You won't believe what I just did... I just submitted a support ticket to ICQ Tech Support because I'm having troubles! :eek:

I had to do that once as well ;) Luckily I don't use ICQ any more (use Trillian instead) so I don't have to worry about their program messing things up and taking too many resources.

I tired Trillian as well before... but it was just too different. I guess it needs some getting used to... that's also why I don't use WinXP. So different.

Trillian is super cool, they released 0.725 recently to combat the gay AOL block cause apparently its "hacking" into their network.

i got trilian but i dont use it cuz i cant figure out how to sort the icq list according to online status, like those who are online are at the top and below them are the n/a and then away and so on.

ICQ is so full of bugs and ads that it isn't worth using any more. Give Trillian another try Chen ;)

DjSap: There is a way because that's how mine is sorted. But I've got no idea how I did it :) Check the options section thoroughly and it'll probably be there somewhere.

Great, got a reply. "Please uninstall ICQ and then re-install it ." :rolleyes:
Like I didn't do that for 3 times already.

I would not bother emailing them, a total waist of time.

I think you can with the latest version? Not certain.

I actually had to send a support ticket to Ikonboard the other day :o
I was working on the new official Ikonboard 3.01 -> vBulletin 2.2.2 converter, and I somehow managed to break my iB test board so that whenever I visited it, it told me I wasn't allowed to access the board. Including the admin cp ;)

i tried using trillion but i find it hard to use and so different to MSN messanger, although there are loads of new features i don't like the change.

I use Trillian for MSN, Yahoo and ICQ now...

Especially ICQ... ugh is it a piece of ****... almost makes me want to go back to v1.11111 (the win3.1 version)

But yeah... ICQ = garbage. It used to be the best... but now it's nowhere close.

I used to scratch my head whenever I tried to use any of the IMs but I have to say that Trillian has definitely made things far easier.
