I’m really getting frustrated with Skype on a variety of levels. My troubles with 2.0 on my MacBook never got resolved, so I went back to 1.5 and got it working for a while, but now the same thing is happening again. No one shows up online in my list of contacts. Nothing I do fixes it. And despite repeated requests for help from Skype, I’ve never gotten a reply. Now I know the folks at Skype have more pressing issues, but this is seriously getting me down, and it is a known issue. I’ve come to rely on Skype to keep in touch with a whole bunch of folks, and now unless I boot up my Tablet PC, I can’t. Really stinks…and what stinks even more is that I have no clue what to do about it.
UPDATE: So I take it back for now…I just downloaded the new beta and it seems to be working. And, it may have been user error…seems my profile got set to offline somehow…ugh. Must have been my kids. Yeah. That’s it. Those kids messin’ with my MAC again.
Color me embarassed…

Seems like a great reason to spring the not too many bucks for Parallels. Then you should be able to run the windows version of Skype in a window. I will have to download the new beta as well. I was having the same problems, but I don’t use Skype as much so I was just running it on the windows side of my Boot Camp dual boot.
I’m so glad you got the newer Skype beta! Mary Marotta and I have been using it for maybe a month now with our PCs and there are fewer issues with synching up and feedback than previous versions.

my profile defaults to offline all the time on my mac. Happy it’s so easy to use 🙂
