This is a sad day for the community. But not completely unexpected.

Messenger Plus!, your baby, looses its founder. But children grow up and at some point you need to let them go and let them find their own way. All I can hope is that everything you've put into it over these years was not in vein, only time will tell I suppose. Be sure that some of us will keep an eye on it ;)

What others already have said goes for me too: you can always count on me for whatever you need in your future projects, both software-wise (except for apps for mobile phones or facebook apps :P), as IRL-wise!

Anyways, a very big thanks for all the good times. Messenger Plus! really shaped a big part of my life too and because of it I have met quite a lot of people, traveled (a small part of) the world and made lots of very good friends. And even learned a small bit of English. Thanks again for all of that!

But yeah, let's continue to have some meeting now and then, so we can mumble about the good ol' times... [Image: old.gif], hehehe.
(and I'd like to take you up on that anti-stress offer too some day...)

So... I guess this is really the end of the final chapter of a bestseller.
But it isn't a farewell though, the first chapter of the sequel is already worked upon...

I hate to say it, but I told you so..... And so my life on the internet has come full circle, or is it more like dj vu?

And if that thread gets deleted, I made a backup just in case:

Dammit Cyril, you're making me feel old and I'm only 18! :P

First of all, you have my greatest appreciations for everything you've done for Plus! and the community. I can't find the words to describe how much I love being part of this project, it's even harder to do so in a second language.

With every release, you raised the bar for yourself and amazed us with cool nifty features time and time again. Even when Microsoft decided to revamp their whole program (from MSN 7.5 to WLM 8.0), you managed to crack the code and brought Plus! back on WLM, more a-Live than ever (silly pun, I know). Not only did you fix Plus! for the newer versions, you kept on delivering features: as small as transparent windows or as huge as complete skinning and scripting environments. There's just no stopping you and I like that attitude. I'm afraid you became my idol for how to be a software developer, I hope you don't mind. :P

I guess I'll stay here for now and see how the new parents treat your brainchild. I hope they picked up your enthusiasm and continue to make Plus! the best Messenger add-on. I think it's a bit too early to judge them after just one release, we'll see how this evolves.

It's sad to see you go but as you said yourself, nothing lasts forever. I wish you all the best for the future, enjoy your life with your family and continue being awesome. (H)

So long, and thanks for all the fish. :)

What can I say? The Messenger community has had Messenger Plus! at its heart and after a piecemeal decline over the past couple of years, I think I can say this is all now over.

It has been great to get to know you all throughout the years. But now I can't really see the community going any further, there is virtually nobody behind Messenger anymore.

All I say actually say is thanks for the good years and for all the help everyone has gave me personally since 2005, including Patchou.

You'll be missed Cyril :)

With Patchou gone, I can see us getting censored in no time. They'll have no reason to listen to us, or to listen to suggestions.

If they don't have Patchou to please, they can do what the fuck they want.
