You know the old joke about taking Underwater Basket Weaving in College. Well, if you weren't able to fit that into your cirriculum, then it isn't too late.

I just loaded up the new Skype beta which now has skypecast support. I check on the "Live" tab to see what Skypecasts are currently running and what do you think I found?

A 5-hour Basket Weaving Course.

Learn to basket weave with this 5 hour tutorial.

So I figure, why not. It's not like I don't have 5 hours to waste and basket weaving could come in valueable some day. So I signed up to see what I could learn. Here's a brief excerpt for those of you who weren't able to connect in:

"He's going to find me..."
"He's right behind you."
"It's work, it's just messing with my head..."
"6:19..."
"What were you saying about the movie now?"
"Stop coming in here please!"
"I'm muting you, don't come back"
"I don't want to go..."
"Oh... Right..."
"He's on the mountain"
"There are three in there..."

I was trying to follow along as best I could with my collection of reeds and pot of water, but I just couldn't get it to come out right. Maybe since I didn't take this in school, I missed some critical step along the way... If anyone could explain what I'm missing, I'd really appreciate it!

Lucky for me, I noticed that Jeff was signed in before me. I wonder which one of those quotes above were from him? I'll have to have him explain this whole thing to me someday when I'm thoroughly intoxicated.

Oh well, another hobby down the tubes...
