I thought my cell phone addiction would be satiated the day I can upgrade to a Treo 650 but noooo! Some clown has to one up me with a $300,000 cell phone! Guess I’d better get to saving. Sorry about college kids. You know.. the phone.

Thank you blogj!

Enhance your website with Skype June 27, 2006 2:02 pm

My status

Are you a Skype user? Want to enhance your website by giving users the ability to call you from a link? Call Doug Or perhaps you want to give your users an easy way to add your Skype link to their contacts. Add Doug as a Skype contact

Those links will fail if you haven’t installed Skype on your computer. So some javascript can help changing the error message to a prompt to download Skype. Call Doug or if you don’t have skype get prompted to install

Instead of calling, perhaps you want to text chat with Doug. There are other links for conference calls, regular phone numbers, viewing profiles, and even sending files.

These techniques are described in Skypes Advanced Links. Also read How to show your Skype status on the web.
