I'm Online!

Finally the Yahoo mystery got solved!

Apparently, if you just click the "X" on the top right corner of the Yahoo messenger, and don't actually "Sign Out", it continues to show you as "Online"... even if you have checked the box in the "Settings" that says "Sign out of messenger when I close the main window"!

And I had been wondering about those off-liners waiting for me in the morning... especially the ones that went like - "How come u r online at this time?" To be honest, I had actually begun to think people around me were going mad... that they could see me online when both my computer and I were happily floating away in our respective "dreamlands"!

Huhhhh! How stupid really? Why give the setting if it doesn't work the way it says it does!
