Skype has added a gifting option to Skype 188.8.131.527 that enables you to send Skype credit to a contact — however, it seems this gifting possibility occurs only on a contact’s birthday. The Mac client also adds the capability to send a one-way SMS message without having to first add and verify your mobile number, fixes a hang that occurred when signing out with a Facebook account, and ensures your Skype credit amount is the same in both the main Skype window and in the account window. Skype also notes that the app may crash for those running a MacBook Pro with a Retina display with a non-Retina external display, and the company promises a fix for the next release. For the time being, the best workaround is to select Skype in your Applications folder, press Command-I to open Get Info, and then check the “Open in low resolution” option.

Data Tables in Microsoft Excel 2008
Data Tables let you see how the results of a formula change as its underlying variables change. After entering data, select the entire table and choose Data > Table. Then tell Excel which row input cell and column input cells you want the table to use. Finally, click OK. Excel will crunch the numbers and present a new Data Table.

In general, we're finding that Skype's call quality has dropped significantly over the past few months, to the point where it's unusual to have a long call not need to be restarted once or twice in the middle.
