Was telling Iceman about my "new discovery" and he says it might be due to MessengerPlus!. Frankly, i don’t know. But i did find this setting… Plus – Preferences – Main – Conversations – Enable commands (special messages beginning with "/").
So maybe it’s not MSN after all. Hmm…
This may not be anything special really but i just found out about it so am posting about it here. Heh.
Long time ago, when MIRC was still the rage (that’s my personal assumption that it’s no longer a rage and that MSN has taken over MIRC too), there used to be this function where if i u type "/me", it appears as "MyNick". So for example if i were to type
"/me is going to drink water"
MIRC will display it as "Uptowngal is going to drink water".
I tried the above function on MSN before but it didn’t work. "/me" was just "/me". However, I tried it again just now… and realised it works in the latest Live Messenger version 8.5!
Well, it’s not really a big deal but.. heh. It’s something new i discovered right? Heh.
Oh… but for users who’re using the older version of MSN, the "/me" appears as a <<I on their windows. :/
