I remember a time when Skype was actually a pretty good IM service before Micro$oft got their dirty shitty mitts on it.
Seriously, this god forsaken program is such a memory hog that it manages to slow my gaming rig down to a crawl sometimes. When it's not, it frequently causes my router to have a seizure instead. Unlimited high speed broadband my ass!
The latest redesign of Skype's interface is fucking stupid as well. Just like how Micro$oft shoved Windows 8 in everybody's faces, despite it only catering to the tablet demographic. This new design looks like something you would see on an iphone. Oh yeah. I can totally see myself walking down the street holding my 20 kilo Alienware up to my ear when trying to voice chat with one of my friends. This is a PC, not a phone! Use a more appropriate interface for it, you bunch of fucking wankers!
And in addition, I keep on getting this weird glitch where Skype fails to send messages to my friends. But it seems to do it selectively. I was trying to respond to one of my friends last night, but Skype now insists on eating all the messages I try to send to him. Now they're angry at me because I'm "ignoring them". Thanks Skype! As if I'm not already on thin ice with my friends as it is, you spring this bullshit on me! Meanwhile, I'm able to send messages to a different friend perfectly fine. I mean...... WHAT???
What the fuck happened? How did they fuck this thing up so bad?
Does anyone have any suggestions for alternative programs I can use because I am so done with this piece of shit.
