Today I made the mistake of updating Yahoo!Messenger. While v7 seems to work quite nicely, it removes the “follow this chatter” feature that has been so useful to me. And with that my research capabilities ground to a halt. The reason is that without that feature, I can’t track a bots movement through different rooms.

Thankfully, after a bit of googling, I came up with:

Old Version collects and archives previous versions of popular public software products. And within minutes I was able to download the version of Messenger that I’ve been using.

So should you, in the course of your research, come up with need to track down a previous software version, I’d start your search at Old Version.
