Well, I have my new computer mostly up and working - silly me, thought I'd be clever and try using Windows XP x64, and that has caused me more headaches than all the hardware issues - my printer does not have drivers for 64 bit Windows, my old virus checker does not work on 64 bit, so have had to get another virus checker, and find that Real Audio does not work under 64 bit, so have downloaded Ral Alternative, which does the same job.

Had a hard disk failure, but at least it proved that RAID5 does what it is supposed to do.

Still have to put in the floppy drive (have an old floppy drive in there at present), and change one of the fans - the components all ended up arriving in bits and pieces, so those were the last bits to arrive, and I have not yet installed them.

And, yes, I have skype working (not sure if you will have enough bandwith to use skype without running some sort of broadband connection).  It is very nice not running out of hard disk (I have 500GB of disk available - OK, actually 750GB, but because of RAID5, 250GB is not accesible).  The system is a bit noisy, because I put as many fans as I could in there to keep it cool (maybe changing over that last fan might reduce noise a little - I hope so).

Will email you my skype address.

Would be very suprised if they can charge for basic skype in the very near future, since so much hardware has been sold on the back of skype being free (there is a charge for using Skype to non-skype users - e.g. skype to landline) - but ultimately, yes, I would guess much of what we expect for free on the Internet will be charged for, including skype.

Anyway, if skype does start charging, there are other alternatives - although skype is the largest VoIP network, if it begins to upset its uset base, there are alternaitives that user base can turn to.

I am so glad you are up and running! I did not know one needed so many fans in their computer! I have one I think. I can see into mine as one side is done in a clear panel to allow veiw! Thats interesting about the other companies. I hope all is good with connections for mine we will see. Talk to you soon!

I would guess you probably have 3 fans in your computer - that is normal.  One fan deep inside, sitting atop the processor, one fan that is part of the power supply unit, and another fan on the back of the case.  Often, the power supply fan (right next to where the power cord comes in) is the most obvious from the back of the machine.

Sometimes one can put a second fan on the back of the machine, but since my machine already has a 120mm fan at the back, I cannot fit a second one there (most machines have 80mm fans, and you can then fir a second).  You can add one or two fans at the front of most machines to help draw air in, and I have put two fans there (since I have 3 hard disks there, at least it helps push air past the hard disks), and I also have a separate fan on the side of the case.
