Post A Notice to Msn/Windows Live Users • Posted: Fri Nov 09, 2012 12:24 am
In March Microsoft will be shutting down their Windows Live service for good.

I know a lot of us use The Messenger Formerly Known as Msn to both communicate with each other and our friends, and so I come to ask for suggestions for a new messaging medium. I know file sharing is a popular feature of Msn, so a service including that would be nice. I wouldn't mind Skype, myself, but I don't know about the file sharing prospects; the option for dedicated voice chat would be nice, though.

Discussion over clients (e.g. Yahoo Messenger is Satan) is welcomed. I'm hoping we'll, for the most part, all be able to wind up on the same client again and make things easy for the lot of us.

We could always open a Ventrilo Server and just chat with one another D;

And we still have here if we want to keep in touch.

My computer hates skype. So, that's rather out of the question since I won't be getting a new one anytime soon...

Welp. Good thing we have a shoutbox.

Well, I know a good portion of us have Steam accounts here, and Steam works quite well for the basic chatting functions. I can assure all of you that Steam will not be ending any time soon, either. Another alternative would be Trillian. Supposedly they have some great update coming soon too.

You guys should consider google plus hangouts. Best audio quality out of anything I've ever used. First time I used it, I stopped using skype forever. It is superior.

I'm a little late to the party, but I sure will miss MSN D;. I have contacts with people only through that medium, so I'll lose touch with those 'every now and then' people, like Blue55, who is still very much alive :P.

But!

Steam seems to be the route that I'll use most often, perhaps Skype as well.

Steam: Zeldaeinstein
Skype: thebaneofdemons (Travis Lockhart)

Maybe the Shoutbox, too, if I ever get my act together :p
