    hey Beefy you figured a way to stop that blasted M$ mesage from coming through? Ive blocked all other users not on my list, I've added the blasted messenger name and blocked it but I still get this blasted message like every other minute on my home pc but only when I log in at the work one and my ICQ/AOL/MSN now shut down and restart cuz of flap errors, u think trillian is gonna fix that?

    I haven't done anything about it. I get one msg when I log on to MSN, which I just close. As far as I know, Trillian 2.0 Pro supports it properly, which has been released now (need to pay for it though). I'm hoping they do release a patch for it...

    Yahoo's trying to cut out 3rd party programs now too.

    http://story.news.yahoo.com/news?tmp...pcworld/112511

    Yahoo has started notifying users of older versions of its Yahoo Messenger client that they must upgrade by September 24 or be unable to log on, says Mary Osako, a Yahoo spokesperson.


    However, the change does not affect only Yahoo users. As a result of the update, third-party IM clients could also be locked out of the Yahoo IM network. Users who connect to Yahoo's network via some versions of Trillian, a popular IM client that consolidates multiple IM accounts, also are getting Yahoo's upgrade alert each time they log on.
    Whats interesting is I dont get that mesage to update my yahoo lol
