    Does anyone have the same problem as I do?
    I can't seem to be able to log into my MSN nor load the hotmail web page.

    they took it down to conspire with Valve... hotmail/MSN messenger will be back up when HL2 is released.

    I can't yet explain why, but my minions and I are researching as we speak...

    In the future - open MSN Messenger, click on help and the Service Status - it will tell you if anything is down on their end:

    It currently says:

    Service Status
    This page will be updated when information becomes available.

    .NET Messenger Service Sign In
    The .NET Messenger Service is temporarily experiencing difficulty. You may be unable to sign in. Please try again later.
    Last Update: 3/12/2004 12:38:00 PM Pacific Time (GMT -8:00)


    .NET Voice Service
    All systems are stable and running.

    And your point is???? If you read it, it says NET Messenger Service is down and NET Voice Service is running!

    If you can tell it is down when you can't sign in - then why bother to ask here if anyone else has the problem??? :confused:

    Was asking whether both were down since you can't exactly check the hotmail status using your method.

    Maybe I am confused - in the past whenever .NET Messenger was down - I lost both services!

    Duno about you then coz I used to be able to log into MSN when hotmail was down. This hasn't happened to me for ages.
    Maybe they've merged the two services together onto one server now.

    Indeed, I didn't know a security patch was available (didn't see anything about it here, strange...) ... I went to download MSN 6.1 again to see if the build number had actually been updated or not, and yes I went from 6.1.0207 to 6.1.0211 :)

    Does anyone know when this update was first available ?
