5th anniversary and one less

Today Skype exists 5 years. Beautiful age, and although the glitter has somewhat faded away, we can say that until now it is quite a success story, perhaps not for eBay, but I don’t care for that.

350 million users they say, or more correct 350 million usernames registered in 5 years, and often a lot more than 10 million people online at the same time is quite an achievement.

Sadly however, somebody who was very close to me died. Therefore one username – and he had only one - will stay unused, and Skype will have to adapt its inflated marketing numbers: 349.999.999 users!

That was poetic, Jean. Please accept my condolences.
