Make Your Own Skype Phone

Want to save a few bucks and convert an old wireless phone into a Skype phone? Check out Jarnaker.com:

By having the phone off hook I carefully inserted my little screwdriver here and there until a heard a click in the handset. And when I found that click I injected a signal from my MP3 player – and it worked! Then reverse, by blowing in the handsets microphone I used the regular headphone for my MP3 player to see where I could ‘hear’ the phone. By grounding on wire and using the other as a probe I quickly found the spot next to the first spot.

Not for the faint of screwdriver.
