Date for your Filofax - Sunday 7th Nov 2010

We are going to run another conference roundtable voice chat using Skype.  Although Group Video Calling is now available in Beta on Skype it only works on the Windows Client, so for this forthcoming chat I would prefer to stick to a known voice format...'if it ain't broke, don't fix it' as they say!

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 7th November from mid-day (US East Coast time), 5pm London time, 6 pm Paris time etc.

Where? - an on-line chat using Skype.

What do I need? - just a micro-phone and a free Skype account.

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.

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...

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.... 

I'm looking forward to this chat as it will be just before the London meet later in November. Hope to be chatting with you next Sunday. 


  1. I should be able to make it this time. I think I have got over the problem of my laptop having no sound as I can use skype on my iPad. I tried it with DH and it worked a dream so hopefully it will work out :-)

  2. Looking forward to it. Just a reminder in regards to US/Canada citizens - the clocks fall back Saturday night...though I'm sure this is already mentioned in the US/C Filos.

  3. Unfortunately, I don't believe I'll be there... My home PC which is where I would put Skype is not working right so my database guru boyfriend is coming over around an hour before the time of the call to fix. I shouldn't be rude by being on the call while he's in the house. LOL! I thought of a new year's resolution: Learn how to use Flickr so I can post some nice pics of my A5!

  4. Hi Michele
