This question came from our site for computer enthusiasts and power users.

Works fine here i.imgur.com/YEa8h.png – Sathya Dec 25 '10 at 19:32
Also, heartbeat.skype.com claims all is fine. (Well, it actually is not, but Skype might not know about that.) – Arjan Dec 26 '10 at 10:30

Skype had some major problems. In some regions you are still being redirected to http://www.skype.com/intl/en-us/StatusUpdate/ which itself redirects to the blog.

The same issue when testing with Web-Sniffer:

Connect to on port 443 ... ok

GET /account/password-reset-request HTTP/1.1

I guess you either need to wait, or contact Skype support. Without faking your whereabouts there's not a lot you can do about it on your own computer.
