Comment I have the opposite problem (Score 1) 21

I have a fast metabolism and have trouble keeping weight on. I was way too skinny most of my life, never could gain weight. When I was on Paxil I gained 40 pounds and was actually a few pounds too heavy, but in the three or fours years since I've been off of them I've lost 20 pounds while trying to keep it on.

Well, a phone aka "telephone" may be thought of as a Ventrilo connection with only one other person in the channel with you. The connection quality is generally better than with Ventrilo or Teamspeak as it is accomplished through dedicated hardware that has been designed for maximum reliability within a 64kbps bandwidth.

Of course, being a dedicated hardware solution does limit its flexibility somewhat. For example, the hardware handles analog - digital and digital - analog conversions automatically which limits you to your normal speaking rate for data transfer. There is no limit on how long you can continue o yap.
