Add A Status To Microsoft Communicator, Modify MS Communicator Statuses

I recently started using Microsoft Communicator for a contract I am working on and wanted to customize it a bit. One of the things I wanted to be able to change was the status that displayed to other people as the default statuses are fairly generic and in my case I wanted to display if I was on an important meeting, working on a project, or just deep in thought. Below are simple directions that can be used to add customized statuses to Microsoft Communicator instant message client.
