  7. I sure hope this Windows Live Messenger will be a lot better than MSN Messenger 7… I think MSN Messenger 7 (any 7.x version) sucks, too many annoying features I don’t want to have like buzzers, winks, animated emoticons… Good thing someone invented Gaim.
    I just hope that Live Messenger will be more customizable than MSN Messenger 7 is/was.

  9. Just thought I’d let you Gaim users know that one of the changes in WLM8 is a new protocol for talking to the servers (which lets them handle a lot more connections with the same number of servers) so things might break in a while.

    Here’s the post, and the reason why (180+ million users):!5B410F7FD930829E!5764.entry?_c11_blogpart_blogpart=blogview&_c=blogpart#permalink

  11. Hmmm….. I use a Mac. It does look interesting tho, but I will just have to survive using my curret program for Mac, Adium.
    Have a gd weekend! I also like the background :D

  12. I do believe there is a MSN Messenger for MacOS X.
    @Russ: trust me, they’ll find a way, they did it before, they’ll do it again and if not, I still refuse to use a program that I don’t like, but if Live Messenger is good enough in my eyes I might consider using it instead of Gaim.


    February 9, 2006 at 11:15 pm

  13. So you need an invitation to use WLM?


    February 10, 2006 at 12:28 am

  17. hi everyone, im in bath at the moment, having a lazy afternoon so i jumped on laurens pc to check my email. When you only check your email once a day it kind builds up quite a bit.

    Having a great time here, although i feel kinda guilty for not posting anything today.

    But i do have quite a few interesting posts coming up next week.. and maybe a few prizes too.

    If anyone wants a cocomment invite i can sort you out just drop me and email or a comment.

    Thanks for all your comments

    yahoo – randomnez123[at]

  19. hi atariboy! hi all, first time on your blog, got here via cocomments where i saw your nick in big letters ATARIBOY :)
    but, about the post you entered above, i’m on ichat using a jabber account to log into the friends using MSN..could you comment, when you get back, any nice new feature of MSN live…ichat allows me also to do video chat, like the skype so i don’t see a reason to upgrade to MSN live apart from guessing that it should be exclusive to windows based machines..but i will just like to compare. and here one cocomment invite i got to spare: 0310-4142-1343 did you saw the new feature? you can now invite friends from the cocomment site…cheers!

  21. Well there isn’t much point in adding AtariBoy is in Bath, therefore slightly inactive. But anyway, I will also add you probably…

    And Ryan B… nice yahoo name… “huskie” :P Will probably add you also…

  22. I feel like the Spice Girls here, Ryan B and Ryan C… :P

    Hey there I use a Mac as well, I wonder if Microsoft are going to update their messenger program for Mac any time soon, we’re still on version 5 I think!

    I use Adium anyway, its like Trillian, only more customisable.

    PS Nice hair by the way, was thinking of doing mine that colour, but we’ll see!


    February 11, 2006 at 11:03 pm

  23. I’m back from bath now, although i’m going to make you wait a little longer until tomorrow afternoon for the suprises.

    I’ve been travelling all day and im shattered now.
