  • its_lindz Lindz Domminigue (@its_lindz) reported

    @Nownovanow That’s not the issue I’m talking about tho. They lack important enough and engaging enough content to warrant a full day of training. Especially w/zoom/teams/Skype trainings now. I don’t want multiple days, I want no longer than 4 hours.

    @iamdinakar @damengchen I'm in two minds about it. In a time where you hardly see people face-to-face, it might help to do video so you can see expressions and connect with people again. Do agree a lot of meetings in general could be just a quick skype/whatsapp/slack/whatever

  • venzann Dave Dustin (@venzann) reported

    @micoolpaul @Skype I've got no problem with Skype, it's what I've used for the past decade+. I was just wondering if anybody else had moved into that space

  • Spike_Woody123 SpikeWoody😈 (@Spike_Woody123) reported

    @RandomRob Mate listen to me. I only have Skype and Xbox One Minecraft. The Skype and Minecraft Xbox One you have is terrible

    @shituserstories As a Skype for Business user: I want to skype to open a focus-grabbing alert when login fails So that: I can incorrectly enter my VPN password while engaged in a constant tug of war with Skype.

  • davidbm32 David Bagus Mahendra (@davidbm32) reported

    Your phone was broken. I can't text you, so are you. We used Skype and direct message on Twitter to texting each other. Both of us know how to survive. Miss that moment, at least at once.

  • dollfacerebekah Rebekah Wear a Goddamn Mask (@dollfacerebekah) reported

    He would die 7 months later from COVID. I couldn't get down in time to see him before he died. I had to say goodbye on Skype hoping that he could hear and understand me. These 2 years have just been too much.

  • iamthejedi Deji B (@iamthejedi) reported

    Just ended a work Skype call. My mates in Toronto who are 6 hours behind are just shutting down for the day and here I am still hard at work. Day in the life of a consultant.

  • StevenRambam Steven Rambam (@StevenRambam) reported

    @LHWBos @blinkforhome Hah! Yes, I vaguely recall hearing of something called a “burner phone”, also Skype and other VOIP services...inconvenient, and not the issue. @amazon waited until customers made large investments in hardware and is now blackmailing those customers

  • PoshTeazz PoshTeaz (@PoshTeazz) reported

    @r0s_q Skype help I'm stuck in 2003

  • LarryBermanETF Larry Berman (@LarryBermanETF) reported

    @Rackman1999 My laptop is being replaced. The newest version of a software I use is a big CPU hog. It's interfering with skype. Sorry for the technical issues last few weeks. We did troubleshoot it. Thanks for the feedback.

  • DeviantDomme 🔞DivineMissDeviant (@DeviantDomme) reported

    @IrishKinkstress @AdultWorkcom Totally! I can understand the skype thing because Skype are cracking down on it, But yeah, make the broadcaster a bit better.

  • annapoon97 Anna **** (@annapoon97) reported

    @SkypeSupport My skype acc opened in 1997. Never had problem for 15 years. I still have good money in the acc. I can't open to use it now. Reset password, code dozen times. Are you keeping my money? I have never changed my user name. What can I do?

  • jadenkendam Jaden Kendam (@jadenkendam) reported

    @capenny7 You do have to remember numbers and such but I've had more technical problems when using Skype or Facebook or zoom that if I need to talk to someone, the phones just easier.

    @Asensii20 @discord Discord is so popular that the servers have gone down multiple times from stress from literal millions of people being active at once. Skype has less than 200,000 concurrent users

  • bugabuga Max Smolev (@bugabuga) reported

    @RDRv3 Their marketing is desperate. Wouldn't surprise me if next messaging went "If you ever get affected by ransomware, use Skype to call your techie friend for help. Install Skype now? YES and OF COURSE YES"

  • LeighHartley Leigh Hartley ✡💙 (@LeighHartley) reported

    For years, every time I put up notices advertising my tutoring (via Skype these days) services, someone tears them down. From all bulletin boards around. I thought of hanging one up again and waiting incognito next to a bulletin board just to photograph the PoS.

  • koanonri あんちゃん (@koanonri) reported

    LOL there's some problems with haruurureru vc on discord so sbhr suggested going back to the good ol' skype

  • micoolpaul Micoolpaul (@micoolpaul) reported

    @venzann @Skype Consumer options that are PC focused are limited but if you look at small business upwards there’s a few. Teams (technically you can use this from one user anyway) and basically Skype in terms of VOIP functionality. Gamma offer a service, Vonage etc

  • twin0mega twin0mega (@twin0mega) reported

    @vontheodore I've never used it, but I'm not surprised. Skype was terrible for like 15 years. Its finally good imo.
