hi, am using mac os, so the best msn i found is amsn. but their is something i liked from other program on the windows. it called MSN discovery or something like this, and it have an option to notify you when someone is appearing offline. i tried it and it works, not all the time and not with many ppl. can someone make a plugin like it.
I suppose you can display those who appear as offline with chosen colour in the contact list. I found a key called <contact_appearoff>
from my settings.xml -file. I haven't tested it because I don't really care if someone appears as offline to me, to be honest.
