Skype connection woes

by Volker Weber

Skype seems to be having connectivity issues. It started yesterday and I am currently unable to connect. Are you having the same issues?

Did you see this?

John Keys, 2007-08-16

Yep, same here. Co-workers in Berlin are having the same problem, as well as Cologne. Nobody seems to be able to connect...

Dennis Kirschner, 2007-08-16

John, I have not seen it. Seems to be the explanation.

Volker Weber, 2007-08-16

Yes i have the same problem

Andrea Altefrone, 2007-08-16

Same thing in Kansas City.

Viktor Krantz, 2007-08-16

Same problem here in the States.

Same here in the UK... Dead as a dodo...

Can't imagine it is in any way related, but LinkedIn seems very slow this afternoon as well. The basic page loads, but I can't get a list of connections to appear. Anyone else having the same problem?

Just came online.

There I was thinking I was the only person logged in to skype ;)

Yup.. Its dead allright.

Deadness. I'm glad to know it wasn't me.

Skype Heartbeat, 'We expect this to be resolved within 12 to 24 hours".

Yeap...no podcast recordings today :(

Bruce Elgort, 2007-08-16

Same here as well. And I just thought people were just being quiet today.

Detlev Buschkamp, 2007-08-16

Yes, same here. I thought it was just me.

Had two successful connects today - but no other users online besides one currently in Brazil. Chatting worked two times, around 5 Minutes each - and then broke in the middle of the chat. However, connection problems did not start yesterday - we experienced slighter problems within the wohle last month or so.

It’s technology SNAFU day today. I grabbed the latest PPC security update from Apple this morning, and now the iMac G4 is dead in the water (reformatting the hard drive as I type).

No Skype, Sametime down at work… Tsk!

:o)

Ben Poole, 2007-08-16

It's been up and down all day for me.

According to PC World, it may be out until tomorrow.

Same problem here several ours later.

Perhaps time to move back to Jabber and non-proprietary servers?

Pieter Lansbergen, 2007-08-16

dead as a dead fish...

Heiko Müller, 2007-08-16

Also in Italy we are experiencing skype connection problem.

danilo maurizio, 2007-08-16

Skype was briefly back for me, about an hour ago. But funnily enough, no-one was on-line ;o)

Re “time to move”: a tad extreme I’d say. Skype’s down: It’s not the end of the world!

Ben Poole, 2007-08-16

Its back up now .. I am online
