1429067 story MSN Messenger Kickbans Third-Party IM Clients 422 Posted by simoniker on Thursday October 16, 2003 @03:02AM from the turned-up-clocked-on-laid-off dept. No_Weak_Heart writes "As reported here back in August, October 15th is the day Microsoft set to ban third party clients from logging in to their IM service. This eWeek article notes that the day is upon us, and MS is offering few details about its progress in creating licensing agreements to continue access. The licensing issue was previously discussed here. And my copy of Fire cannot log in. Anyone else find their IM clients non-responsive?"
