Has your Skype taken a break like ours? Read how to fix it

We got various reports from around the world that Skype connectivity is not operating normally. We’ve seen a similar outage not too long ago, we hope this time it won’t be as bad as the last time.

Timing couldn’t be worse, I guess, as it’s been just over two weeks since Microsoft acquired Skype for $8.5 billion and this is definitely not a good start for Microsoft’s rule.
It’s still unclear what’s the reason behind the problem – it might be a planned attack against Skype itself or just a problem with their data centers. At the moment of writing, the Skype official website is down as well.
I hope Skype will deal with this quickly and won’t lose its entire world network once again.

Skype has a solution for bringing tech savvy users back online. It requires deleting the shared.xml file, instructions for which are available for Windows 7, XP and Mac OS X (so yes, Apple computers have been bitten by the same bug too). A simpler fix is said to be in the works as well.
