Skype powers your dog and cooking
Estonian people are very creative. We invented Skype. It apparently doesn’t stop there. Now we have other Estonian people inventing all sorts of weird uses for it, and not only inventing it but documenting it as well.
[Here's one about dog monitoring.](http://zooda.tr.ee/blog/112/skype-rokib) (We’ve heard other people use it in a similar way for babies as well.)
> Skype is great. We had to go to some people we know to say hi to their newborn, but as our little puppy had never been at home on its own yet, we were concerned about how it takes being alone.
Skype came to rescue. We called our hosts from home before leaving and left the line open. Later, we checked if the puppy is quiet or still making noise. The system worked great. We’ll have a separate Skype Name for the puppy.

Or how about some [Skype-powered cooking](http://rene.srcom.info/?p=35).
> I must say today was the first time where I found some real use for Skype. It was aobut 11 pm and hunger kicked in. I can’t cook myself so I took the computer to the kitchen, connected a mic, opened Skype and called my resident cooking expert.
As my knowledge of cooking is nonexistent, this turned out as a very interesting conversation.
Him: Take a pan.
Me: Eee.. wait I’m asking where it is
Him: Now break an egg onto it.
Me: Seriously? A real egg? Uncooked?
Him: Yes. A real, uncooked egg. Onto the pan.
Me: OK, I’m doing it…
Him: Did you do it?
Me: Damn… I need to find something to clean this up with.
Well eventually I still got my food done and consumed. It was pretty good and I must say I was quite proud of myself.
