No more than 20 cups of coffee in the morning........???????????? I don't even open my eyes until #25.....  ;)

Didn't have much of a chance to fool with the3 mic on the HP Mini this weekend - got tired of our (finished) basement flooding during heavy rains (admittedly rare in the high desert) and placed automatic sump pumps to 'bail us out'.....  8)

Hopefully, I'll get things working this week.

Successfully installed skype thanks to this tutorial:

with a launcher on the desktop and a nifty little skype icon.

Hot damn.  ;D You'd almost think I knew what I was doin'...

Yes, it's works. But in archive is README file with steps for installaion. You simply need extract files from archihe and put them according with README. After it copy Skype.desktop file to your desktop folder (ex: /home/<userame>/Desktop. After it you can start skype simply clicking on icon.
Also this way provides your another possibilities with running skype by other users of PC and find program.

Thanks, furydragon. I've remade the tut and incorporated your suggestion.
Appreciate the input, intended or otherwise. ;)
