Build a Skype phone

Christoffer Jarnaker writes "Have an old wireless phone collecting dust in the cupboard? Have some spare time? Do you use Skype, MSN or similar to Voice chat?
Then have a look at this page, http://www.jarnaker.com/siemensskype, where I describe how to convert the wireless phone to give an line in and out to connect to your computer. The sound quality is perfect and I can walk about 300m from my house and still talk for free over Skype.

Cost $0.
Material used: one wireless phone, and one 3.5mm to 3.5mm plug (cut in half).
Tools used: screwdriver, knife, soldering iron."
