The quality of the service is good. LOTS of reservations about security. I can't speak to that in detail, but I've been in the room when the data guys were discussing it and did not think the benefits outweighed the possible risks.

Skype is an IM kinda chat thingie that also allows telephone calls. Used here at work as a sign-in/sign-out board and quick notes around the office.

Works well, as long as the servers stay up. It was out last week for almost all of Friday the 17th.


it's all tip and ring
