Hosting a 24/7 Call without the Call Ending?

Hi everyone, I run a server at my house and had the idea to run a 24/7 Skype call because my friends and I use it constantly throughout the day.  I set up an account and added everyone to a call.  The idea is that if they leave, they can join back at their convenience, and you never miss the links posted.  

 

The issue: Once the host is the only person in the call, it ends (of course).  Is there anyway to just leave it running even when 1 person is in the call?  Thanks.

you can't keep a call open with only one participant, but it IS possible to run more than one instance of Skype on a Windows machine using the /secondary switch, and this could be your second participant in the call

granted, that is a bit of a kludge, but it should work
