* Microsoft, which owns Skype, said engineers were working to fix the issue
Skype users around the world have been left unable to make calls with service after a glitch made everyone appear as if they were offline.
Microsoft, which owns Skype, said the technical problem meant users signed into were unable to change their status and all contacts showed as offline even if they were online.
This meant users were unable to initiate calls to each other.
CSN editor: I needed Skype today .... but in the end I had to make a long distance phone call. Yup .... you never appreciate the tech that we have until we no longer have it.
