Updated: Dec.23 7:40am Noted from Skype website:
"An update on the downtime which has been affecting many of you around the world: the ability of one Skype user to find another relies on what we call ‘supernodes’, and yesterday, a number of these failed due to a software issue, which we’ve now identified.

Will reading WikiLeaks cost students jobs with the federal government?

This is very interesting post from CNN website. "Will reading WikiLeaks cost students jobs with the federal government? U.S. agencies have warned some employees that reading the classified State Department documents released by WikiLeaks puts them at risk of losing their jobs. But what about students considering jobs with the federal government? Do they jeopardize their chances by reading WikiLeaks?" (CNN, 2010)
