Title: MSN & YIM
Post by: Say on June 18, 2004, 09:37:43 AM
This is about MSN and Yahoo Instant Messenger, since I dont want this to become who is the best or who sucks due technical reasons more than user preference, please let's limitate the tech commentary to less as possible because I want -everyone- to feel free to comment even if you know peanuts about it, for example let's begin.

this is a screenshot I took of both programs, obviously I believe YIM looks waaaay better now even prettier than even MSN now :)

I much prefer yahoo but not many people use it. Like the way you can send an IM wether or not someones online so when they log they get it. And also I like the way that you can have your cam on and not have to invite people to view or vice versa. Just little things like that make all the difference.

The only redeeming factor of MSN is Messenger plus which adds a whole new level of functions to MSN making it near IRC like.

EDIT: OH and also yahoo has the new radio feature too, which has some really cool stations on it.

Im kind of YIM addicted now, I really really like it, do you have your avatar done yet?! :)

Oh oh and the audibles too! omg they are SO cool! And yeah just added it!

Post by: Say on June 19, 2004, 05:34:08 PM
well... this is going to be like "The YIM Ad thread :P" but hahaha honestly, if you dont have it, at least give it a try (if possible) its somehow better than MSN in many user/interface features, it even has launch yahoo! you can listen to radio and everything, it's really neat.

I might try it, but first I'm going to look for an alternative. I don't plan on trying it, until I buy/find/borrow a new modem.

YIM Avatars need more work, dangnabbit!  

No beards, no glasses, no fatties like me.

Pffft!  Impossible! :D

You should certainly write them and complain! "Dang it, how come there's no beer bellies? Specifically Molson Dry ones, hrmm? No beards appropriate for living in the 'frozen north', what gives?! And where's muh durn RCMP uniform?! Argh!!!" At this point in the letter, you'd probably toss it into the fireplace... And go grab yourself another Molson. ;) [/dream sequence]

MOLSON?  Pffft...I drink beer with flavour, thank you.  The only way I can drink Molson products is if I mix them with Clamato juice...*wretch*

I hate YIM(http://www.tombraiderforums.com/forums/graemlins/violent.gif) It alway's freez my Computer. (http://www.tombraiderforums.com/forums/graemlins/bash.gif)

:-[ I was told that it only works for Windows XP, that is why i have Windows 98SE

MSN Messenger Ver.6.2 is cool. (http://www.tombraiderforums.com/forums/graemlins/thumb.gif) My Genius Webcam and my Ross Microphone works fine on it. I never crash. (http://www.agdiforums.com/forum/images/smiles/happy.gif)

I can also see two people at the same time (http://www.freshunderage.com/forums/images/smiles/cwm44.gif) when i'm typing to two people and they can see me, but i can only talk to one person and he can talk to me.

I have no Avatar and no profile. (http://us.i1.yimg.com/us.yimg.com/i/mesg/emoticons6/13.gif)

You want to know what's hilarious, Alex.  I was looking at some of the guys features, and putting outfits together.  Figured out I liked the black oxford shirt best.  And then, as I'm running through previous posts here before I post my avatar...I see that you've got the black oxford shirt!  Whoo hoo.  Do we have some great tastes or what? lol

Ok...my avatar!

Awww...thankees, Jason!  Unfortunately, they didn't have a hair style exactly like mine...oh well...can't have everything.  Also, I've never worn a halter top or anything close to it before...but I AM beginning to look for some... ;D

Hmmm... YIM is interesting now... not a whole lot of variation in avatars yet though. ;P
Title: Re:MSN & YIM
Post by: koko_99_2001 on June 21, 2004, 08:12:23 AM
Well, I can't blame you guys for that...when we were on the mission trip and got stranded w/ a flat tire (which, actually, was where we were eating supper...which was right next to a mall), my friends and I went into a store in the mall...Maurice's.  Found some CUTE halter top dresses...but too tight on the hips (they'd actually run out of my size, so I was trying on a smaller size to see how the halter looked).  I liked what I saw...now just have to find the right size! lol

Ok...now back onto avatars...anyone have any new ones you'd like to post?

Depends on how what you're looking at.  I thought the same until I realized that I had to click on the link saying "customize avatar" or something like that.  Then I saw how many choices we had!

Even with that there's not much choice though. ;) They seem to think that all YIM users are skinny prepubescent teenagers. ;P

Post by: J-ROC on June 21, 2004, 09:38:31 AM
Yeah, where's the fat, balding, bearded old man with glasses look that I so desire?!

They also need a "grumpy" look.  Something surly, but not nearly as vicious as "angry". :D

As far as I'm concerned, they can take all the time they want, I still see no reason why I should download and use it anyways. 8)

CC's even more stubborn/obstinate than I am... I admire that in an odd sort of way.

At any rate... if I ever felt inspired to get a YIM account I'd just use Trillian anyway, so avatars matter to me little. ;)

Peace & Luv, Liz
