A date for your Filofax - 6 January 2013

New York

Sao Paulo



We are going to run another conference round-table voice chat using Skype.

I'm sure we are gradually getting to know each other's voices, but I will make a point of going 'around the table' to get everyone to introduce themselves this time.

So...When, Where, What, Who and How?

When? - Sunday 6 January from 10am (US East Coast time), 3pm London time, 4 pm Paris time etc.  See the clocks at the top of this post to see roughly what time you should be on line.

Where? - an on-line chat using Skype.

What do I need? - just a micro-phone and some head phones(in ear phones work fine) and a free Skype account. Using headphones reduces 'echo' on the call.

Who - All of you... connect up with Philofaxy and we will attempt to get as many of us linked in to the audio conference as possible. Come and listen if you don't want to chat.

How -
  1. Connect to Philofaxy by firstly searching for Philofaxy in Skype, I will then add you as a contact.
  2. Then  'Start Chat',  I will then add you in to the chat room. 
  3. Then if you request it, I can add you to the audio conference as well. But if you just want to chat via keyboard that's fine. That way it's slightly less hectic for me! 
Come and join in the fun, even if you only pop in to say hello...

As with previous round-tables there will also be a parallel text chat room going at the same time as the voice conference.

If you need any assistance setting up Skype, please pop a comment in this post and I will try and help you get one line. Skype is free for computer to computer calls....

Here is my post on how to improve your Skype audio with headphones or a headset.

Hope to be chatting with you on Sunday 6 January 2013


  1. I don't have a computer, only an iPad - I have Skype on it, will that be ok?

    1. Yes you will be able to join in with Skype on your iPad.

  2. Yayyy!! I'm not working on the 6th!! I've written the skype chat into my DodoPad filo insert :)

  3. I'm going to try to download Skype on my iPad for next Sunday.. I'll bring my best Texas accent, y'all!

  4. Are the clocks changing again in the US? What an odd time of the year to do so... Are they going forwards or backwards? (I'm confused as I remember Spring Forwards, Fall Back, but this is half-way between the two...)

    1. Ah... the line has been removed so I guess it was a cut and paste moment???
      Phew - I was thinking I had missed some major clock change every year!
