Well, Megan finally talked me into Skype. I have never seen the point: almost all my calls are from a mobile phone.
“It’s great for calling home from far-flung hotel rooms,” she said. Aha – now that IS a good idea. And, since I am writing this in Australia, timely advice as well.
Alas, one thing you cannot seem to do with Skype is buy credit from a hotel, because of the way most hotels access the internet. Consipracy, or cock-up? In this case, surely a cock-up. I hearby award Skype a Stupid Point and my glorious relationship with them as a paying customer will have to wait. Perhaps a very long time.
