    If you check the thread in the 755 forum now, thetoad managed to get the program working. However, its not the simplest hack to get working.

    I installed it and was far from impressed. Deleted it after a couple of hours.

    Yes, toccer which is free works much better. It is about 2x as fast and works while outside the app. And you don't have to mess with that odd mobile buddy list.

    Eh, I'm almost 28. I didn't grow up with AOL (though I got my first personal email account in 6th grade), as I got my internet connection via using slirp w/ trumpet winsock back in the Win 3.x days. So I didn't really start using IM till college. At first we used ICQ, but most of my friends ended up using AIM so that's my main app today (though via gaim/pidgin, I'm currently logged into 8 accounts spread over 4 services (aim, yahoo, msn, and google).

    For me IM is a great way to keep in touch with friends that have moved away. It provides an immediacy that email doesn't, while at the same time provides a distance that voice communication doesn't (sometimes calling up someone you haven't spoken to in ages is a little difficult, much easier to send them a "hey, what's up, long time no speak").

    In some ways, I see facebook and the like being used as a similiar means today. In fact, I expect one day there will be an IM client interface to facebook (they already have an sms interface).
