Many people no longer use Skype, especially not for matters of importance.
Although, many of us have still got it to communicate it with people that we know from the "normal" world.

Have folk cottoned on to KimDotComs substitue?
Not only skype Rose, but it seems this site was not accessible for about 2 days with an "unexplained error 500' message. Might need to save all the goodies onto a hard drive as a backup.
