Has your confidence in Skype been shaken?

A great deal of the Skype network has been down for more than a day now and it's still not fixed.

A great deal of the Skype network has been down for more than a day now and it's still not fixed. 

The official word from Skype is that "a deficiency in an algorithm within Skype networking software that controls the interaction between the user's own Skype client and the rest of the Skype network."  Either way, people have not been able to use Skype to communicate.

I don't use Skype (people have plenty of ways to get in touch with me and the last thing I want it to give them yet another way to pester me) but I know a lot of people who rely on it who are tearing out their hair and anxiously waiting for the network to come back.  Hopefully things will be back to normal tomorrow.
