+ - The cause of Skype outage

Van Cutter Romney writes: "A post on Skype's website has detailed the cause of last Thursday's outage. It seems that a Windows Update trigged a large number of computers to reboot within a short timeframe resulting in a flood of login requests. This combined with a lack to P2P network resources caused the disruption. The outage brings to question the reliability of VoIP and its ability to replace POTS."
