change status message in yahoo messenger

Visual Basic 6, or VB Classic

it changes the status message in yahoo messenger. i know there are many such already present on psc, but i found them difficult to interpret (personal opinion no offence) and hence coded something myself which easiest for me and less code. any comments/suggestions/complaints are welcome!
