An anonymous reader writes "Just thought this was kinda cool. I got an email from Skype a little bit ago... I don't yet see any kind of link on their site about it but:
"When the unexpected happens, it's important to remember the people who
stuck behind us and whose loyalty humbled us. I want to thank
everyone for their support, patience and being part of the Skype
community. And for those of you who missed out on using Skype last
week — I want to especially thank you as well.
As a goodwill gesture to all you faithful Skype Pro, Skype Unlimited,
SkypeIn or Skype Voicemail customers, we're adding an additional seven
days to your current subscription, free of charge. And even if you
didn't miss out on using Skype last week — you can still have a week
free on Skype, on the house!""
