Skype Blames Microsoft Patch Tuesday for Outage

ViceClown Not MSs Fault (286 comments)

I think this story is badly titled. My understanding is that the outage happened because of patch Tuesday but Skype isn't blaming Microsoft for it. In fact it helped reveal a flaw in their p2p healing networking stack. I'm as much a /. fanboy as the next guy but this title is inflammatory and misleading.

Well... this is my first journal entry. I sure hope Banjo becomes more stable in the coming days/weeks. It seems to be up and down like a yo-yo today. Word.
