Yahoo Messenger not working on Pidgin

Looks like Yahoo made some changes today and broke Yahoo/Pidgin. Here's the fix from CNET
From CNET: "A work-around involved changing your pager server in Pidgin by going to Accounts on the menubar, then selecting Yahoo, and then Edit Account. Under the Advanced tab, changing the Pager Server to 66.163.181.179 and restarting Pidgin would allow for a successful connection."
By the way, the old field for me was scs.msg.yahoo.com, and it should probably be put back when this has been corrected.
