Skype has acknowledged the issues and said that their engineering team has determined that it's a software issue. They expect this to be resolved within 12 to 24 hours. Meanwhile, you can simply leave your Skype client running and as soon as the issue is resolved, you will be logged in. Its amazing how my productivity has gone south with Skype not available.
