Dear "Windows Live Messenger" Programmers:
I'm using Windows Live Messenger 14.0.8089.726
Recently, there is a bug with MSN server or client, that some of my contacts see me online and some see me offline when I'm actually online. If I switch to use Pidgin messenger in Linux/Ubuntu, there is no such problem.
Not just me, a lot of other people are having the same problem as me. Deleting and re-adding contacts may solve the problem according to them. From the Ubuntu Pidgin messenger, I can see my actually online but apparantly offline friends, "last seen 131 days and 22 hours and XX minutes ago", which is completely ridiculous because he turns on MSN everyday. However, those who are indeed offline or using other messenger don't have such a line of information. I suspect you might have messed up your contact status database because the data information seems to be corrupted.
Please fix the bug as soon as possible! Thanks!
