Meanwhile, you can simply leave your Skype client running and as soon as the issue is resolved, you will be logged in. Skype have apologize for the inconvenience and has downloads of Skype software have been temporarily disabled. They have promised to make the downloads available again as quickly as possible after they fixed their glitch.
So there you go. Do not rely on 1 communication channel if you rely on VoIP for your business or to make important personal calls. Diversify and put your eggs in several baskets :)
You can contact me via Skype, MSN and GoogleTalk.
