Why does the Yahoo! Pager thing installed on my web page tell me that I'm not online right now when I quite blatantly am. Messenger is working - I was chatting to _jamez_ only moments ago.

And why DOES it have two names? I got used to it under the name "pager" but it seems they now want us to call it "messenger".

When I used to use it ages ago (possibly years ago :) it was "Yahoo! Messenger", and it was just towards the end of my time using it that they introduced (rubbish) file sending.

It has always been called Yahoo Messenger, as far as I know. I've had it for about 2 years, and it has always been "Yahoo! Messenger". Everybody I know except you and Ang calls it "YM" in general conversation.

I caught the Pager habit from max.

I tend to call it "That little beepy window"

when Yahoo! first introduced their IM software, it was called Yahoo!Pager. this was at least 4 or 5 years ago. a couple of years after introduction, they had added a ton of new features and changed the name to Yahoo!Messenger.
