I have the new MSN 7 and have the handwriting button (yay!)
But...

It doens't work it keeps saying..:
If you are unable to use the Handwrite tab in the conversation window, you will need to install the following software to activate it:

Microsoft Windows XP or Windows 2000 (with Service Pack 3 or later). If you are not sure your operating system is up-to-date, go to the Microsoft Windows Update website.
Microsoft Windows Journal Viewer 1.5.
Security Update for Windows Journal Viewer.

And i click the updates page thing, and i have all the updates, it says there's no more for me to download...

Anyone can help me? ubbangel confused

i don't know, keeps doing it to me too frown

We are the music makers, We are the dreamers of dreams,
Wandering by lone sea-breakers, And sitting by desolate streams;
World-losers and world-forsakers, On whom the pale moon gleams;
We are the movers and shakers of the world for ever, it seems.

Omg msn is so annoying me now, every time I right click and try to look at profiles of everyone on my list I am automaticly sent to THIS site https://spaces.msn.com/

My space HOME! I didnt ASK to go to MY SPACE HOME, I to go to someones PROFILE. I now cannot figure out who is who on my msn list.

I also have the handwrite tool button that does nothing.
I learnt to ignore it.

THREAD HIJACK!

Seeing as Alice's query has been solved, I was wondering if anyone knows of a multi-access client (proteus, Gaim etc) which allows webcam support to the native clients (eg to msn, AIM, yahoo etc?). Whilst I like the idea of the multi network open source beasties, I do like the webcam, scribble and other functions (for example the added functionality of MSN plus within MSN). Do any one the multiple clients support some/ any of this?

The Gaim team are working on it I think - but it's a little way off. It's a shame because I like Gaim so much frown

However, I think Trillian can do it. I don't really like it all that much, but it does quite a lot, so it might be worth a try...

Let us know what you find though - it's a good question that i'm sure other will want to know...

It's like when you can choose your own to go with your chips from a selection at the restaurant; brown, tomato, tartar, I think Mayonaisse counts too but I'm not sure. In Indian restaurants they give you four on a twirly wirly but one of them is minging so you should stay away from it unless you want to taint the flavour of your whole meal for the sake of starter popodoms.

Let's relight this forum ubblove

Just a random note... I think that language is Danish!

What if I should fall right through the centre of the Earth and come out the other side where people walk upside-down?!
