Skype Down--Are they Out?

This morning I attempted to log in to my Skype account management page and went nowhere. That's funny because their HeartBeat page reports that the problem was fixed. Well, it's not.

But it seems given the support for their web ops in based in the UK and in the Ukraine there's no body still working as it's after hours there now. Guess the web page isn't the only thing that's out.

Telephone companies have also reverted to this non-24/7/365 mentality, but the issue here is Skype is not supporting customers in real time in the time zones they reside it. As a paying customer that's not acceptable business practice any longer. Maybe when Skype was "free" but as someone who uses Skype for Business, pays for services, numbers and plans, not being able to see, manage and gain clarity as to the state of accounts is unacceptable. 

I guess they switched from Linux to Microsoft servers... :-(
