Just throwing this out there

I've almost completely switched over to the new PC and no longer have Yahoo Messenger. Now I'm using something called GAIM that the kids installed for me (I needed it for an online job interview). If you have a compatible IM service, give me a holler at "RocketTed".

Update: Ok, thanks to my daughter for clearing a few things up in the comments. GAIM is a free "universal" IM utility that is AOL messenger and Yahoo compatible, as well as a few others. I've got a Yahoo account, but for some reason the new PC will not let me open it. I'll work on that as I get the chance.

What is it compatible with? We have yahoo and AIM, does it work with AIM? And what are the pluses?

Lucky you, a new computer!!! I need one of those.

To correct dad: He is on AIM, but through the program GAIM. So in order to IM him, just use AOL Instant Messaging.

GAIM is like Trillian, in that it just combines all the chat clients into one program, each still has individual screen names.
