This is a first. Yahoo IM is going to go down at midnight tonight for scheduled maintenance.I guess I can’t complain since Yahoo IM is free, but the couple of times Yahoo went down WITHOUT notice over the past couple of years we had some big problems at my last company (VentureReporter.net). It is amazing how quickly you can become dependant on something like IM.
