I picked up a CyberAcoustics AC-840 usb headset and it seems to work fine with Skype. I called my parents and Anto called hers, and they can hear us fine, so now it's time to cancel our long distance plan for now.
I have a quick joke for you, dear reader. I read it on some joke site for cancer victims, and it states that it is a bit distasteful, but I think it's funny.
A doctor calls his patient and says, "I have some bad news for you. You have terminal cancer." The patient replies, "Oh. That's terrible." The doctor says, "Well, you also have alzheimer's." The patient replies, "Well, at least I won't die of cancer."
