Skype is experiencing a major outage

Skype is experiencing a major outage. My fellow TMC co-workers noticed it late Wednesday when they couldn’t IM fellow co-workers. TMC’s Dave Rodrqiguez told me that he went home for the day, signed into Skype from home and was bombarded with a ton of Skype IM messages that didn’t go through earlier. I checked Skype’s home page but no mention there. I headed over the the Skype heartbeat page and found that that there are indeed experiencing an outage that is still happening today (Thursday). Skype claims the outage is due to a software issue. Many TMCers are upset they can’t IM their fellow coworkers and their outside clients. Amazing how dependent we’re become on Skype for our business.

Some users are able to connect to the Skype network but then are quickly disconnected just minutes later. According to Skype, “We expect this to be resolved within 12 to 24 hours.” This has to be the longest Skype outage ever.
