 Aglaia  ok click on it and it will lead you to the Skype conference
 birgul  i am there actually listening to a few people speaking at the same time
 osnacantab  Can you tell us what the breakthrough was?
 lynne.kahatapitiya  hey birgul...ur lite years ahead of me...
 Aglaia  as Moira said, if you listen it means it's ok
 Aglaia  but as you, i don't know if we continue through e-mail.
 Aglaia  Does anyone here know how will we continue the course?
 sendkathy  cathyfiddle, I don't have a webcam on my laptop at this time.
 lynne.kahatapitiya  email aglaia
 birgul  i am wondering if i am listening to it thru the mp3 link or skypecast
 cem  Birgul are on skype also?
 birgul  yes, cem
 osnacantab  The screencasts are works of art! Tremendously helpful.
 cathysfiddle  Anybody here a Mac user like myself? I'd like to use Skypecast but I don't think that's possible. All I get is the window that says who's there, but I'm unable to get sound
 cem  66 isn't it?
 birgul  sure it is cem
 cem  thanx
 lee  yes it is and i am on mac
 Graham  me too
 cathysfiddle  sendKathy , I never use my webcam. I'd have to get dressed etc for that!
 Graham  have you got the latest version of skype Cathy?
 Aglaia  Birgul do you see contacts or someone in Skype? I have the feeling that would indicate you are through Skype
 greenstuder  5'm on Mac, too and for me it works
 cathysfiddle  the latest for Mac is not the latest for PC
 cathysfiddle  i do have the latest
 cathysfiddle  Who is the Kathy who is talking right now?
