Hype aboaut Skype (seriously OT)

I will be heading to Ukraine on the 21st of this month. As Vino is no longer employed, he will have plenty of time to train me and so it should be a great trip (of course he lives in Khazakstan, but when he's not in Mexico he prefers to train in Ukraine).

I inquired about telecommunications about 2 months ago and you folks were kind enough to stear me to Skype. It's really cool when I can get it to work, which is almost never.

It says I'm blocking the connection, although I've disabled my "BSafe" firewall and gave my browser permission to run the site anytime.

Anyone else have this problem? How didya fix it?

You have to unblock the "BLOCK UNSAVORY CHARACTER" option.

Fine then. Just fine.

Fine.

I got it working, BTW, by 1) turning my computer on and off a few times, 2) checking the "OK, send me your stupid spam" box, and 3) always numbering things. No thanks to you.

You've found the cure to all computer problems- and you knew about it all the time. Now when you get the next problem you know how to correct it. It is not throw it out of the window with all your other toys. That gets dangerous as DG might be riding round to you to give you a hand at fixing it and Ruby might get scared and bolt with him firmly in the saddle for about 62.37 miles.

I was going to send you to the Self Help section but then it wouldn't be Self Help now would it?
