Skype call recording:
One option that claims to do both is called TotalRecorder (http://www.highcriteria.com/). It requires buying two separate things, for a total of about $90, though I suspect there may be a free trial option available.
Another option, apparently cheaper, is Pamela. It’s a one-item purchase, and has a 30-day free trial available. http://www.pamela.biz/download/.
You can also find a page (a bit dated, from 2006, but the concepts largely appear to be valid) at http://labnol.blogspot.com/2006/06/how-to-record-skype-conversations.html.
