Windows Live Mesh Remote Connection no longer works

Well, I noticed my Live Mesh stopped working for remote connections. Did the software say why? Of course not.

I found this blurb from the jack a$$e$ at Microsoft who just silently killed the whole service. Could you they have sent us an email, notification, something?

"Windows Live Mesh was retired on February 13, 2013, and remote desktop and peer-to-peer syncing have stopped working. If you still have files in your Mesh online storage (called “Mesh synced storage” or “SkyDrive synced storage”) make sure you have copies of them on your computer. On August 13, 2013, all files in Mesh online storage will be permanently deleted."

Awesome,eh?

Time to look for an alternative then.
