Beware the Ides of March RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Hi,

    FYI:

    Some have a tough time w/ change & acting accordingly in a timely manner when change does come.  So fair warning... the only date I have been able to find is March 15th for Messenger ending.  It is being replaced by Skype.  Right now, installing Skype & signing in to it w/ a Microsoft Acc't lets both Messenger Contacts & Skype Contacts be listed.  You might consider switching over to Skype before the 11th hour.

    There is a Skype APP in the MS Store.  There is, also, still, Skype for Windows (Desktop) found @ www.skype.com

    Cheers,
    Drew

    I’m more fearful of being stabbed on the streets of London than Messenger disappearing.

  • Me thinks thou dost taketh the pun too literally.  Be not filled w/ trepidation, Grasshopper, even in the streets of London.
