Skype Tip

Here’s a handy tip for those of you using Skype: As you may know, when you are getting poor call quality, sometimes just hanging up and calling again will improve it. However, when this fails, try hanging up and setting your Skype status to Offline for at least 15 seconds before trying to call again (tech note: this apparently forces connection through a different supernode).
I read about this in a conference dedicated to the book, Skype Hacks, and just tried it the other day – it works!
By the way, if any of you want to chat on Skype sometime, my handle is, predictably, “cosmicbuddha”.
