It seems there is a 'fix' to enable log-in again.
Problems signing into Skype and making calls [heartbeat.skype.com]

It seems it may manifest itself when restarting skype. It may be fine when you remain logged in. There appears to be a file called shared.xml that needs deleting while skype is shut down. The file is recreated when restarting.

Some wags are blaming the outages on Microsoft's recently announced purchase of the company, but that's simply not true; the deal is still pending regulatory approval, and for the moment, the companies remain separate.
calm down guys its not MS

It seems that a similar problem is occurring.
My Skype crashed a couple of hours ago and the program itself won't run.

yep, i've been off skype for about 3 hours now.... finally getting some spotty access.

I'm guessing your skype program will actually run. The whole program crashes and shuts down so i can't tell if service is back up.
