    I want to have two insant messengers running together with different
    IDs. One sensible version for colleagues eg "Neal at Home" and one
    stupid version for netmates eg "slayer biker dude man" or something.

    Do I have to have two passorts, logins or whatever?

    Or, hopefully, I can had two identities in my profile.

  2. Greetings Neal,

    In order to do this you'll need to have two Passports are two Messenger clients running.

    To open another Passport account, simply visit or make a new
    Hotmail account (

    As for running more than one Messenger client at once, if you're using Windows XP, you can
    somewhat do this now -- since you can use Windows Messenger and MSN Messenger 6.x or 5.x at
    the same time. Otherwise you'll need to use another client (like Trillian -- which can login to the .NET Messenger network separately in addition
    to the Messenger client you already have.

    However, you can also "patch" MSN Messenger so that it will run several times by using a
    unsupported polygamy patch. You can find these on, look in their download
    section (more specifically the 'MSN Messenger Addons, Bots, Tools & Tweaks ' section) for
    'JnrzLoader', 'Nega Patch' and others which can help you with this.
