Change Yahoo! Messenger Default Status Messages With Your Own Customized Messages

Recently I started using WLM and I used to have my own customized status messages in both yahoo! messenger as well as WLM. But I found an annoying thing in Yahoo! messenger. It always forgets our own customized messages at every startup and set "Available" as default. On the other hand WLM always remembers our customized status messages.
So I opened Resource Hacker and started doing R&D with Yahoo! messenger's "Program Files" folder's files. After a few minutes R&D, I found the desired strings in "res_msgr.dll" file.
So here is the complete tutorial to change the default status messages in Yahoo! messenger to our own customized text:
1. Open "%programfiles%\Yahoo!\Messenger\res_msgr.dll" file in Resource Hacker.
2. Go to:
Menu -> 376 -> 2057
and in right-side pane, you can replace the existing status messages with your own desired strings. But remember it'll only change the menu text, which is displayed when we click on "Messenger -> My Status".
3. Now the final thing, to change the original status messages, go to:
String Table -> 695 -> 2057
String Table -> 696 -> 2057
and in right-side pane, change the status messages with your desired text.
Thats it guys. There are lots of other interesting things in this file, which can also be hacked to change the menu/dialog appearance of Yahoo! Messenger.
