    I wish they would make ONE instant messenger program. If I wanted to talk to all my e-friends I'd be running MSN, AOL, ICQ, Yahoo, etc....

    Let's all stick to ICQ if possible. If you need help using it just ask here and I am sure I can help ya.

    I'm currently on AOL (still waiting on my cable provider to get their ISP up :( ). My screen name is TomB11061. Post me a message sometime when I'm online, and I'd be happy to try and talk you through the ICQ process, though I have to admit I'm pretty new at it too. I'll put you on my Buddy list - you do the same with me and we'll try to get together that way.

    Ok... let's all start using AOL IM then. :)

    I'll download it later and see what I can do with it.

    I know. I hate it. But it came free with my computer for 3 months, so I thought 'What the Hell'. My cable provider promised their ISP would be online by mid-January, but it's no luck so far, and now I'll have to start PAYING for the AOL access. My phone lines (apparently) are too old for most of the other dial-in ISP's, and I'm not putting in a new phone line until I've given up on the cable thing altogether, so it looks like I'm stuck with it for now.


    Oh, and Wizard2000? I just thought I might be able to help him get his ICQ working, and I don't think having multiple ways to get a hold of one another is a bad thing.

    Wizard: If you like Microsoft (and MSN) you can blame AOL for a part of that "non compatible" messaging. MSN tried to hook into AOL's system but they said no way... probably because they have most of the market right now.

    All I know is that I have a cable modem and I can use IM fine. I just went to and downloaded the messenger program. My dad has this michnet program and it seems to workfine on his. Thanks tomb, cant wait to talk to ya. I am so comper illiterate, i cant even get ICQ to work :)

    Just mess around with it. eventually you'll figure it out.

    Well, since this conversation is going, I just wanted to know who out there does have ICQ. I'm an ICQ user, (#21650041) and I just wanted to know how many other magic players are too.

    My ICQ is 6268181 (and now, I didn't skip one number.. it just shows that I've been on ICQ for a looooooong time ;) ) ... I once talked to a person with ICQ number 3!!!
  13. TomB Administrative Assistant

    Bathtubs? :D

    My ICQ number is 60577320. I'm usually not on until after midnight, Chicago time, so I'm sometimes hard to get a hold of. I'd be happy to add any of you to my contact list though, so if you're up late give me a holler.
