Sweet. Add me back to your lists and I shall add you, those of you I've deleted to make room! ;)

Last night, we put the finishing touches on an upgrade to the server-side of MSN Messenger. The maximum size of a buddy list has been increased from 150 to 300. Enjoy. [From Dare]

Thats neat, but what MSN messenger really really needs is - ability to specify that

Alert me when this particular contact comes online - and ignore the rest.

Seriously, that is SO needed.

Try the Messenger Plus! add-on. It has the custom notification feature you are looking for and a whole lot more.
