Today I opened a Skype account. It was easy enough to do. I am in the Ukraine and my internet access is slow, so it took about 20 minutes to accomplish the task. On the downside, I immediately received nine website popups from Skype trying to sell me new services. That is too agressive for me. I also received an email from Skype, but since I am in the Ukraine, the email was in Ukrainian. I have no idea if it’s important or not. I added my prof to my Skype list and am now awaiting his reply. If I have time, I might try making a Skype phone call.
