some buddies at work tried to get me to switch to aol but there was no reason to change. in a perfect world i guess they would all be able to talk to each other and we wouldn't be having this discussion. (am est sat jul 22 2000)i have tried icq, aim, msnim, yahoo! you name, i've probably d/led it at one point or another. many more people who i know have icq, so that just makes it easier on me.

odigo's ability to communicate with icq is a nice thing, but it doesn't seem to have a very good interface.

(pm est fri jul 21 2000)it would be their phone, wizard – by grammer all three (pm est fri jul 21 2000)which one i'm using depends on what i'm using it for. on a sidenote, i think some of these im programs should merge (a la odigo) and create something really huge…
