    Hey Nexxo, do you have any decent themes for tabsrmm? I'm just using the default one with an ieview theme, but it doesn't really look all that nice. I might just go back to scriver + ieview.

    Adium all the way. It is so customizable and generally awesome. Pidgin on the rare occasions that I'm on windows or linux.

    i did use miranda and pidgin for a while, but i ended up just getting fed-up with them both (especially miranda, it feels like the foobar2000 of the im world to me) and constantly went back to msn with the rubbish chopped out of it.

    going to take a look at that digsby, looks promising!

    I've been using Trillian on my windows machine for ages now (god only knows how many years), and I have no reason or wish to switch to anything else.
    On linux, it was GAIM at first, now Pidgin.

    I just installed it and damn is it hard to configure ! There are just soooooo many options ! It's great however to have such liberty for tweaking

    I installed the Simple Glass skin and then I hid my contact list (dont remember why) and now I can't get it back at all ...

    Anyone got an idea ?



    oh and as for the topic, I have been using MSN for almost 9 years now. I have been patching it with MessPatch for about 5 years however because of all the crap that's in it now

    I just use the generic wip-vista.tsk skin at the moment. Fonts and background can be additionally customised under Customize --> Fonts --> Chat Module.

    Right-click on the tray icon, select Hide/Show.
