I'm thinking of installing AIM or ICQ to chat with my son but don't know which one to go with so I' asking for recommendations. I have NIS 2003 installed will this be a problem with either program.? Thanks! H.F.
I'd say MSN. ICQ's too bloated, IRC isn't that good for just talking to one person. as for yahoo and aim, i dont use them, so i can't judge them.
MSN's nice and easy to use and you can use voice/webcam's too.
That should be good, I wouldnt have to install AIM to chat to people on there
Personally I wish there was a single client that could do all of them, so If you had a MSN account then you could also chat to people on ICQ, MSN, AIM and Yahoo! IM. And I dont mean something like trillian
Thanks for all the suggestions! I decided to try ICQ Lite for now. I'm going to try some of the other programs after I get familiar with instant messaging. I was going to try Yahoo Messenger but the web page said the voice chat wouldn't work through a fire wall. Will voice chat in MSN Messenger work through a fire wall (NIS 2003)?
Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
