Hi there and welcome
I am in Europe and yes skype is having an outage at the moment.
It is not your computer, it is the Skype service.
Microsoft as of yet do not have an ETA on when this will be resolved, so you will need to wait until it just connects again (it will auto connect).
If you would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.
And if you can take a second to rate my service by clicking one of the stars at the top of the screen then submit, that would be greatly appreciated.
There is official message now released which you can see here
Still no ETA on services being restored sorry.
