    Well it all started with chainsaws - Kind of understandable, being a woodwork forum and all - but there are always sinister connotations around chainsaws. I should have seen the warning signs but I ignored them.

    Somehow one day, while we were already teetering on the edge of a slippery slope, Pagie dropped us into freefall by introducing a mystery tool. It wasn't even a woodworking tool as most of us thought we were talking about, but a circumcision tool.

    As we continued our downward descent at a rapidly increasing rate, we then passed through castration.

    Now we have descended to beheading and there appears to be nothing halting our further descent.

    I am becoming extremely concerned because the further down the slippery slope we go the bits that are getting chopped off are becoming larger and more essential. We have been falling so fast that we flew straight past more common but still unfortunate woodworking accidents like fingertips, whole fingers, thumbs or hands.

    How deep will we go?
    If you ask me what I am doing on a particular day and I say I am doing nothing, it does not mean I am available. It means I am doing nothing.

    Nothing wrong with cutting bits off. If you don't use them, loose them.
    I am learning, slowley.

    Well we had another go at stuffing up Skype. We are not the best at it. But we had a look at some bow saws and ideas of how to make them.

    Default My Skype communication problem - Solved, maybe

    My apologies for the problems I have been causing trying to participate in your skype chats. I know the problem and think I have found a work around.
    The problem is hardware related and exacerbated by the fact the Microsoft (who bought Skpe in 2011 - I think) have not been releasing driver updates suitable for my computer HP Pavilion dvt7 - 3008TX. If they have, I cannot find anywhere, including Microsoft's & HP's websites, where I can download the drivers . The latest I can find is 2011.

    I seem to be able to set the necessary system options in Windows 10 so that I can communicate with Skype, but as soon as I plug in the head phones the options get reset back the their previous settings. Hence why I have been able to set up the system and check it out with Matt it all works OK, but then wont work when I plug the headphones in prior to the meeting so Maureen can continue to watch TV without the annoyance of the sound from my laptop. Skype will not communicate through the external microphone / speaker connection, even when this is set as the default.

    So the work around is to set up in another room, reset all necessary system options, cross both fingers and both eyes and hope that no-one calls me for a video call thru messenger - in which case I have to set up the system options again!

    If anyone has any better solutions I would sure love to hear them.

    Cheers
    Bob

    Well sounds like (pun intended) that bob has it worked out.....

    I am certainly not a Skype expert but most of the time if your using the Skype client rather than via a web browser then generally it should just work.... weird audio hardware issues excluded

    if you have ever joined the Jabber then the meeting should always be in Skype, no need to click the link from the thread, just open Skype and join the meeting.

    It does mean the meeting can take place anytime and be up to 24hrs long.

    Microsoft is pushing people to use Teams over Skype but I haven't fully sussed out a set of steps for Teams yet.

    Cheers
    Phil

    Thanks Phil and Matt for the comments.
    I guess that my problems are compounded by age, not just mine but also my equipment.My laptop and most of my computer equipment needed for Skype etc was bought when I was teaching photography and Photoshop (1999 - 2012). Consequently the laptop doesn't have WIFI capability - in fact I noticed yesterday that HP have listed it as "discontinued" which I believe also means 'no longer supported'.

    Matt, I will give you a call later today to setup a another test run with Skype, if you can make a few minutes available.

    Cheers Bob

    Matt & Phil,
    Thanks for making your time available, I am confident that I have a workable solution - not ideal, but probably as good as I can expect with the software and hardware limitations of my aging system.

    Cheers
    Bob.

    Alas, Bob, I think that the basic problem is that your laptop has had too many birthdays - just like me and you!

    Your HP Pavilion Dv7 3008TX was released in mid 2009 - 12 years ago - which is antediluvian in computereze. You/we are all victims of planned obsolescense. They progressively add "features" to software which progressively requires higher specifications in the hardware, particularly the video card, CPU and memory. Then they stop supporting old software and the old hardware ....

    The only good news is that laptops are now half the price of 12 years ago.

    For Matt, as requested - my secret recipe for handle/bench finish

    1 part Pure gum terpentine
    1 part BLO
    add grated bees wax until you can't get more to dissolve

    Shake well before pplying.

    Let it soak in for 24 hours then wipe off and buff (any excess that is wiped off can be reused)

    Additional instructions for millennials - Do not drink it.
    If you ask me what I am doing on a particular day and I say I am doing nothing, it does not mean I am available. It means I am doing nothing.
