 MSN Messenger application monitor
MSN Messenger application monitor

About a month ago we posted about a method on showing two extra icons in your Personal. Status Message. Until now these icons were of no use, so we’ve created a example on how you could make them useful, allowing you to automatically change your Personal Status Message when you are playing a game or when you have to write an important essay. Too bad some people had to compile and publish it elsewhere (without even trying to erase their tracks), not understanding it was a memory-eating monster.

personal status message icons


Seeing that this application could actually be useful we’ve made the über memory-friendly MSN Messenger Application Monitor. By just entering the executable name, choosing the icon and entering a message description, your Personal Status Message will change whenever you launch that specific application.

If you know a game or other application that should be on the feature prefab list please post it here.

>> Download MSN Messenger application monitor.

>> Get the sample source (don't use the application monitoring part of this one, it will kill your memory... seriously).

>> Submit your own list and we might add it to the default list.

mess with texasOne of the coolest online t-shirt stores, Threadless, has a couple of new designs available. As usual, I pre-made MSN Display Pictures out of my favorite ones so you can use them in MSN Messenger and maybe even wear them in real life on your t-shirt.

The moment after I post this, I'm going to order the Mess with Texas one (of course I am!) and the DIY lifehacker in me loves the What Would MacGyver Do? tee. You know, you have to be quick because cool prints like these run out of stock fast!

 MSN connects people who face long-term and terminal illness
MSN connects people who face long-term and terminal illness

dwergs says ( 27 Jun 2005 ):

 

Rosetta Requiem is an online cycle of films and songs made in collaborations between people living with terminal illness and established film makers and composers. Musician Jarvis "Pulp" Cocker, rapper Roots Manuva, composer Michael Nyman and actress Emily Young are amongst those who have given up their time to work in hospices and help people in palliative care to use artistic expression to share their hopes and fears at a time when words are simply not enough.

From July and running throughout the year, the Rosetta Requiem will showcase performances and live webcasts connecting people of all ages isolated by illness. Microsoft's MSN department and Logitech are engineering online video and audio links between hospices in the UK and Africa as an exemplary model for the latest version of MSN Messenger. The first live webcast on July 6 will link London primary school children, Great Ormond Street Hospital and a South African children's hospice in a performance of their songs.
