Skype issues: Just acquired a nice dynamic mic and Tascam us-144 audio interface. I know the Tascam is old, but it seems to work fine. Had to jump through some hoops like downloading ASIO4all to tweak my sound card, and now the rig works fine with Soundbooth or Audition on Win10 and Win7 respectively...but on both machines I can still not get Skype to pick up the audio, even thought the dropdown menu gives me the Tascam as a choice for phones and mic. I can hear the Skype sounds (test call, etc.) but Skype does not pick up any audio whatsoever, despite both PCs hearing it just fine. Has this happened to anybody else, and if so what's the solution. I've been trying to solve this for a couple of days now.

Last Days of Summer
It's the middle of August here in the Pacific Northwest, the East side of Puget Sound, to be exact. This afternoon around 5:30 I stepped outside to give the chickens some scraps, and instead of a blast of heat at the end of a blindingly sunny Summer day, I ...

"The Spook Lights Affair: Carpenter & Quincannon #2", by Marcia Muller and Bill Pronzini
The Spook Lights Affair by Marcia Muller My rating: 5 of 5 stars It takes a solid grasp of a historical setting to impress me, and these authors do exactly that and more. Add to that a perplexing suicide/murder/or?, a hunt for missing Wells Fargo money, and...

"Rogue's Honor", by Brenda Hiatt
Rogue's Honor by Brenda Hiatt My rating: 5 of 5 stars I was surprised by how much I enjoyed this charming, and occasionally steamy, Regency romance as I'm a very tough audience when it comes to the romance genre and historicals in general. Nicely realized s...

The Banishment by Marion Chesney My rating: 5 of 5 stars Hunting around for an audio book on my library's web site, I stumbled upon this little gem. A big fan of Beaton's Hamish MacBeth series, I thought I'd give it a go. What a treasure! Beaton may have ou...
