8/23    Google IM is up.
        \_ Great. Just what we need. Yet Another Fucking Messenger. I am so
           sick and tired of having to keep track of different logins and
           clients. I have YM, AIM, MSN, and IRC. Trillian is the solution?
           No. I can't get to certain features in YM like interactive games
           and Audibles. Fuck Google.
           \_ You might not know this, but you are too stupid to live.
           \_ I used to use AIM.  Now I don't even bother logging on.  If it's
              urgent, call me.  If it's not urgent, send me e-mail.
        \_ Holy fucking shit.  A branded Jabber server with no SSL support.
           Where are my smelling salts?  What will they think of next?!
        \_ Great, only socks proxy.  Woo.  That's sad.  -John

4/21    Yahoo Instant Messenger is not encrypted. Are there chat programs
        that are a bit more secure than YIM?
        \_ what OS are you using?
        \_ What are your goals? Corporate security, or preventing your wife
           from eavesdropping on you? If you're using IM for internal company
           communication, you shouldn't be using anything where you don't

10/9    Is there a chat program for OS X that allows me to chat with
        people on AIM, MSN messenger, and yahoo? Thanks.
        \_ Adium.
           \_ Adium is best. Trillian Astra works as web client and
              they are porting as a native app as well but i still
              like adium more than astra -shac

6/15    In YM, AIM, G Chat, and other programs... are they smart enough to
        do point-to-point, intranet to intranet communication when they are
        close (same subnet, domain, etc) to each other? Or do they all go
        to a centralized server?
        \_ It all goes to Mother Brain Chat Server Central.
           If you are concerned about this, either install your own

11/10   Which chat program is the most popular these days?  AOL IM?  Yahoo
        Messenger?  ICQ?  I'm trying to sign up for one.  Thx.
        \_ AIM in USA, MSN for rest of the world.  Don't bother with ICQ,
           as the protocol is merging with AIM anyway.  If I were you, I
           get account in both AIM and MSN and use GAIM/Adium/Trillian as

9/1     I hate Yahoo. After being pushed persistently by their GUI to
        upgrade to YM7, and answering questions that ask me if I'm SURE
        that I don't want to install their tool bar and use their site
        as the default search engine, YM7 installer still installed a
        stupid Yahoo toolbar. Yahoo is getting more and more annoying
        like AOL and Netscape used to be. I hate Yahoo, I'll never

12/21   Does anyone know the name/singer of that song in Elf, when
        Will Ferrell sneaks in on that girl while she showers and
        sings along with her? thanks.
        \_ baby, it's cold outside.  zooey deschanel
        \_ I thought Elf was a poorly written movie.
           \_ She's gonna be Trillian?

9/26    Now that Yahoo is clamping down on use of their IM protocol by outside
        clients, I'm wondering if there is an effort to create an interoperable
        open-source instant messenger protocol/service?
        \_ You mean like IRC, ICB, or Jabber?
           \_ Yup, thanks. :)
        \_ URL?  Does this mean Trillian will not work any more?

GAIM on Windows/Linux, or Adium on the Mac: -- For iChat, just enter the information above. Another user reports the following: "weird, I've never sent you email from my gmail, and now that you're on m y buddy list on google talk, it autofilled your email address, and alias on my gmail" -- The "/me" command works too, even on iChat. "/me says hi" translates t o "smash says hi" or whatever if you're not familiar! Feel free to IM around with fellow GMail users just by adding their addre sses to your list! I'm not sure how long this is going to work, but let' s make the best of it. UPDATE: I'm online right now, give me a hollar if you're able to login!
