Skype payphone…

Img 316SkypeUnigamer writes “My dream has come true. Ever since last summer when I saw the Skype Video Payphone, I wanted to have a payphone hooked up to VOIP. Not long after I saw that article on Makezine, I put a “wanted” ad on Craigslist Sacramento for a Payphone. I said I wanted it for a project, didn’t have a lot of money I can spend on it, and it didn’t have to be working. I left it alone, never thinking I’d get a response from anyone.” Link. Hopefully, I’ll have time to accept real money in the MAKE payphone soon and have that converted to Skype credits…

    Hey, first place I found off of google search… need help in making the Maxxtor external drive virtual if it can be done? Where can I go to find this info?? Im not a dumby but I am not versed in this very well. Just a nudge in the right direction would be much appreciated.
