Skype Broke - Not bad timing - kinda important

Yeah, for some stupid reason, it has random spasms where when I log in, as soon as I click the text box, Skype crashes completely. It's rather infuriating.

...for the most part.

JUST before that issue, I was intending on posting a journal to you guys to something of this effect:

I just haven't been feeling very...talkative lately. I wanna be social, but my heart doesn't really feel into it for the time being. It's nobody's fault and I'm not depressed/sad, I don't think.  Either way though, yeah, I'm just not feeling too...up on the whole talking thing. I really pray this is a short stint. I don't want this to last, I want to be out there again. Feel like I'm still part of the community, and feel that I'm actually able to be interesting, and hold people's interest, and hold conversations again. That's something I seem no longer to be able to just be good at anymore. Who knows, maybe because...yeah I'm a good friend to many, I love my friends and they love me, but part of my heart, I feel like to many, I'm like a 2nd string friend. Yeah, cool to talk to from time to time, but not entirely cool enough to wanna invite to functions or really take the time to hang out with, for some reason or another. And even if this isn't the case, that's what it feels like.

All I know is that I want 2012 to be different. I want to be able to be totally available on Skype. I want to be fully available on MSN, AIM, and YIM. And despite it being as easy as a few installs and a couple clicks, and a bit of typing on my part, my heart simply is NOT into doing that right now and hasn't been in quite a while. So if anything, after all this rambling, I feel that whole '2nd string friend' feeling is pretty much entirely my fault. So it's kinda an annoying, vicious cycle.

Either way, I can't wait til this is over, wait til this is fixed, and can't wait til I have my own laptop so I can go back to being the old, social me. I miss you guys, and I miss me, too.

u.u Mavy, I think we need to talk. Can you at least TRY to talk to me on F-Chat?

My skype did the same thing on my laptop for no reason.... Then magically the other day it started working again.
Hope you feel better soon though!

That happens to me too with Skype, click on the home button and it crashes from time to time and will need to be restarted. Obviously it's a bug with Skype, let's hope they have it worked out before the next release.

As for your other concern: Join the club, I'm in a similar boat as far as not getting invited to things goes. I'd like to elaborate on this topic but sadly I'm drawing a blank right now.

One thing you can try Mavy, is to delete your profile directory.  It's under %appdata%\skype and the directory is named after your username.  PM if you need help finding it

You have to delete your skype folder. I have to do that sometimes sadly but if you go to %appdata%\skype and just delete the folder it should work. Just make sure you remember your log in name and password before doing this. ^^;

Oh, I had this as soon as I tried to use it on my laptop for the first time. It wasn't until I downloaded the beta version that it was all fixed. o.o

Ive had this problem too (Twice now) All I did was re-download skype and reinstall it. Problem solved.

Skype = Virus

Another large problem with skype is when it thinks that it doesn't have enough allocated processor space (even when it doesn't need it).  Try not having too many open conversations.  As for the salt of the matter, welcome to my world, but then again- who am I again? Nobody knows. *peace. out.*

Well just try some of the regular things to get it fixed. If those don't work I may suggest one of those website solutions. I don't know if there are any for Skype, but most of the other ones you don't even need a program any longer. =O
