MSN & YIM
« 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.

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.

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 It alway's freez my Computer.

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

MSN Messenger Ver.6.2 is cool. My Genius Webcam and my Ross Microphone works fine on it. I never crash.

I can also see two people at the same time 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.
