    Whats Trillian?

    I use MSN, AIM + ICQ in that order although I find the transfering files option better on AIM.

    Sounds like it'd be right up your alley mate.

    www.trillian.cc

    Been using it for about a year, would never go back to any other IM client now.

    i use msn cos everyone else i know uses it, i used trillian for a while but there was no point really. MSN is pretty shit.. file transfers are a pain and voice conversations are shit :( The new checkers & tic tac toe games are cool though

    I don't suppose you'd know how the hacker did his thing?

    I've been thinking about downloading MSN again for hime use, but I hate how every time I log into Hotmail, it comes up in the system tray.

    Having said that, I voted MSN, although I can just italicize/bold words (as opposed to the whole message) in AIM.

    I thought my line about bolding/italicizing words (as opposed to whole messages) would make me sound like a pedant.

    It probably still does but at least I'm not alone. :D

    MSN is the best, besides the fact that I'm on there :rosie: , it looks so much better and is so much easier to use than the other msging programmes. AIM looks too plain and hardly anyone uses it. Yahoo has good webcam facilities and the doodle thing which I force Mike and Stu into but no-one else goes on there!!
