An initial foray has been made into tracking and reading Skype.

This is only an initial look at one aspect of Skype.  Key generation, port 
assignments and re-assignment, connection to the server, and session initialization 
have all yet to be studied.

Sometimes, when we lose ourselves in fear and despair, in routine
and constancy, in hopelessness and tragedy, we can thank God for
Bavarian sugar cookies.  And, fortunately, when there aren't any
cookies, we can still find reassurance in a familiar hand on our
skin, or a kind and loving gesture, or subtle encouragement, or a
loving embrace, or an offer of comfort, not to mention hospital
gurneys and nose plugs, an uneaten Danish, soft-spoken secrets,
and Fender Stratocasters, and maybe the occasional piece of
fiction. And we must remember that all these things, the nuances,
the anomalies, the subtleties, which we assume only accessorize
our days, are effective for a much larger and nobler cause.  They
are here to save our lives.  I know the idea seems strange, but I
also know that it just so happens to be true.
