Yesterday we have posted a solution how to make your beloved Skype work again, after the recent update. It seems like, the size of the problem is huge! Today we concluded we posted the solution before Skype support found it out. Since posting the solution on our blog, we gained huge traffic on that one single post. We estimate around 50.000 people have experienced the “Skype stopped working” issue after updating it to the last 126.96.36.199 version. [Update: Skype problem on May 26, 2011, has a different cause. Check our new post.]
Imagine a small city where each citizen is angry at you!
Taking into account, that our blog is not on the top of the Google list, I can easily say that several tousands of people couldn’t use Skype last weekend, just because compatibility mode was somehow turned on. Imagine, a small city angry at you…
Do we have any alternatives?
Imagine now, that Skype really stopped to work for a longer period of time. Do you have any other solution then Skype to communicate with your relatives, friends, coworkers?
Share your ideas! how would you replace Skype, if it is gone for good?
