Tim Hibbard CEO for EnGraph software

The Messenger blog talked today about using their protocol handler to initiate IM conversations from an a href or command prompt.

The idea is to use their handler (msnim:) as you would a typical handler like mailto.  I wonder how hard that is to implement.  That would help our clients transition smoother between our .NET and non-.NET applications.  For example, if they had a vehicle loaded in our ParaPlan software and wanted to see where the vehicle had been that day, we could put an a href link that pointed to a handler like gps:today?vehicle=67.

Try it out:
