New MSN / Windows Live Messenger have removed the ability to view contact

I have just upgraded to the latest MSN / Windows Live messenger and usually when I do it changes and I can see slight differences but nothing too major that has affected me. But the new one has removed a feature I have been using for years and has annoyed me. Instead of viewing someone’s user name that they choose like MC Big Foot 4 Life or some rubbish like that, I choose to view my contacts by their email address. This  because they can’t change that on their email on MSN, and so I know who they actually are.

But someone at Microsoft has decided to remove the feature, so I now have the choice of viewing my contacts as either MC Big Foot 4 Life or, if they have actually added their name then I can view it as their first name. I have chosen to go the name route, but most people haven’t decided to add their name. This means I still get whatever they’ve chosen to call themselves. You know the people I mean, they are usually the people that change their name twice daily, so I don’t know how I will know who everyone is now!

So yeah other than that it’s pretty much the same. Well I have removed as much of the features to get it to the normal MSN as possible. I will let you look around for any other new features yourself.

  2. Hello! I understand this is somewhat off-topic however I needed to ask.
    Does managing a well-established website like yours take a lot of
    work? I’m completely new to blogging but I do write in my journal on a daily basis. I’d like to start a blog
    so I will be able to share my experience and views online.
    Please let me know if you have any kind of suggestions or tips for new
    aspiring bloggers. Appreciate it!

    and will certainly work. Still, the posts are too short for novices.
    Could you please lengthen them a little from next time?

  5. Yesterday, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iPad and tested to see if it can survive a 30 foot
    drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation.
    My apple ipad is now destroyed and she has 83 views.

    I know this is totally off topic but I had to share it with someone!

  12. At this time it sounds like Expression Engine is the best blogging platform out there right now.
    (from what I’ve read) Is that what you’re using on your blog?

  13. First of all I would like to say great blog! I had a quick
    question that I’d like to ask if you do not mind. I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your head prior to writing. I have had a hard time clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out there. I truly do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or tips? Cheers!

  14. Black ladies are extremely unique and, they are a very different breed of females.
    There are numerous stereotypes related to black girls and, you will find the
    girls really amazing. Black girls have a dark skin and,
    they are known for their nature of being aggressive.
    It is very interesting how black women tend to stimulate interest and argument.
    The girls can be found in all parts of the world and, the most popular black ladies are African Americans.

    African women are understood to be simple and really calm.
    Since they have comparable functions, it often ends up being extremely challenging to tell the ladies
    apart physically. African American women are children of previous slaves who were generated from Africa, several years ago.

    They have a long history of struggle and last triumph.
    The black community in America has needed to combat numerous battles simply to be heard.
