While he is away, Skype is our lifeline, really. We can have a good chat every night cos it is free, whereas phone calls are limited to under 1 min cos of the cost.
OUr problem is...we can't connect to each other's accounts. I can hear him but he can't hear me...both of us have run test calls (fine) and skped other people (fine). My microphone settigns are correct - it seems as if his comp has blocked me in some way.
Can't help at all Slouchy I'm afraid, but I just wanted to commiserate. How bloody awful for you!
It's been very weird day here today (in an awful sort of way). 2 of the 3 roads into the village were flooded. Lots of houses flooded, a fire-engine drove down the road with a life-boat attached etc. etc.!
