Skype or FaceTime on for many minutes, live-streaming a soundscape of TFL back home. Their kids would listen, ‘Yes, Mum’s getting down from the bus now..., walking to her employer.’ Together apart.

    @scottsmithdev Thanks for this, it’s definitely a solution to my Xcode problem but then slack, Skype etc... will all open up on the wrong screen instead. I’ll make this change as I’m constantly open/closing Xcode but wondering if there’s a per app solution
