Is Skype Growth Slowing?

I love Skype and I’ve tracked the growth in online users since October 2003. I’ve noticed a disturbing trend the last few months. The number of concurrent online users peaked at around 6.5M users in May 2006. This peak usually occurs around 7am (Pacific Time). June and July had similar peaks but since then I have rarely seen numbers over 6.3M online users and never greater than the previous maximum. Is this caused by more people being on vacation during the summer? The next few months should answer that question.
