    I still can't offer new content atm because I'm still in recovery from my surgery and have a 2nd procedure on Tuesday, but I can offer ANYTHING/everything I've already shot. I'd also be willing to mark you down for a Skype or Discord date next month, if you're interested.

  • BigB1605 Ben Reinhart (@BigB1605) reported

    @MicrosoftHelps I thought that might be the problem as well. I use the same account as my Xbox Live Account for OneDrove (don't use Skype or Office) however I have my outlook address and my hotmail (hotmail is my Xbox Live account) signed into my device for email.

  • VinnieTesla Vinnie Tesla is not as outlandish as he could be. (@VinnieTesla) reported

    @internetofshit I tried to figure out why copy/paste was b0rked on my work copy of Word at one point. Turns out it was because someone had installed Skype on the machine. Skype had listed this as a known issue for years. Years!

    @SteveMcRae_ Easy fix, stop making fans. Then you wouldn't have to worry about missing that, lol. Jokes aside, I do find discord voice superior to skype.

    @CatioMiles @lexathon @joswinson So Skype owned by Microsoft is using food banks in your opinion. Bless em. Yeah I see my error! Poor buggers.

  • MahtabFarid Mahtab Farid (@MahtabFarid) reported

    @RBehrouzDO @JZarif @NIACouncil In Farsi they say, نون به نرخ روز میخورند. I and I believe that. Now our so called experts from a Skype in their kitchen will say whatever that can help them get the next funding.

    @Stephanie19636 I just checked on high and you were trying to Skype Saint Peter to get him to play with his ass. That donkey has been through so much recently it wasn’t fair. 200 hail Mary’s and see me after the service

  • unfittwit unfittwit (@unfittwit) reported

    use Zoom instead of Skype. much less problems and more secure

  • Babak_BKHT Babak (@Babak_BKHT) reported

    @SoOpranOoS @mahdi @Skype That's right. Although some of my friends got calls from @DeutscheBank that their normal account will be suspended soon. Only @sparkasse is still providing service to Iranians in germany without problems.

  • FindomFawn 👑 Goddess Bambi Kush 👑 (@FindomFawn) reported

    @Cammi_Cams @Skype needs to realize that well over 1/2 the people who use their service only even have it downloaded for these purposes, whether they are a performer or a consumer. Get your head out of the middle ages & jump on the bandwagon...profit!! #giveusaplatform

  • DalpraPaul Paul D (@DalpraPaul) reported

    @CatioMiles @HumbNarpoSec @AtelierPx @lexathon @joswinson You could argue that if a company has nothing but losses, the model is bad and it ought to close down. Hopefully assets then compensate those losing their jobs, although often they don't. Skype is more complex as it is owned by MS, so balance sheets can be manipulated.

  • michaelkammes Michael Kammes (@michaelkammes) reported

    @DylanReeve @ChristianGlawe Seriously, experiment with the "Posterize Time" effect if you use Premiere. And also still, pixelated frames over low res audio. I like to call it the "Skype Glitch".

  • JakeB11492550 Master Jake (@JakeB11492550) reported

    @x0_1372 Only problem is Skype 8's interface is kinda a pain in the ass. But the good news is it did improve Web Skype by a lot.

  • qulntosh Quintosh (@qulntosh) reported

    @IanCutress personally I wish we could just ditch skype because of stuff like this haha it was more of an idea, to see if its account-bound issue so maybe its caused by a weird setting saved on the account which is why it spread to all devices, I wish I could help more, it sounds so annoying

  • jiwooyeri crow (@jiwooyeri) reported

    @uswwnt we can fix this somehow. get skype and i can screen share my xbox with you and you can tell me what to do on destiny like a puppetmaster

  • IanCutress Dr. Ian Cutress ✈️ #SC19 (@IanCutress) reported

  • BevanWeir Bevan Weir (@BevanWeir) reported

    @KatrinWebb @I_A_Dickie I have to second Zoom, our in house solution is 'skype for business' that works OK internally but terrible for third parties. Either way you miss those after conference 'networking' beers!

    and yeah distance is a problem at times, but when you have a moment to talk to someone about your situation, whatever it may be, talk to them, cause mixed signals aint cute. stop that shit and start communicating, ppl are only one call, text, skype, facetime, WHATEVER, away

  • whuite_rose Jennie 🇨🇦 (@whuite_rose) reported

    @WolfishHead If u think he’s shilling then call him via Skype and debate him! He’s had a lot of ppl debate him and he’s open to hearing criticism. He has done a lot of work debunking zio topics and issues. I respect u and the work u do but I’m my opinion, calling him a shill is disingenuous

  • SpoiltprincessG SpoiltprincessG (@SpoiltprincessG) reported

    @Vera_Luxe I ask for their linkedin or social media. Most dont want to send ID. If a slave who served me fir years only I sometimes dont ask for that much screening info. The ones who make an issue don't get a session with me. Lately I request a skype interview.

  • vhdlrband Jordan Weaver (@vhdlrband) reported

    If MSN Messenger never shut down i wonder how it wouldve impacted social media today I dont think @Microsoft realized how much it kept users on PCs. It was an important platform and Skype is by no means a replacement. MSN messenger was by far the best

    So the owner of @SemaltCom has not only spammed my email, he tracked me down on my skype I don't even use. I'm absolutely horrified. This is NOT PROFESSIONAL.

  • JulieLarkin305 Julianne Pollard-Larkin, PhD (@JulieLarkin305) reported

    @AdairaLandryMD @dr_uche_bee I think this is the hugest issue: most departments lack a critical number of URMs. I honestly don’t remember being interviewed ever by another URM. We may have to suggest Skype interviews with URMs as a solution.

    Hey writers of color who have survived MFA's I'm currently having a major issue in my program, and I don't know what to do about it. I really am in need of advice about what my options are. Anyone have time to skype. I'm not trying to subject myself to white violence, but...

  • thebritishertwi thebritisher (@thebritishertwi) reported

    @Wirecast Well, the proposal to use Skype was made once I mentioned to support the problems on one stream with a guest needing to log back off rendezvous and then come back on again for things to work and our having no idea why, as otherwise things remained the same.

    Argh. @microsoft won't accept a @skype phone # for verification of an office 365 business account. Sends me to a tech support tunnel of no help/return =(.
