    @CodeTravelled @StackOverflow @github #coding I have been given a school assignment: to create "pong" using python. Unfortunately, I have no experience in programming. Can someone help me out via discord, skype, instagram, reddit or an audio-chat of your choice? Cheers!

  • SophieKirsch Sophie Kirsch (@SophieKirsch) reported

    @SkypeSupport I need to access my Skype account but the email attached to the account is no longer active. Please help me reset the password. Your automated system isn't working because I can't access the email.

  • hafipakac Hafi (@hafipakac) reported

    @citrusminttee Ouh no worries. Kalau rajin boleh try isolate issue cause. Try meeting/video call guna Microsoft Teams or Skype. Still drain to 0% after 30 minutes?

  • Hresvoulge Edelgard @ The Beach what will they do 🏖 (@Hresvoulge) reported

    @moonIit_deer [Wow! This kid talks so much! Are kids calling letters "skype" these days?] I suppose the only question is whether you trust the establishment to help you. Do you have a dagger? [Claude always has a dagger.]

  • seermindflow Remigiusz Samosiuk (@seermindflow) reported

    @barnie207 @thurrott - because Skype has integration with windows notification pane - because all my friends (including me) use Teams for business chats but Skype (and others) for private chats - because Skype doesn't spin my laptop fan whenever there is a problem with its servers

  • Andrew_InStre Andrew_InStreatham (@Andrew_InStre) reported

    Please @moakabash tell the producer to close down every application on the PC and focus only on the Skype Application., so that the PC can muster all the resources for effective bandwidth on the calls. @TVCconnect #YourViewTVC

  • ben_woodward Ben Woodward (@ben_woodward) reported

    Github has not had a month without an outage for 8 months in a row now. Call me a cynic but it does seem like being acquired by Microsoft seems to correlate with software degradation. Other examples: Wunderlist, Skype and SwiftKey.

  • BetaSve BetaSve (@BetaSve) reported

    how long does it take for @Microsoft to screw up a service they bought? Idk, for @github it was a bit over year but I don't have a broader view. I think @Skype was about the same. Just the time for everybody to quit.

    Help Kids from eastern Europe that now this situation that all the word passing trough.. they have to stay home and study from home thru the Skype or Zoom programs.. but .. many of them they not even have a Laptop.. I personally Donate 5 used computers..

  • emo_lameo toaste (@emo_lameo) reported

  • crazylenny Lenny (@crazylenny) reported

    There should be a service similar to #Cameo where you can #skype or #zoom call pieces of trash like Betsy DeVos, Lindsay Graham, or Gym Jordan and they have to listen to you tell them why they are human garbage.

  • GoddessNiyah2 Goddess Niyah (@GoddessNiyah2) reported

    This simp phone not working for our skype session lol, i'm about to drain him just because of the technical difficulty !!!

  • HarleyLane_Tx ✯Harley Lane✯ (@HarleyLane_Tx) reported

    Looking for a video chat platform similar to skype that is reliable and easy to figure out for most? Having so many issues with skype. Their set up and function is so outdated it makes it hard for others to accept my calls... lame :/

  • 9inko tavi (@9inko) reported

  • tanandaaa Ana Mandic (@tanandaaa) reported

    @johncutlefish I worked in several companies with remote teams in different countries. In such setup, having only phone/skype calls for *everything* is bad choice, and terrible for culture

  • TheColossus Leeroy Jenkins! (@TheColossus) reported

    @CompoundBoss Things have changed. My company had no problem letting us work from home to keep the machine working, now I want to stay home and move to Delaware. Before #RedChineseWuhanCovidVirus Skype interviews were meh, but now they are common so no more need for $pending for NYC studio.

  • Arkwulf Michael J. Cohen (@Arkwulf) reported

    That first Force-Skype, Rey is absolutely fearless. She’s not even remotely intimidated by Ren, even after everything in TFA. Because she defeated him! He’s not as scary as he thinks he is. She’s seen inside his broken mind.

  • IsMail33180277 Is Mail (@IsMail33180277) reported

    @RealityCheckSWE @SkepticMohamed Hey, I wanted to talk to someone who is Swedish from Sweden on these issues. Do you have Skype?

  • enfascination Seth Frey (@enfascination) reported

    @juniperlov @ALifeConf Let's do some drills: "Help, my Zoom background is more compelling than my actual talk!" "Help, everyone switched to Skype!" "I forgot, how to computer!"

  • KazeeFullford Kazee Fullford (@KazeeFullford) reported

    Just so everyone knows. This is a discord/Skype meeting so everything isn't going to be posted at 4pm. I'll have to write some stuff down and format it later for twitter

  • KamasamaK Matthew B. (@KamasamaK) reported

    @thurrott @jfigueredo From what I've read, that subscription just gets you 60 PSTN minutes per month. The normal Skype app and service is still used and free.

  • WVPinky79 Rory Coats (@WVPinky79) reported from Robinson Township, Pennsylvania

    @nytimes People I've said it before the people on the Front lines need our help check on them everyday Skype, text hell call whatever it takes they have got to have PTSD they need our help because their giving their help to us or our loved ones.

  • denajoe20 Dena🇺🇲 (@denajoe20) reported

    @catturd2 It'll never happen in person! It may happen by Skype so someone can be there to feed him answers & conviently have "technical issues" whenever needed.

  • AdviLs_ M. Scofield (@AdviLs_) reported

    Under Armour is proof you can disrupt Nike. Zoom is proof you can disrupt Skype. White Claw is proof you can disrupt Budweiser and Miller. If it ain’t broken, fix it anyways.

  • valiant8086 valiant8086 (@valiant8086) reported

    It sure was a sad day when Microsoft ditched Skype UWP. Especially now that Skype electron has gone very, very sluggish and keeps jumping me around in the history like it did a year or so ago. I've had to hold down arrow to get to the end 3 times in one chat within a 15 minutes.

  • wiselar º (@wiselar) reported

    Hey @microsoftteams, bring quoting a message to reply to your desktop app already. How is the feature available on Skype and on the mobile app but not on the one place most people use the service? @thurrott @maryjofoley.
