So it appears that Wildman's Yahoo! server is back up ("four" the fourth time, eh?)

UPDATE:

@Wildman_Fujiami needed some help on authentication, and since I had decided to help in that regard, he has now officially made his Yahoo! server public and even made a little site for it where you can register an account rather than make one up. This does, however, mean that old accounts that were created with the “register on the client” scheme are now invalidated, now that proper authentication has been set up.

Read Wildman’s thread on this update if you’re interested: PSA: Notice on update to Yahoo! server.

everyone can go back and start using Yahoo! again (for now, assuming Wildman doesn’t find out and shut it down again). :stuck_out_tongue:

This time, since the server’s reboot, it doesn’t seem that old accounts are trashed, so you can still add me under fl33t, and as I’ve said time and time again, I won’t be using that buggy mess of a server often, however, so don’t expect me on there every day or so. :stuck_out_tongue:

Here’s one of the Yahoo! 6.0 builds I could find: http://www.oldversion.com/windows/yahoo-messenger-6-0-0-1671.

Enjoy! :stuck_out_tongue:

Also, here’s some patching instructions, if you’re not in the know:

I never even got that server to send messages properly, but I might try and sign in again.

I tried messaging myself, and it’s flawless atm. :smile:

LOL It looks like the server came back up again according to @WindowsXPCat2008, eh? :stuck_out_tongue:

Now I go by fl33t, so add me or something. :stuck_out_tongue:

Eh, it’s for anyone who’s even still interested in that thing. :stuck_out_tongue:

So do we still connect to the server the same old way with the same version? I might try using it again.

Same old same old. :stuck_out_tongue:

Just know that with each reboot, I notice that old accounts are trashed, so you’d better create a new ID.


Oof

Will look into that later on.

Aaaaand it looks like @Wildman_Fujiami caught onto us and had shut down the Yahoo! server. Again.

Still not worried, though. I just wonder when the next reopening/shutdown period will occur. :stuck_out_tongue:
