Problem fixed thanks:Posts with census years now read as phone number
« on: Wednesday 25 August 10 13:16 BST (UK) »
Hi
I installed the phone program for Sk**e yesterday and now some post headings look sort of strange. It seems that census years are being interpreted as phone numbers ???
Is that normal?

There was a discussion recently regarding this, but I'm unable to locate it just now, - It would appear to be a setting within Skype that has to be adjusted.

Yes - indeed, the above link will work, and here's something about removing the Skype toolbar: http://www.rootschat.com/links/09ld/
