    Recent msn change

    Not sure when this came into effect but it must have been rather recent.

    Before if you were signed in on multiple machines you'd get signed out on the other. I believe it's for closed networks not sure if this still happens over WAN.

    I hardly remember to log into MSN anyway. I always log myself out whenever im leaving, I see no need of having the ability to stay logged in.

    Of course it's like that now. I had this virus thing that signed into my account, which kicked me off, then sent spam messages/ads to all my friends...

    It's not a great security method to be honest, if anything it's giving bots/virus's more power.

    I think they should make it so that if you're signed in, nobody else can sign in on your account.

    That wouldn't really work. There are lots of times I will use another computer I have ( Two hours away from home) and forget to sign out. If I get home without signing out, well, then I wouldn't be able to get on at all.

    Re: Recent msn change

    I noticed this when I signed in on the laptop after forgetting to log out on my computer. It does give you the option to sign out from one, even if you're on the other. It says:



    Away
    Busy
    Appear offline
    ___________
    Sign out from (Adam's computer)
    Sign out from here (Laptop)
    ___________
    Options
    etc.
