Pidgin. Free. Multiplataform. Does the job.

But the free version of Trillian won't do Google Talk. :'(

I guess Google users are more willing to part with their money. ;D ::) :P

I also do not use any of those IM things.

But, I did a long time ago until I learned better. It's been at least 8 years since I used an IM program.

I only use Windows Live Messenger (MSN) because that's all I need.

I wish I could figure out how to not get it to start with the new Hotmail though.

I see we just switched to EDT so the weekend is 1 hour shorter and sunset is later but the dawn comes an hour sooner but this does not confuse the Rooster.

You need to get a Rooster to wake the cat.

I voted "other" because there was no "none" option.
If someone needs to get in touch with me that quickly, they can use the phone.
