TeamSpeak is proprietary voice-over-Internet Protocol (VoIP) software that allows computer users to speak on a chat channel with fellow computer users, much like a telephone conference call. The target audience for TeamSpeak is gamers, who can use the software to communicate with other players on the same team of a multiplayer game. Communicating by voice gives a competitive advantage by allowing players to keep their hands on the controls.

My Name is Mike, I'm 35 years old, and a computer technician from France.

I hope you will have a good time here and will excuse me for my bad English, it's still a work in progress, but i really wanted to give it a shot so I could share with as many people as possible.
