Don't you just hate it when kiddies on your contact list start flooding you to catch your attention or simply to annoy you? Jerry's Anti Scroller 1.0 detects text floods, blocks them and return a message to the attacker. Download it here.



 MSN Helper
MSN Helper

MSN Helper 1.20 was released a week ago and is now featured on mess.be. Reminds me a bit of Messenger Plus! (quicktext, auto-message, logging -with security password!), but it adds personal profiling and compatibility with Microsoft Agents & Text-to-Speech) on top of that. People who feel very funky can always download a Chinese version @ www.msnhelper.com, but I'd suggest you download the English one here.

Some people might have noticed what happened to the forum today. Indeed, we were "hacked" by nobody else than asdfuae. I'm sure everybody knows him as the person who makes brilliant polygamy patches. Well, he was kind enough to track down our weak spots and helped us at making a more secure forum. Big up for asdfuae.



 Intellibot 5.0
Intellibot 5.0

Intellibot 5.0 by Silverspeed allows you to make your own chatterbots which answer automatically to the trigger words of your choice. Samples for a hangman game and a magic 8 ball script are included. Programmers can even add their own functions using VBScript or DLL files. So, like Intellibot's very own motto says: "Make botz, bot war" and start by downloading it here.

You can submit any 24/7 bots for evaluation and addition to the Bots Must Be Crazy catalogue. Permanently online bots ONLY.

After the success of the World Cup Alerts for Belgian MSN Messenger users, Canal+ Belgium is working on an extended version of this service. There will be 5 categories to choose from: movies, sports, a Canal+ TV guide, music and competitions. Subjects include sports results on tennis (eg. Kim Clijsters), football, box-office, latest music releases, etc. There's not a lot of information available yet, but I think the alerts will be Dutch and French only. Anyway, preview the new MyCanal homepage here!

It's time to add some original emotions to your MSN Messenger experience. Dreamingweb, a real gfx pro, has released a selection of MSN Messenger emoticons that change the dull default ones into something much more exciting.

And even more to come!!

UPDATE: The! Forum! Is! Back!

Previously, on Mess.be:
After our last forum host closed it down, I've been kindly offered to host the popular community board at BBNET. The bad news: the userbase AND the message archives are all back to zero (because of a rare backup bug in the forum software). The good news: now we can start with a clean, shiny and much improved forum. Here's some of the new features:

- different skins/templates (the classic orange theme is still available for people who don't care about their eyesight);
- your chance to start earning and donating Mess Mojo;
- there's a little chat room exclusively for forum members;
- interesting general and individual stats and history, to keep track of how addicted you are to the forums;
- plus more, go find out yourself!

- http://www.mess.be/forums (easy-to-remember shortcut #1)
- http://mess.be/forums (even easier-to-remember shortcut #2)
- http://64.191.13.210/~bbnet_us/messforums/index.php (direct link)

Thanks to Rob for all the hard work he did on the setup and design. And finally, here's a message from our new Forum host: "BBNET, hosting, design, e-mail, banners, forums, game department, software development, a community with friendly people who talk in general, about games, and much more. And a never-before-seen customer care center taking care of the needs of customers every day. BBNET, less than perfect is unacceptable! www.bbnet.us."

dwergs says ( 31 Jul 2002 ):

 

It's all clear to me now: the mess.be forums are doomed! The DNS server is down which makes the forum site unavailable to the public. Problems are expected to be solved by tomorrow, after we perform 666 minutes of exorcism with the Forum Admin team.



 Closing MSN Messenger With NAV2003
Closing MSN Messenger With NAV2003

Nicholas says ( 28 Jul 2002 ):

 

For those of you that are having problems shutting down MSN Messenger and are running Norton AntiVirus 2003, make sure you disable Norton first. It's prevents you from closing Messenger due to Norton's plugin that scans incoming file transfers for viruses. Or alternatively, you can close Messenger from the task manager.
