Apparently Skype is having problems… according to their website, logging in and downloading of Skype software has been temporarily disabled and will be for the next 12 – 24 hours.
No word yet on whether this will affect tonight’s scheduled broadcast … I’m hopeful they can fix this in less than twelve hours, but I’m not holding my breath.

UPDATE FROM THE BOOTH: We are going to postpone LLU Show #21…it was scheduled for tonight…Skype is still not working, which is very odd because it has been such a reliable tool. Stay tuned to this page for rescheduled date…
Second Update: Apparently the problem is caused by “a deficiency in an algorithm within Skype networking software” … hmmm. Is Skype getting too big for its britches?
