We've just released a batch of free new Emoticons for you to use within Skype.
We used to make up ad-hoc ascii emoties to make Skype chats more visually expressive, but most of them were NSFW in-jokes about Ebony's love of 80s music that won't make much sense to anyone else.
We then went a step further and made some new animated emoties and hacked them into Skype to use on 'Junkarama' (a long running link-dump thread used by ourselves and some other friends/companies).
We've now packaged up this emotie set so you can you them too. It only works for Mac, but installing them is as easy as downloading a file to your desktop, dropping a line of code into terminal and restarting Skype.
You can now wow your friends and co-workers with Trogdor, Cthulhu, Goatse and more. We have even added in a little Pomodoro Technique icon to let others know when not to interrupt.
We find it to work without problems, and it hasn't killed our computers (yet), but that isn't to say that it might not kill yours. If you experience any problems, we have no idea why. Try it at your own risk.
