Open Thread: Did Skype Outage KO Your Work?

[qi:078] I have been getting quite a few emails from folks who are fuming over the ongoing Skype outage. The Skype team is trying its best to fix the problem, but that isn’t helping those who depend on the service. One of our readers Ariel Porath in an email wrote, “With half of my developers in Estonia, we rely- probably a bit too much- on Skype throughout the day/every day for workflow/communications. Never expected five nines- but this outage has caused a prolonged headache.” Tell us how this blackout has impacted you. Will this make you rely less on Skype in the future?
