Anyone else has that problem? I try https://login.skype.com/account/password-reset-request and I get redirected to http://blogs.skype.com/en/.

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
Host: login.skype.com
Connection: close
Accept-Charset: ISO-8859-1,UTF-8;q=0.7,*;q=0.7
Cache-Control: no-cache
Accept-Language: de,en;q=0.7,en-us;q=0.3
Referer: http://web-sniffer.net/


Status: HTTP/1.1 302 Found
Date: Sun, 26 Dec 2010 10:11:25 GMT

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.
