    Did Skype being down today affect anyone?


    I will answer my question first... I talk to friends and family on skype and I do my business on Skype so it was irritating.

    If your Skype account is up, show a screenshot in this thread

    Yep, it well and truly pissed me off! I was in the middle of a convo when it suddenly stopped working.

    Between insane and insecure
    I don't even use (nor care to use) skype, so really it has no effect on me

    Many people have their businesses and business support dependent on Skype. I wonder how there are doing.

    If you do not know what is skype then you should just take ten steps away from your computer and tell it "I will never touch you again and If I do I will shoot myself in my foot." [​IMG]
