I'm in the US, and it's been more then 24 hours so far.
A bigger problem then they are saying I think, or they just don't know yet.
Switching to Google Talk for now. But still letting Skype try to log in.
Also I found this-http://www.sightspeed.com/
Installed it but haven't used it yet.
Any internet link goes directly to ie7 and my default browser is Firefox.
Interesting, don't know why it does that, perhaps it's built on msm messenger, don't know.
