Skype downtime today

2011年01月21, 包月GO 450 本以為月滿到期, 準備再加 NT$450 用一個月, 可是怎樣都不成功, 後來才知道, SKYPE 為了這次斷線, 延長7天作為補償.

2010年12月22晚上起, 所有skype 電話都斷了. 除了 n900 可登入, 但是沒用, 打不了 IDD,

2010年12月23 17:55……依然. 除了 n900 可登入, 但是沒用, 打不了 IDD.

2010年12月23 18:12……n900 可登入, 可打 IDD.


所以 DIY 無線電通訊設備還是有存在價值, 老外說的

Skype downtime today

Skype structureEarlier today, we noticed that the number of people online on Skype was falling, which wasn’t typical or expected, so we began to investigate.

Skype isn’t a network like a conventional phone or IM network – instead, it relies on millions of individual connections between computers and phones to keep things up and running. Some of these computers are what we call ‘supernodes’ – they act a bit like phone directories for Skype. If you want to talk to someone, and your Skype app can’t find them immediately (for example, because they’re connecting from a different location or from a different device) your computer or phone will first try to find a supernode to figure out how to reach them.

Under normal circumstances, there are a large number of supernodes available. Unfortunately, today, many of them were taken offline by a problem affecting some versions of Skype. As Skype relies on being able to maintain contact with supernodes, it may appear offline for some of you.

What are we doing to help? Our engineers are creating new ‘mega-supernodes’ as fast as they can, which should gradually return things to normal. This may take a few hours, and we sincerely apologise for the disruption to your conversations. Some features, like group video calling, may take longer to return to normal.

Stay tuned to @skype on Twitter for the latest updates on the situation – and many thanks for your continued patience in the meantime.
