Default The Kugai MSN Dickhead Manouver

Ok, after completely making an ass of myself, here's what happened

This evening, after a wee bit of wandering around the Net, I found that there was a new version of MSN available called Windows Live Messenger. Not one to be backwards in coming foward, and always looking for things to improve chat on MSN, I decided to download and install this new Messenger 'Upgrade'

Imagine my horror and panic when I found it had completely wiped my Contact List!!!

Fortunately, through the help of a friend, I have managed to to restore back to the older version of MSN I was using (7.5) and I now have my Contact List back.

I know I could have gotten you all back through time, effort and memory, but I'm just as glad I didn't have to!

Anyway, panic over, and I'm backk to my old self

I've been using Windows Live Messenger on my loaner laptop, and it has my contact list. Of course I didn't install WLM, it was already on the machine, I just logged in to it...

I'm starting to dislike MSN more and more with its ever increasing commercials... Now when I video chat I get a commercial in the video screen before it will connect.

I accept that there have to be some ad pics when prorgams are free but there is a limit/line of no return (read: Hans will either buy or use another program). A pity iChat (Apple's client) won't talk to MSN (yet; the Apple does have it's own - better styled - MSN version but that doesn't allow video)

I'm bad enough with msn as it is!

Maybe I only had the Beta version but, when I tried it, it wouldn't let me e-mail anybody who didn't have it too: so I ditched it.

I've had no problems using WLM and I can still chat to Kugai with it, dunno if it was luck or what but I never lost any contacts or such but I dunno about video chats as Mom's webcam isn't set up properly yet anyway...

OK, not sure what happened that first time, but I bit the bullet today and Downloaded and Installed it again. It worked this time, and I even got the new Plus Version as well!

Really wierd what happened, but I'm glad it worked this time.

And I'm lucky that I can get this to work for me! When it comes to computers I'm totally out inept. I think we used to have Yahoo messenger on the computer but we have such a slow dial up connection it wasn't worth it.
