Hi Sean

Thanks so much, this is a fascinating subject because I really need something reliable for recording two-way interviews, and don't always like the drop-out you get with Skype.

Drop me a line off list and let me know what I need to do.

Thanks Sean.

Kind Regards,

Jackie Brown

Hi Sean.

That's excellent news! I'm going to try setting my pi up this evening and seeing how it'll cope. I was thinking of more uses for it... Jackie, a raspberry pi is a mini computer that only costs around £30 to buy. If this works and if we get decent results, I'd be more than happy to supply  you with one. let me know if you want to take part in my tests. 
It'll be a good test as our connection isn't the best, we're still on standard broadband but i'd be very interested to see how it performs.

cheers,

Mo.

If not, you can install the server on your machine, forward the port through your router then ask people to connect to you. If you would like a hand or demo, please let me know and I'll be more than happy to test it out with you.
