I've written a MSN Messenger bot for Nagios from the ground up. It's 
written in Perl, naturally :-)

It  uses the Nagios contacts to work out who is "subscribed" to MSN 
Messenger alerts. It currently implements the MSNP9 protocol and to be 
honest, will probably stay that way until MSN drop support for it. More 
recent versions of the Messenger protocol use SOAP and last time I 
looked the documentation wasn't great on how to implement it.

I'd consider my work alpha at the moment as it does have a few 
problems and the code isn't very clean. It was more of a proof of 
concept.. but it does work :-)

When I get 5 minutes, I'll make what I've done so far available in case 
anyone wants to carry it on or make any improvements (lots of 
improvements to be had!).
