Skype’s latest update broke the Skype Status Flick gadget today, so I’ve released an update which fixes the problem, as well as a few bugs that cropped up since the initial SkypeStatusFlick release.

If you don’t know what Skype Status Flick is, here’s a quick overview: if you use Skype behind a firewall/router, your status often ‘times out’, making you appear offline to all your contacts, when in fact you are still logged in to Skype. SkypeStatusFlick addresses this problem by sending an update to the Skype servers every 5 minutes, reminding them that you are still online.
