Instant Messenger Idea


Thought it might be cool to share Instant Messenger screen names so we could all IM each other. Think that's a good idea? Maybe not post it here, but we could email them. I know AOL and MSN talk to each other. I assume Yahoo does as well. I KNOW Nigel and I like the idea. We've been chatting about the rest of you!! ;-)


What's everyone think?

I'd probably be up for that... I'll put Trillian back on my computer here at work, that way what ever you use, you can reach me (ICQ, Yahoo, MSN, AOL). my IM screen name is the same as it is here and if anyone has gmail and wants to chat within gmail, I cna do that as well

Petra - You can get Adium for a Mac - it works with all of the instant messaging programs. - That's what I use - I use Jabber with my office and AIM with my vendors. All from the Adium interface.

Maddy - I got you and lost you! AIM crashed and now I've got Adium so I'm all set - at least for the next 30 minutes or so before bedtime..

I have the gmail chat all set up (when in gmail you can see others and whether they are on or not). I will need to install AIM and get a new screen name...hmmm what should I use? :-P

I have Skype, which is really cool. You can also use a headset and talk over the computer. I also have MSN and AIM installed because my kids use them. I'll get a screen name set up on one of them and email it.
