    I'm a bit curious if it's possible to see when was the last time one of your contacts was online on skype...now if I just hold the arrow over one of the (offline) names on my contact list it comes up a little note which says "last seen: 1/12/11" or something like that. Now I can tell it's not the last time we spoke, but does it mean the last time that person was online or the last time they were online while I was online? (although not speaking).

    I'm not getting that pop-up on my Skype... Are you using the beta version?

    I don't believe there's any way to tell when they were last online, since Skype will only update message histories when both parties are online. If you're part of a group of people on Skype, and go offline when everyone else carries on talking, then later come online after a few hours when no-one's online, you'll not see the message history until one person who has a more up-to-date message history signs in. Sometimes it's easy to tell if someone's "appearing offline" or "invisible" if it updates when no-one's appearing online (:. Sorry I went off topic a bit there... I really don't think there would be a way of telling when they were last signed in, sorry. :/
