Skype login problem

Many Chinese Skypers reported login problem with Skype this afternoon from Twitter sphere. Though not all people met the problem, we are sure that there are some problems with Skype logon services. "Flypig" told that "(I found) only 870,000 online users when I tried with proxy". Carol, my friend in Taiwan, also can't login Skype so I think it's not the problem of China censorship(though its always possible, hehe). After searching blogosphere, it seems that the VoIP service is under global turbulence. Hopefully, it can be found an recovered soon.

update:

  1. From Skype Heartbeat site, we found such message:

    Some of you may be having problems logging in to Skype. Our engineering team has determined that it’s a software issue and hopes to have this resolved quickly. Meanwhile, you can simply leave your Skype client running and as soon as the issue is resolved, you will be logged in. We apologize for the inconvenience.

  2. From "The Resigister":

    Skype's peer-to-peer technology appears to be to blame for a large-scale network outage, with users around the world experiencing connection problems.

    The scale of the SNAFU isn't known, but users are reporting problems connecting to the Skype network, or being disconnected within moments of connecting.

Skype new version drives me crazy

After installing Skype new version(v3.1) two days ago, I met a series of deadlock of the program. Anytime(not all the time, of course) when a new chatting messge comes in, the skype program will halt and can't be interacted any more. I found the process of "Skype.exe" in "Windows Tasks Manager" eats over 90% of CPU and 90M memory. So I have to kill the process and restart it, but it will repeat no more than 1 hour. Really mad with the problem, I wish I can roll back to previous versions. (I will copy screenshots the next time I met same deadlock...)

I should send my sympathy to Fons, he got mad with Skype-based RSS alert service, Anothr.com. Sorry, Fons. :)

update: Foxmachia suggested me to install the most recent build of Skype. It did work after the upgrading.
