  • ProfRussellCIE Michael C. Russell 🚲 (@ProfRussellCIE) reported

    @PatrickJMaley I have it on my syllabuses, but most students don’t have/use Skype so it becomes an issue. Used zoom and FaceTime last year. Anxious about Zoom now though with recent security issues. I offer regular times for phone calls too.

    @SkypeSupport Been having the same problem in the last week. It was working fine and now suddenly out of the blue this message. I have version 8.48.0.51 installed on a Win10 Laptop. Skype works well on mobile on the same home wifi connection, just not on a laptop. Frustrating, need help !

  • _NiiK0_ niko (@_NiiK0_) reported

    @alluCSGO “Veeti skypeen” is a Finnish tactic in which a guy called Veeti is being asked to join a skype conversation. The problem is no one knows where Veeti is. Also no one actually knows who Veeti is and what conversation he is supposed to join, but it’s still going to be ez4ence.

    @shanselman @DamianEdwards @danroth27 @Skype but mostly I want a name of someone I can write too to express my frustrations who is actually responsible for the product. and might just want to fix them. Sorry Scott this is really nothing to do with you just can't find a name of someone who cares bout Skype.

    @tannyjay123 @telegram @0Rickyy0 Just saying if Telegram decided "**** this" one day, that business would be screwed. They're under no obligation to their users for a free service. Slack/Hangouts Chat/Skype for Business all provide some level of assurances that there will be a certain level of uptime, etc.

    Hey, so my research diss got approved the other day. Looking at VR technology acceptance in eSports through the UTAUT2 model. Need a few people to interview, just over ts/Skype to build my data. It'd be anonymous Just message me if you're interested, it'd really help me out.

  • sburall Simon Burall (@sburall) reported

    There is a special circle in hell reserved for Skype and Skype for business. I’m increasingly being invited to Skype meetings that I can’t find in the former and my login for the latter doesn’t work but I can’t generate a new password. More Microsoft f***whittery

    Cellular memory is the key to finding the cause of health problems. I am able to tap into that memory over the phone via my toll-free number or via Skype.

  • kat_isha Katrina Marshall (@kat_isha) reported

    @DTInfoGov @steviephil @FHChat @HelloMyPA All sounds doable... problems arise when the line between research and #SocialMedia gets blurred. Same for apps that are duplicated on the laptop like WhatsApp, Slack, Skype etc... Work in progress I suppose. #FreelanceHeroes

    @RMH40 My main problem with Teams (which my office will be transitioning to from Skype), is that it has inferior emoji range than Skype, which makes no sense . I mean, it sounds petty, but I really enjoy the stingyay.

    We say doctor-patient ratio is low but that data was collected before the age of digital. Now we can use technology to cut down direct contact with patients, like talking to patients through Skype — Kwame Sarpong Asiedu, health expert #GHToday with @Serwaa_Amihere

  • Beckett_IT Leeds Beckett IT Services (@Beckett_IT) reported

    Incident update: Telephone system. Our Skype telephony system call functionally is now available. We are still experiencing some issues with the system and have been made aware that other services may be affected. We will update further once we know more.

  • AlpacaBlitz OatmealRasin (@AlpacaBlitz) reported

    @jowrotethis to avoid it outright means it's not a security issue. if so, they would appear by skype or something. this is them avoiding fans like punks.

  • jimborae James Raeburn (@jimborae) reported

    @MarkDotPeters5 @Jim936 Depends what your using them for. The Sony's have real trouble to connecting to more than one device concurrently. & Definitely can't do intelligent active call switching so using for Skype on PC while listening to music on phone is a no go. Bose no issues.

  • jdgregson Jonathan (@jdgregson) reported

    @MalwareTechBlog And if you come across one of those awful services that forces you to provide a phone number for recovery or 2FA, give them a Skype number and lock the associated Microsoft account down tight. Except this won't work with SMS shortcodes because @skype also sucks btw.

  • jumoora Raghvendra Saboo (@jumoora) reported

    @nileshtrivedi Companies want you to commute for 1:30 hrs for a 30 mins meeting that can be easily done on zoom/Skype. They insist. Ironically this industry was born due to offshoring. WFH & Remote just haven't found acceptance. Trust issues I guess.

    My sister Brandi has hugged him once in those 3 years. I have not hugged my nephew or seen him since. Just on Skype occasionally. Brandi gets TWO per week. 20 min only. Our system is corrupt and broken. Ivan, our family has never been the same.

  • EliasRanz Elias Ranz (@EliasRanz) reported

    @WesNemo I mean they've already invested heavily in the Skype ecosystem so they have a good service that they were able to build on top of. Buying Slack IMO would have been a step backwards in that front. Slack doesn't really add anything revolutionary that couldn't be added in.
