Skype blames buggy Windows software, swamped servers for outage

| |

Skype today blamed last week's outage on a combination of overloaded instant messaging servers, buggy software, and the failure of its "supernode" infrastructure.

In a lengthy blog entry Wednesday, Lars Rabbe, Skype's chief information officer, provided more details on the outage that kept the instant message, Internet telephone and video chat service offline for much of Dec. 22 and parts of Dec. 23.
