After numerous attempts to reboot Skype today, I realized something is terribly wrong. I installed, reinstalled new and older versions, checked firewall and Internet connection – all for nothing. I did have similar issues before, but always found a way to start Skype and do some talking. Today is different.
After searching the web I found this article: http://eu.techcrunch.com/2010/12/22/skype-goes-down-and-twitter-goes-insane/ and several more along these lines. Not only Skype is down, but also Twitter – I checked at 3:10 pm EST – it was. Perhaps too many people tried to check Twitter for #skype updates, which caused Twitter crash consequently.
What is in the world going on!
I am sure they’ll figure it out. Is it a really big deal? I don’t think so. We lived without Skype before and there are other services such as Calliflower, Google Talk and old Windows Live Messenger. We all love Skype, everyone knows it and people like my mother in Ukraine, figured how to use it. We wish it goes back to live soon. Until then, we continue loading new frames to Eyeinform – your ultimate online source for eyeglasses.
