    Finally we got my wife's family setup on Skype.
    She hasn't seen her Father in 3 years, nor her brand new cousin.
    Her family is in Aguascalientes, Mexico.

    Skype is awesome.

    Oh fuck, what is this?

    Can we please just stop inventing new Internet shit I have to buy or know until I sober up?

    Is that too much to ask?

    Skype's a VoIP (Voice over IP) to make cheap or free calls worldwide including video calls if you have a mic and webcam.
    Ubuntu 10.10 uses Empathy as its default VoIP application, earlier versions used Ekega. Vonage supposedly works that way also. There are ways to connect a land line to your computer to take full advantage of the applications available.
