MSN Messenger outage continues
C|Net has the latest on the popular IM client's difficulties
MSN Messenger users started experiencing trouble Tuesday, with the most commonly reported glitches being connection problems and missing buddy lists of friends. Microsoft temporarily took MSN Messenger offline around 3 p.m. PDT Thursday in an attempt to fix the problem. Although the company had partially restored the service in many countries by Friday morning, at 12 p.m. PDT problems still plagued as many as one third of its users.
Hopefully, things will improve for people who rely on this sort of stuff.
