The Skype Outage

Monday, 20 August 2007 at 5:00 am Pacific USA Time.

For those of you NOT on a cruise ship last week, you know Skype was not working for a day or two (depending upon where you were located and which Skype services you use).

You don’t know what you’ve got ’til it’s gone. But I found that it didn’t affect me much. I had two calls scheduled that were going to go through Skype. One became a real phone call and the other was rescheduled for this morning, still through Skype. Working with staff and clients that normally happens over Skype switched to Yahoo Instant Messenger and AIM (through Trillian for me).

I like Skype, and I’d miss it if it went away. I was able to function without it. How do your customers feel about you?
