excuse me while i find and beat the fool who decided this.

or heck, i can just screw with the build identifier and make it appear chinese.

unless plus for skype actually reaches feature parity with plus for messenger, and is made to work with wlm plus plugins.

We all knew it was coming, sadly.

R.I.P Messenger, Messenger Plus!, etc etc. :(

Thinking about it, MSN changed my life. I would have never found Messenger plus! and in turn this forum, and so on.  Strange how such a small thing can path my way in life. If you know what I mean..

So much oldies in here :)

Posting in "MSN/Windows (Live) Messenger ", we went through quite a few changes. But this time it really is the end of an era :(. Messenger users have gone down for quite a while, forums posts were already near extinct, and I haven't used Microsoft's client for some time. By all means Messenger was already dying, but Microsoft pulling the plug makes it official.

So much happened through good old MSN. From all the late night IM conversations with people I already knew, to getting into customizing the client, discovering Plus!, Mess.be, MSN Fanatic, and the people behind it. Got to know a lot of new people along the way and happy to still be in contact with some of them outside of the Messenger-related world. And also still refusing to let the shoutbox die.

(M) :plus: :banana:

I guess the forum will at least stay around as long as Yuna continues to develop Messenger Plus! for Skype. If it was up to me it will also stay around after that if only just for nostalgia. Hosting costs nearly nothing and I already own a server I could put it on anyway. But Yuna controls the domain name.

Jesus I haven't been on here in so long. Pretty sad to see Microsoft retire WLM, but it was only a matter of time before it happened to be fair. Although I never really contributed much, I learnt a lot when I was younger on here and I've yet to find a nicer community. You guys/girls are awesome.
