The Skype chat..after the various international local time changes...... has made the present start time adjustment necessary.

The Sunday chats will start at 12:00 noon EST or 1:00 pm CST time US which corresponds to 8 pm in Europe..until the time changes again due to Daylight Savings time or whatever it's called elsewhere.

It's more like 1:30 to 2:00 pm Central Time start time. Just depends on who is logged in. We still got some video chat room screen space for more participants. The attached grabs are from today. From France, Scotland, Alabama, Florida, and 20 below zero in Canada.

On the face of it, it looks as thouigh it could be better........

Well, I just tried to set up Teamspeak and although the blurb says it is easy I would find it easier to design and build an intergalactic space ship from scratch.

Need to look again...........

Skype has an update that is more of a real update than all the other updates. It looks different and the controls are in different places and work differently. It has some added functions. The video cam screens of people in a group are bigger and fill out your entire monitor when connected with several people with all of their video links active. You can change who is where on the screen and delete or enlarge your own camera image. The uploads of jpg images... even fairly large images... goes quicker. You can do some other things you couldn't before with letting people see what you are seeing on a linked site for instance. It's still a little confusing, but I think they actually improved it.
