Had enough of yahoo can't do msn haven't used ICQ for 5 years.

Is the lite version ne good? Is it stuffed full of crapware?

Good bad views on ICQ please. (I C U)

Thanks in advance.
 
I haven't used ICQ in ages, since before AOL took it over
 
The lite version is quite good.. I can't remember if it just has text ads, but generally its less bloated than its bigger brother from the experience of an ICQ 2003 user

If you really want a multi-connect tool though you might want to try Trillian or Miranda.. both of which connect to multi networks and miranda in particular has lots of plugins.

URL is http://miranda-im.org/release/download.php for Miranda

URL is http://trillian.downloads-software.net/ for Trillian
 
I'm still using it.. but reverted back to the 2002b version as I believe it's much better than the newer ones.
I can't see anything wrong with it, can send offline messages and sms depending on which country you're sending it to.

I do silly errors as a show of how long since I last used it, which I think was 1998. Thanks for the reminder.

Acronyms spell out words, example, s.o.c.c.e.r. aka soccer aka football.
Thanks for the response, I decided to retry I.C.Q. as in UK we can't use MSN,
A.I.M. I don't like, Yahoo chat is full of the biggest ***kers this planet ever created and as for the bot's I think you have given me some good reasons to use I.C.Q. from now on. :)

I think that was the last time I used it. It's an Israeli creation I think. will have to read up more on it. Thanks MING.
 
I've used all the IM systems (I think) for various reasons and have to say ICQ seems more or less par for the course - it certainly does not open a floodgate for porn bots and spam merchants per se. The usual common sense will influence its operation and more to the point it does its job fine for what it is aiming to do - have to say optimal solution seems to be to combine with Miranda or Trillian (I use Miranda personally).

Yes I think ICQ had origins in Israel and it certainly was in existence from very earliest Internet take up.
 
1988 or maybe you meant 1998 ?

I would like to know how you used ICQ 8 years before windows 95?

maybe I missed something eh !

Yes, Mirabilis was based in Israel until the June 8, 1998 buyout by AOL.

Yeah saw silly error and corrected tyvm for dumbing me:p
 
AOL is leaving a mess by taking over from Mirabilis. Don't like the new version of ICQ. Press close and it just sits in the system tray.
 
I think in the options you can change that I mean MSN does that same thing also by default.

I have always like ICQ for large files because it can resume them from your buddies if it fails for whatever reason

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?
