Curious if anyone is aware of another program besides gaim that will connect to msn, it appears M$ has now officially pulled the plug on gaim users trying to connect to the network.
I've attempted to use 2 versions in the past half hour with the same problem saying the server does not exist.

Actually it must be just me, even on my friends windows box that is on the same network is having trouble connecting to the msn network.
I figure I'll just wait it out for a while thanks for the replies, didn't know text based msn existed.
