Skype on debian wheezy 64bit

A quickie... If you want skype, you will notice the skype guys are slackers and dont have a Debian Wheezy release.

Download the one for Ubuntu and do the following....

sudo dpkg -i  skype*.deb

this will fail, but it will set up the following to work...

sudo apt-get -f install

it will force install it and everything it needs,  all seems to work well.  I do hate that it seems that you have to force install most things on debian,  that feels very broken to me..
