    Is there a web page or other method of testing a camera/mike to see if it works? Used to be one as part of Skype, can't find it there now.

  2. Skype?

    As this is a now quite established messenger system of sorts perhaps a Skype feature for people skype names so perhaps some real time problem solving/discussions could be mounted?
    Just a wee suggestion.
    What does everyone else think?
