If you are one of Skype’s many users who use the service to make a living or to talk to your remote users, then you may be straight out of luck. The service this morning is down and the outage is affecting millions of users. So far there is no word from Skype or no comment on their blog as such. On Twitter, Skype posted: “Some of you may have problems signing in to Skype – we’re investigating, and we’re sorry for the disruption to your conversations.”
Sorry, not good enough! Skype is one of the key applications of the modern web.
Update (2:10 p.m.): A post on the official Skype blog blames the outage on "a problem affecting some versions of Skype" that's disrupting Skype's so-called "supernodes," which help direct Skype traffic. A fix is coming, Skype blogger Peter Parkes writes, but it could take a "few hours" before service returns to normal.
