Skype is down. What else is there?

August 16, 2007 19 By Tad Reeves

I finally had the neccessity today to set up a little bit of VoIP action, so decided to try out a few stations running Skype.  Worked great when I fired it up yesterday, along with the 5.1 million other users which were reportedly up using Skype last night. 

However, there appears to have been some manner of catastrophic failure at Skype, resulting in my not being able to log back in all morning, and not even being able to download the Windows software all day today.  I finally was able to log in, and my handy Linux Skype client says I’m one of only 74,000 other people who have managed to log in. 


So, as you can imagine, I’m trying to find alternatives to Skype.     Looking now at MSN Messenger and Yahoo.  Anyone have any other ideas?
