Hello. I am an IM addict.
I got hooked on Netscape's version of insant messenger as soon as they released it. Later, I migrated to AOL's IM. I also did ICQ for a while. And when everybody else went over to the dark side, I installed MSN Messenger as well.
I did toy around with Windows NetMeeting for a while, but always found it too cumbersome and the complicated installation freaked out most of my friends. So I abandoned it.
Now, a new era is beginning. iChat AV. This stuff simply works. I just got off the 'phone' with a friend. In Amman, Jordan!
Way cool, I tell ya, way cool.
