Few things are more stressful than a Skype conversation that gets frozen and cut off over and over again. Some couples need to schedule a defined Skype-date window that has an end time, too, as chatting online can someone go on without end. Consider where you’re going to be when chatting over Skype. If you’re in a long-term, long-distance relationship, Skype is a way to introduce your partner to the things and people in your life that matter.
It's similar to another bug currently at large on i Phones.
Receiving a certain string of unicode characters on i OS can cause Messages and other apps to crash, and even force the device to reboot entirely.
(If you must chat in a public space, use the chatbox to reveal any personal details.) If you’re Skyping from home, make a little effort and clean up the place. Keep in mind that your date is equally as excited to see you as you are to see her.
There’s always a chance your date will ask for a bit of a virtual tour of your space, so don’t just shove your dirty laundry barely out of view, either. Make sure you’re lit well so she can see your face — and so you look your best. If you’re hoping to avoid double chins and other awkward angles, keep the computer’s camera level with, or slightly above, your eye line. When you’re chatting, don’t stare at yourself on the screen. You’d dress up for an in-person date, so why not put a little effort into a Skype date?
A convicted Australian child sex offender who abused children in Indonesia for seven years in the 1990s has been found working at a school in Thailand.
The ABC can reveal that Peter Dundas Walbran, who served three years in a Lombok jail for the abuse, including the sexual abuse of three boys then aged between 8 and 12, was detained this morning after a police raid in Ubon Ratchathani, 600 kilometres north-east of Bangkok.
The best lighting setup is to have two light sources, one coming from behind your monitor, another coming from the side. You’ll look distracted and noncommittal to the conversation. You don’t need to wear a shirt and tie, but looking like you just rolled out of bed — in a sloppy way, not a sexy one — seems lazy and disrespectful.
Wear color if you want to stand out from your backdrop.
In the 1990s Walbran, who is a dual Australian-New Zealand citizen, worked at the Australian and British international schools in Jakarta and was later accused of abusing children in the Indonesian capital, Bali and Lombok.
