Console based MSN client

by on Nov.04, 2005, under Linux, Software

Earlier today I stumbled across a client for MSN Messenger that runs in a terminal! It’s called tmsnc.

The RPM had some dependencies that I could not solve so I decided to compile from source. Apart from a few minor issues, it looks great! There are some screenshots available here.

You might wonder why you need a text based MSN client; well, one can never have too many tools 🙂

GPLFlash 2

Ok .. built and installed GPLFlash .. at least Firefox thinks it’s installed. Time to give it a try: well .. seems like StarTrek.com still won’t work .. guess it won’t settle for anything less than Flash 6 🙁
