SKYPE IS DOWN!!! I tried to call my brother this evening, and skype wouldn't connect. I assumed it was our internet connection . . . but I could access the web no problem. I tried agin a little bit later, but no luck. Apparently skype users around the world are facing the same problem. I just hope they get it up and running in the next day or two . . . it's one thing to be far away for Christmas, it's something else altogether to have a skype outage pour Noël!
