Those "other" smileys ;)
X-rated/adult smileys are now compatible with v5.5, head to the creators site [http://www.geocities.com/basefaces/] (this is often down due to exceeding bandwidth so do keep trying) or check out [zakie.fsnet.co.uk - X-Rated Smileys] while you're at [www.zakie.fsnet.co.uk] check out [Stop Booters], a ready made filter to use, while it wont stop all your problems it will certainly make life a little easier :)
back to smileys..
check out [Pegasus of Gold Custom Smileys] for more smileys.. all clean and above board, so you don't need to throw yourself over your monitor when your Mum / daughter / son / boss walks in ;) At [Pegasus of Gold] you'll find the std static smileys have been edited to make them animated.. excellent job! You have to love the :P smiley, the cow 3:-o is just the best, the :-& smiley finally give us one that pukes.. woohoo! *-:) was expected but still cute... and I have to say the chicken ~:> is a classic. A BIG double thumbs up for this set! It also saves a lot of confusion if your buddy is using the original set of yahoo std and secret smileys as you'll still be able to see what smiley they were intending to use.. you'll just have the better version of it ;) All I need now is a bourbon smiley and a horses ass and I'll be smiley complete ;)
UPDATE: a new set of smileys is now available at [Pegasus of Gold] and in Set A you'll find an horses bum (the best to say "you're a /stop being such a horses ass") and a bourbon (or drinking) smiley.. woohooo!

speaks the names of the person coming online/going offline so instead of just getting the std yahoo knock/door you now get a wee voice saying "<name> is now online/offline" which is so handy if you're not at your desk and/or struggle to work out who actually came/went.. those of you with a full buddies list will know what I mean :) It also lets you know when a new message window has popped up and who it's from ("new instant message from <name>")

Instant Messenger Spellchecker
"It is fact that many people frequently make spelling mistakes. Especially it concerns quick chatting via such programs, as the Instant Messengers. Think about how many times you noticed that your message has spelling errors immediately after you had sent it. The small spelling mistake may completely change sense of the sentence. Moreover, if you use the Instant Messenger for business correspondence wrong spelling will make a bad impression on your clients or business partners. So, don't be illiterate and let us make your spelling correct!"
