DearWebby is actually Helmut Morscher, the CEO of Webby, inc.

Originally the "Tech Support Pits" were reports of the funniest tech support incidents, but over the years the column gradually shifted to answering tech support questions put forward by the readers of the Dear Webby Humor Letter.

This collection of computer and web advice was started partly because readers demanded an archive, and partly because some questions were asked again and again. Each page has a different day's Tech Support Pits column.

Have FUN!

07/25/05: How good is Skype for Internet Phone?

Tech Support Pits:
From Mark=== Dear Webby, How good is Skype for Internet Phone? Is it worth getting it installed ? Mark Dear Mark Well, for starters, Skype is free, has no ads and no spyware. That means, even if you don't like it, you don't lose anything. If you have DSL, and the person you are calling also has DSL and also has Skype installed, the voice quality is quite a bit better than over regular long distance phones. The system is financed by the NOT quite free Skype-Out and Skype-IN. Skype OUT is for calling to people who don't have high speed Interne and who have to be called on their land line phonet, Skype-IN is for those people to call you from a regular phone. Charges work out to under 3 cents per minute. If you have a long-distance lover who has DSL or cable, get it. If you spend a lot of time on long distance to customers or relatives who have high speed Internet, get it. You don't have to saw off your regular land line or cell phone. You still continue using that. But it can reduce your phone bills and improve voice quality. If you get it, most definitely get a comfortable head-set (head-phones and microphone combo) . They are cheap and your voice does not cut out when you glance away from a stationary microphone to for example a wall calendar. Also keep in mind that a $4.95 head set won't provide CD quality sound, but a $19.95 set probably will. Wireless models are available, but those are generally over $100 if you want one that has a decent reach.. Have FUN! Dear Webby
