Issues with Skype status and calling

Quote:
We have detected an issue that is affecting Skype in a number of ways.

If you're signed in to Skype, you will not be able to change your status and your contacts will all show as offline even if they are online. As a result, you wonít be able to start Skype calls to them..

A small number of messages to group chats are not being delivered, but in most cases you can still instant message your contacts..

If you arenít signed in to Skype, you may be experiencing difficulty when attempting to sign in. Any changes to your Skype account such as your Credit balance or your profile details might take a little while to be displayed..

You may also have difficulty loading web pages on the Skype Community. For that reason, please check back here for future updates..

We're doing everything we can to fix this issue and hope to have another update for you soon. Thank you for your patience as we work to get this incident resolved.

WHOA! "Say it ain't so, Joe!" You mean some of you are Skype/MS employees or affiliates? Have I stumbled into 'the Darknet'? Honestly, I didn't see a thing, officer. I was just sitting in the back seat, singing.

No one here is employed by MS or Skype, as far as I am aware.

OK. I see what you mean now. I thought that Brink was the originator of the actual text ... didn't look at the "Source" link. Then when I did, I thought that Brinks was the author of the announcement on the Skype site. Kind of misleading ... but my brain seems to be working, now. - RVAH-12

He was just reporting an article from Skype about the problem, and quoting from the article. Not a problem, no big deal.
