Skypecasts have not worked for three weeks

I do apologize for the next canceled skypecast but it is due to systematic technical difficulties which skypecasts have experienced for the last three weeks.
So if it happens we set up a conference room for 10 guys (with host) and if you want to be added follow this rules:

go to our public always open chat room where your skype id will be visible and easy to findtype in that you want to join uspick up the phone when Epoti calls you.In case if you still have a problem with understanding how to join us please send an email at:

Please do not complain

For all these angry people: I am really sorry that we were not be able to meet on skypecast yesterday but it was not my fault. We had a small conference room instead with these we had met before or met in our public chat room. If you wish to know what is going on and meet other guys willing to improve their English go to our always open chat room. And it depends on you if this chat room is alive or not, there are guys from many time zones so just start talking and find out who is there too.

Next skypecast I will set up on Thursday, maybe on Fridays traffic is too heavy.

Watch, listen to and learn how to talk about the weather.

Vertigo by U2

Turn it up loud, captain!

Lights go down
It's dark
The jungle is your head
Can't rule your heart
I'm feeling so much stronger
Than I thought
Your eyes are wide
And though your soul
it can't be bought
your mind can wander

Hello, Hello
Hola! [Spanish for Hello]
I'm at a place called vertigo (¿Dónde está?) [Where is it?]
It's everything I wish I didn't know
Except you give me something I can feel

The night is full of holes
Those bullets rip the sky
Of ink with gold
They twinkle as the boys play rock and roll
They know that they can't dance
At least they know

I can sell the beat
I'm askin' for the cheque
Girl with crimson nails
Has Jesus 'round the neck
Swinging to the music
Swinging to the music

Hello, Hello
I'm at a place called Vertigo (¿Dónde está?) [Where is it?]
It's everything I wish I didn't know
But you give me something I can feel

Check mated
Oh yeah
Hours of fun...

All of this, all of this can be yours
All of this, all of this can be your…

2057 The City

"Cars without drivers? Humanoid robots in every household? Cyber-hacking? Intelligent camera surveillance systems? Learn about today's scientific advances that will shape our networked cities of tomorrow".
This movie is from Discovery 2057 series and there are two additional episodes about our bodies and the world.

To be honest I don't like such a prison-size world. But there is no harm in watching, you don't have to be very advanced in English to understand it. :)
Right now, after watching it I have understood Amish point of view in terms of modern technology.

How to download movies from youtube

I have found this video by accident. It is unfortunately in fast, advanced English but maybe looking at this images helps to understand how to download and convert movies. Surely we have to start with Firefox and then with specific extension tool for it. Best wishes guys!
