Yes, that unknown person can join Mike's Skype Thing. That person can also choose not to speak if she doesn't want to, and there's a text chat if she wants to communicate without speaking.

If anyone's interested in watching Blake's 7, the show that Sarah and I were talking about last night, the entirety of it is on YouTube. Be warned, though: you'll have to put up with terrible sets, costumes, and special effects. I posted a video of Avon's greatest insults (which didn't embed for some reason) in the YouTube thread, but I guess I'll repost it here.

Those du rags are lame. Not buying from that site next time I want to put on a minstrel show.

Thoughts on the chat:

- Mike should make sure he mentions the Skype handle of the person who's hosting the chat when he tweets about it.

- Mike vs. Sarah and the torture porn discussion were highlights. I especially liked Mike's story about a person coming up to him at an FOT meet-up and telling him about a disturbing murder. "I just attract those types of people for some reason."

- I wish this thing were on something more stable than Skype.

Right. Du rags = minstrel show. Makes sense. What's the air like up there on your high horse?

"Unlicensed recording." Unfortunate, but I do understand that the Wally Wackiman™ brand needs to be protected at all costs.

Thoughts:

1) Mike should put out a tweet before the Skype Thing telling people to add fredericksmindthing as a contact, soFrederickse can invite people in the chat. If Fredericks's getting inundated with contact requests while hosting the chat makes things cumbersome, I can invite people into the chat if they can't get in. Just send a contact request to "Kormodd." What a pain in the ass, but I guess that's Skype.

2) Turning on "dynamic view" makes it much easier to see who's talking in the voice chat.

3) Tom's talking in the text chat, with Fredericks and Mike responding to his comments in the voice chat, was a lot of fun.
