Photo-A-Day #1777

Now that we’ve gone to a cash only system for our lives I have cash in my pockets. Thank you Dave Ramsey. It is a weird thing for me because for years I hardly ever had cash on me, I operated only on cards. So, today I was in Borders and I went to pay for a snack and saw this dollar bill in my wallet. It really jumped out at me because of the colors and then I looked closer and saw that there was this website built up around following this dollar on its journey.

I’ve been trying to figure out a good way to record Skype calls so that I could record some good stuff for you to hear. I started searching and playing with a few things today. I tried out a program called G-Recorder (Aff Link) and it is pretty slick. The program integrates with GMail seamlessly.

When you have a phone/audio call the call gets recorded and gets posted to your GMail account with the tag “Skype Call” as soon as the conversation is over. You can then forward that to someone else, download it as an MP3 or add additional labels. It is a great tool to keep track of your conversations as well as Skype chats. Skype text chats also get automatically posted to your GMail account as well. So far I like it and I’m only in the trial phase right now.

If you record Skype calls, what program to you use and why?

  1. Just an FYI…MA law requires that you disclose that a call is being recorded.

    Sincerely,

    As far as I know G-Recorder notifies both parties about recording.
    The option is optional though, so user should be responsible :)

      Tim,
      that is very cool. I signed up for an account while I don’t have a stamp it will be fun to see what happens to this dollar.

    We used to use Pamela to record our RedHatBlueHat podcasts, but it looks like G-Recorder works better for about half the price! Nice find, Drew!

      Tim,
      Thanks. I think that maybe we should do a call sometime. It might be cool for us to talk about our experience speaking at Affiliate Summit or something like that. We have good ideas that we can bounce off each other.

    I had the privilege of testing G-Recorder with Drew and I was really impressed with the quality of the recording. Both Drew and I were on our computer mic’s and the recording is still very clear.

    While we were on the call Eva politely interupted to say she had to tinkel, which I couldn’t hear all that well because I was jsut on the computer speakers, but when I played back the message it was very clear and very cute.

    Drew, I look forward to our conversation next week and I was given a free key for SkypeCap which captures both video and audio. Perhaps we can test it out one evening or over the weekend.

  6. I use Audio Hijack Pro which runs on OS X and can record Skype calls. My main use is for working on the Social Photo Podcast.

    My son-in-law plays where’s george too! He has his own stamp and has marked several large and small bills.

      Deborah,

      I can’t believe I’ve never heard of this. Each time I find something new someone is already a big fan, it is really funny.

    I log most of my dollars into Where’s George. I have yet to have one of my dollars return to me.
