Hey gang, moaning here on a n8xx mailing list won't get Skype on the 
n8xx.  Please take your moaning to Skype... 

In the meantime -- use Gismo Project.  As far as getting some leverage 
for Skype on the n8xx goes, when you contact Skype, tell them until they 
get Skype (and Skype video) on the n8xx, you'll be promoting moving 
yourself and all of your Skype friends to Gismo Project.
