I’ve just installed Skype again. Not sure why. This was after going through a ton of old photos various online people have sent me over the years. My god I was knew some sexy people!! Looking at some now I remain staggered they even gave me the time of day. A tiny handful of these I am actually still in touch with. But when I got back into my old Skype account, I could not see anyone on my Contacts list. I’m not sure if that was my one and only Skype account. I also have a feeling that before I uninstalled Skype the last time round (years ago now) I deleted and removed all my Contacts, having planned never to come back, and I didn’t want the chance to remain for them to have any status of me “online” appearing when I didn’t even have the thing installed.
Of course the main thing with Skype, alongside the far superior MSN Messenger, was the webcam element. Well, I can’t see that ever happening again. The last webcam I have, which I didn’t realise I even still had in my flat, was some Microsoft Livecam HD thing. I’m highly doubtful they’d bother making Windows 10 drivers for that – the thing is so old now – or at least possibly the last time I ever used it was before 2015 – thus before Windows 10 existed (good times).
Times move on, and so, it makes me sad to think to myself, have all these amazing people I’ve known.
