Set­backs

I won’t say these are set­backs but points to be not­ed

Skype is not yet includ­ed. It is not a set­back but if it includes skype it will be com­plete IM and Social solu­tion.

The chat win­dow shows a small ad, It won’t dis­turb the user and if user feels it is annoy­ing then can be set off from the pref­er­ence win­dow. But I left it there because it sup­ports digs­by to cov­er their expens­es. A small token of thanks to their work.
