MSN goes the way of the Yahoo!

Posted 26 June 2004

For the past two weeks I've been trying to delete all of my MSN buddies from my buddy list. Unfortunately, MSN isn't an open standard, so the Gaim developers have been forced to feverishly reverse engineer everything. Happily, their latest release has fixed the issue, and I'm now able to successfully delete buddies without them magically reappearing the next time I log on. wiigii! Of course, one of my friends is using MSN exclusively, so I won't drop MSN completely yet.

Props to Caleb Martin for being the first person to take advantage of the fact that I've published my Jabber ID on this site.
