Babylon buster

Posted on 09 January 2002 by Demian Turner

While not exactly PHP-related news, I wish someone had told me about this all-embracing messaging client earlier. Trillian really does solve the problem of having friends on AOL, MSN, Yahoo, ICQ … each one of course refusing to switch to the one you use. At first I discovered Omni, the competition, but on my Windows 2000 machine this crashed so often as to be unusable. Also, for some reason, it couldn’t handle Yahoo. Give Trillian a try, save yourself a few gray hairs.

    I have to take this back, 1 month down the road I\’d have to say trillian is more or less unusable, at least on Win2k. Either the goes into a half-cocked mode after a few minutes use where your mouse pointer disappears if it goes over the trillian window, or else it just starts hanging and hogging CPU resources. I\’m back on msn 🙁

    gosh, one month down the road I wish I\’d found trillian earlier! I use it to monitor 2 x msn identities, 1 AIM and 1 ICQ.

    Now I\’m trying to find a tool to let user\’s who don\’t have IM use a \"guest\" identity which I control to chat to me via my website. Could use any of those 3 technologies. Any leads?

    Oh, yeah, and I\’ve had it loaded on 2 win2k PC\’s with no problems.
