Skype are claiming that with their outage last week was due to massive numbers of people re-starting their computers after downloading Microsoft’s monthly software update!
I am sure they are correct, despite how implausible it sounds.
I am just curious about how Skype managed to keep the service running every other month that Microsoft has released patches.
UPDATE: – Skype have published a more detailed explanation of the outage.

There was a new Windows client released a few days before the outage as far as I can remember. Maybe the outage was triggered by those using the latest client rather than previous ones?
Hey Tom – there’s an update about this issue on the Skype blog posted today that explains the connection
Thanks Kris – post updated.
