Skype Service Down For 12 To 24 Hours


Skype is down. Woe is Skype. Currently its millions of users (including me) are unable to log in to the service.

Skype staffer Villu Arak left the following on the company blog:

Some of you may be having problems logging into Skype. Our engineering team has determined that it’s a software issue. We expect this to be resolved within 12 to 24 hours. Meanwhile, you can simply leave your Skype client running and as soon as the issue is resolved, you will be logged in. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Curiously, the post is tagged “News, Events, Milestones”. I’m not so sure they’re going to want to remember this as a milestone but, hey, I’m just a guy with a keyboard and no Skype access.
