    Windows Messenger Security Update

    ATTENTION: IMMEDIATE ACTION REQUIRED FOR MSN AND WINDOWS MESSENGER USERS.

    You are receiving this e-mail because you are a MSN Messenger or Windows
    Messenger Service user.

    As part of Microsoft's Trustworthy Computing initiative, Microsoft is
    updating the .NET Messenger Service and providing you with an important
    MSN Messenger or Windows Messenger security update.

    If you are using MSN Messenger 5.0, Windows Messenger 4.7.2000, or MSN
    Messenger for Mac 3.5, or any versions higher than these, you do NOT need
    this security update. To find out which version you have, select the
    'Help' menu in Messenger, then select 'About'. If you are using an older
    version, or are not sure, please visit:
    http://messenger.msn.com/Help/Upgrades.aspx
    for an update.

    NOTICE: If you are not using an updated version, you will be unable to
    continue using your MSN Messenger or Windows Messenger Service.

    Thank you for helping Microsoft further its commitment to helping you
    protect your privacy and security online.

    You can view the .NET Messenger Statement of Privacy at:

    NOTICE: If you are not using an updated version, you will be unable to continue using your Windows operating Service and you will receive the error "operating system not found! please insert your floppy disk. (floppy device required to boot non Microsoft partitions)

    Thank you for helping Microsoft further its commitment to helping you

    Well it's starting to seem like that they want to kill off those multi service IM programs such as Trillan and Intergity Messenger (And also it seems like that they may be trying to get people to get their best verison yet! Verison 6.0) But anyway those 3rd party messengers don't have support for Lanuch Site stuff and they are themeable. Now if you want skinned IM's and you want to use the .NET messenger service, Just get a hacked verison and your on the way from getting away from 3rd party messengers. And this is bad news for linux users (They don't have a linux native MSN Messenger) So get that wine out!

    AOL did the same thing with their IM. I wouldn't doubt the aim is to get everyone using the best? and eventually charging.

    IT would be too expensive to chat. Then we would create the TZ IM so we can comunicate without being charged.

    does anyone use that feature? it would come in handy if the $$ per IM was used.

    I tryed chatting with Stripe, but he never answered. I thinK the chat feature needs an AWAY Status or something like that, since most of us leave WASTE on but are away doing something else (sleeping, Eating, working etcing)

    Good point Dehc, are they or will there be any updates to this WASTE program? especially since its being pulled from the mainstream net!

    An AWAY status would be good. It is possible that there will be an update to WASTE as it was released under the GPL.
