Thanks Ron. I've bookmarked Linphone but does it require a static IP 
address for direct connection or can we communicate via Gizmo's 

I guess you've tried Gizmo then! My daughter and I installed it on OS X 
and Ubuntu respectively and both tried to call each other in turn. I 
always get diverted to voice mail which she hasn't set up yet. She is 
told I don't exist.

Is 'Bonjour' the (intra-network only) mojo that Aq was looking for last 
night? I've just read a thread about it stopping a network though, so 
take care. Michael Robertson joined in the conversation as 'mykill' to 
reassure people and stick the knife into Skype. I like that guy!

We're running Skype for now but I'll be keeping an ear open for Gizmo 
stabilising on Linux.
