5 Great Ways to Record Skype Calls
http://thenextweb.com/apps/2011/02/09/5-great-ways-to-record-skype-calls/

"I have been looking to find a way to record my Skype VoIP calls. I do most of my interviews using Skype because my AT&T reception is very bad, I have to sit in my balcony in the northwest corner. I often lean over the balcony to get better reception. After almost dropping my phone and also myself off the balcony I now just make calls by Skype. The calls are recorded using the iPhone recording app carefully positioned closely to my laptop speakers. I still have no idea why Skype doesn’t implement this functionality.

Until that happens it’s time for me to branch out and find a better way to record my VoIP calls. In my search I came up with 5 great apps to record VoIP calls."

There are a number of different programs that will let you do this: AthTek Skype Recorder, MX SkypeRecord, IMCapture, Skype Call Recorder, etc.  If you are a Linux user, there is a nice video that runs through setup and use of Skype Call Recorder. I don't know that it is a better choice than some of the others, but I thought you might find it interesting.
