IM Control: LiveSide posts non-Mesh news; world does not end

If we didn’t know better, we’d say our friend Angus Logan was jealous.  Wants us to change our name, even.  Apparently in a blatant attempt to get his name back on LiveSide, he posted on some cool improvements to the Messenger IM control – that’s the one that allows you to put a “chat box” on your website and have conversations with your readers.  The improvements now allow you get an idea of where an IM message coming from your IM control is coming from, with a default “inviterDisplayName” parameter.


Colin Brown (Hackersoft) has written some helpful how-to articles for us on setting up the IM control, and even how to use it to create a Help Desk application for your site:
