hack to stop skype from acessing my bandwidth???
From the skype license agreement:

"3.3 Utilization of Your Computer:Skype Software may utilize the processor and bandwidth of the computer (or other applicable device) You are utilizing, for the limited purpose of facilitating the communication between You and third parties. Skype will use its commercially reasonable efforts to protect the privacy and integrity of the computer resources (or other applicable device) You are utilizing and of Your communication, however Skype cannot give any warranties in this respect."

Anyone know of a cool linux hack to make sure that skype does not do this? i haven't installed it yet, I'm looking into open source alternatives, but i'm not sure if they'll suit my needs. I just don't want to give skype access to my computer.

And we're not going to help you breach a contract ... no,
we won't help research the possibilities of breaking it
before you agree, either.
