Software: Skype quirks and gotchas

Some Skype quirks and gotchas.
  • There is no way to view the history of a group chat in Skype (my version 1.1.0.79). The chat history files are stored in C:\Documents and Settings\username\Application Data\Skype\username but they are encoded in some proprietary format.
  • If you call someone and then close the call window before they answer, the call attempt continues. If the recepient answers the call, the caller does not see a call window but the line is established, so the receipient can eavesdrop.
