Surely one doesn't have to pay for Skype
if it is used through the computer at each end?
Even my wife can do this, so it can't be that difficult.

Incidentally, I looked at various alternatives.
I came to the conclusion that asterisk would require
several weeks, if not months, of study,
while even ekiga challenged my weakening brain-cells.
I thought of getting a SIP-able Siemen's phone,
but didn't get round to it.
