Skype is not working fine

I could not log on to Skype. I found the following announcement.

Status announcements
Problems signing in to Skype By Peter Parkes on June 7, 2011.
Update 2:
We are continuing to address today’s problems, and are seeing indications that the situation is improving.
If you were disconnected from Skype earlier, you shouldn’t need to manually sign back in to Skype - it should reconnect automatically when it’s able to do so.

Skype is falling down.

Is it all water under the bridge?

Or, as the Germans would say, “yesterday’s snow”?

If Skype fails, LingQ will also fail.

As the “Post and Submit for Correction” function does not depend on Skype, we can kill time by posting messages on the LingQ forums.

I always think a phrase “kill time” interesting. I think I am a serial killer. This post was written to kill time, of course.
