ICQ, guppster :) Stands for I-Seek-You :)

See for details. The latest beta, 1.13, is as
buggy as the proverbial sh*thouse rat, but I know people who use it. I use
version 1.12 and it works just fine.

No substitute for IRC for group chatting, IMHO, but not too bad,
regardless. It means people can page me to chat whenever I am online
answering email, for example.

And yes, Rooster, it even supports Netmeeting :)

Regards, Andrew
