Hi,

I was wondering if Scubatoys has ever thought of settng up a skype account to give international customers an easier way of contacting them during working hours. Voice messages can even be left for scubatoys skype number for requests for quotes therefore ensuring orders can be taken during the time frame when scubatoys is cloase and the rest of us are wrking.

With that in mind a Google talk account would also work in the same way.

You know, I would second this request gleefully. Then again, as a librarian working in a very "wired" library, if you get too many bells and whistles going at once it can be a bit overwhelming.

Hey, you're from Brisbane. My home town!

Where are the best local places to dive? I'll be there in Jan.

Hay,

I'm actually from Ireland but have been living in Brisbane for the last year. Great place to work and live!

Some great diving around Morton Island. I hear Flinders Reef is the best diving but I haven't gone yet. I've done some wreck diving at Curtin reef and Tangalooma wreck which is good if you get the right visibility. If you are staying a while check out the big cat reality. They do weekend live aboard all over Morton Island. http://www.bigcatreality.com/

The one we're current getting set for is a short trip down the coast (about an 1hr) to Mooloolaba to dive the HMAS Brisbane which is meant to be one of the best dives around.

Here's some links to get you started.

If you guys and dolls want to do live chats (voice) I can set one of my ventrilo servers up and let you talk long distances for free :)
For those that do not know what Ventrilo is ;
http://www.ventrilo.com/index.php

You'll need to download the client portion (it's free) and have a mic / sound-card.

It allows voice coms anywhere in the world via VoIP. Let me know if this is something you guys would want to play with and I can setup a 100 user voice server.
Just need to know where ya want the server located ie what location/country and I can set it up in a matter of minutes
to see the country locations --
