 Updated: SDBA Revolution Instant Messaging Application Server
Updated: SDBA Revolution Instant Messaging Application Server

dwergs says ( 07 Nov 2003 ):

 

Heads up, chatbot enthusiasts: SDBA Revolution Instant Messaging Application Server is an open-source server written in Perl by Duncan Lamb to provide an architecture to simplify and streamline the process of writing applications that run on an Instant Messaging network. Basically, it makes writing chatbots as easy as writing PHP or Perl.

A new version was released two days ago. It includes a new MSN.pm library interoperable with the latest MSN protocol. The documentation has also been updated with required libraries and links (Time::HiRes, SSL support) to support the new protocol.

Point your browser to its homepage for more info or to download.

Here's the two first winners of a paid .TK domain name (no ads, no requirements & registered for 2 years), as a reward for linking to Mess.be using the codes provided:

- Huuf's Little Place: Huuf is known for several MSN addons like Display Picture Status and Adder. Although you have to take the "little" from his site title literally, he managed to send a remarkable amount of hits this way;

- Narcotic Brocolli: This daily updated blog by 17 year old Colin caught my attention immediately, but it's the link to Mess.be under "Cool Stuff" earned him a free 2 year registration of his domain.

Keep linking to Mess.be because there's still things left to win for just adding some code to your pages!



 MSN Messenger for KDE
MSN Messenger for KDE

dwergs says ( 06 Nov 2003 ):

 

KDE is an Open Source graphical desktop environment for Unix workstations. Lately KDE-based MSN Messenger clients have been upgraded to work with MSNP9, the mandatory protocol update. To name some examples: Kopete 0.8b1 (more info) and KMess v1.3 (more info). Let me repeat that these do not work with Windows.

Updated: Futuristic MSN 6.1.0155

dwergs says ( 05 Nov 2003 ):

 

Although the first week of Futuristic MSN has been very successful, some users complained about a few bugs in this full makeover for MSN Messenger 6.1.0155. Since Rolando thought the skin could use some changes as well he redid it completely. Updates:

- Skinned the MSN main window.
- Fixed webcam image bug.
- Made some changes to the images in the 'I want to...' list.
- Fixed the MSN logo on the right top corner of the conversation window.
- Patched it with polygamy and ad remover.

Download the new Futuristic MSN here. And according to Rolando you can expect a remake of MSN Messed Edition soon! :D

"Hi. I'm Tom. I got bored one night so I fired up Photoshop and made some emoticons of myself. Thanks for letting me spread...well, myself!"

You can see the result of Tom's metamorphosis to MSN emoticons here.

Turn yourself into emoticons (crying, smiling, winking and the rest of the emotions) and upload them just like Tom! The best series will be featured on Mess.be!

 Email Hoax: Hotmail isn't offering active users free Extra Storage, Block Checker, etc.
Email Hoax: Hotmail <b>isn't</b> offering active users free Extra Storage, Block Checker, etc.

dwergs says ( 03 Nov 2003 ):

 

Laser_iCE has just sent me an email that claims to give you extra space, a larger contact list (500 contacts), the ability to see who's blocked you and MSN polygamy if you forward the message to enough friends. Be warned Messers that this email is a fake and shouldn't be taken seriously. It links to the Extra Storage page which may make it look real, but it's not. This is another chain letter (including the usual spelling mistakes) which Microsoft has always disapproved. Official MSN statements can be recognised by the butterfly icon in front of the email in your inbox. Conclusion: do NOT forward this one, because nothing will happen.

Don't Mess with a Jumbo Shopping Bag

dwergs says ( 02 Nov 2003 ):

 

Meet Oliver Cannings, Jack 'Willis' Butcher, Kyle Holloway, Steve 'American' Barusch & Oli King. Except for Oliver (co-founder of Itselephants), those names probably won't ring a bell, but they're the crew behind Self Inflicted, your next-door Jackass gang making the streets of Swindon (Wiltshire) unsafe with skateboards, unicycles and Jumbo shopping bags. They created a short teaser video especially for Mess.be as an invitation to visit their homepage sivideos.com.

>> Watch the teaser video (Windows Media file)

>> Visit sivideos.com for full length stunts

We absolutely love crazy stuff like this so if you create your own homevideos and want to make a Mess.be promo, just send it over to submit [] mess.be (replace [] with @). Same goes for impressive Mess-themed wallpapers, Flash movies, songs, fan pics (more of which will be added soon) and the like. Surprise us!
