12-13-02, 10:51 PM
I use MSN only. What about everyone else?
12-13-02, 10:52 PM
AIM at home, work, and on my phone.

Used to be a loyal ICQ user, but the anoymous IM from some advertiser and some weirdos got to me. Changed to AIM!! Have not had any of the problem so far. Very satisfied... :)

used to be a hardcore ICQ user, but I've been using MSN ever since it became big for about 2 years.
AOL IM and ICQ...use it all with Trillian mostly...I do have a yahoo ID, but never use it.
12-13-02, 11:53 PM
Trillian... (covering MSN, AOL, some ICQ)
12-13-02, 11:56 PM
Trillian (AOL, MSN, ICQ, but everyone I talk to is on AOL except one)

Wish I had heard about Trillian sooner...woulda saved me some trouble having all these IM programs loaded up at once. :) (I primarily use AOL & MSN but hardly Yahoo or ICQ since no one contacts me on those.)
Used to use only ICQ for the longest time. I guess I was one of the first ones cus I had a very low ID number. I was so pissed when some punk somehow hacked my account to obtain my ID for himself. Stopped using ICQ since.
Now I use Yahoo and MSN.

Nothing. They're annoy.
12-14-02, 12:24 AM
In order of most use...
AIM, Yahoo, MSN, ICQ.
and I haven't touched MSN or ICQ in the calendar year of 2002.

Here's something that reflects Internet culture today.. I'm easier to get a hold of over AIM than I am over most any other method. Having a "wireless solution" that is on AIM, can retrieve email, and accept phone calls 24/7 has left me with no place to hide.. if you don't get a response from me, most likely I'm trying to ignore you. ;)

Definitely Trillian - gives you everything at once.
12-14-02, 01:23 AM
At the moment I just use AIM but I've been thinking about giving Trillian another try.
12-14-02, 01:36 AM
I have all 4 connected through Trillian.
12-14-02, 02:30 AM
AIM, MSN, ICQ and Yahoo via Trillian (mainly use the first two though)>
12-14-02, 02:32 AM
All of them via Trillian. I have to be available to all my peeps in DTSL. :)
12-14-02, 02:45 AM
none although I do have a yahoo account.

I just d/led trillian right now. Tryin to figure it out, but the most part I've gotten it. Just need to get use to it.
12-14-02, 09:42 AM
Trillian for everything now. I was previously an ICQ user since 1996.

Trillian is truly the greatest messenger service ever. Having all 4 IM programs loaded up at once still takes LESS MEMORY then having just AIM opened up.
It's also barebones, in terms of "added crap you don't need" that AIM is known for.
It's a good solid messenger program.
I've been a supporter for a long time, and donated to get a "key" back in the day. They gave me a free one year subscription to Trillian Pro.
I use Trillian also. But if I didn't, I would use AIM. I have already used AIM for years now, and stopped this year when I switched to Trillian. I love Trillians support for plugins. You get to have a bunch of cool scripts and some sweet Trillian-only icons.
I use MSN and AOL, but prefer MSN. I tried Trillian, but I didn't like the interface as much as MSN's, so I switched back.

AIM and ICQ, accessed through Trillian at home
just AIM at work as it is already installed on a lot of the computers
