Hi Everyone,

I just did a test, and it seems I can link Skype conference with my 
conference bridge using SkypeOut. So people can participate via. which 
ever is most convenient for them. If it turns out there's only people 
via. Skype we can hang up on the telecom bridge.

I don't mind setting up the bridges. I will need to know the Skype ID's 
of those planning to attend to be add them. Please send me your id 
off-list if you would.
