    I use a program called pidgin. It combines my yahoo, msn, aim and google talk accounts in one easy-to-use interface. Not like I need all those accounts, but I have collected them over the years. I really only use AIM and google.

    drifter, what's your google talk account?

    I would send it in a PM, so the spam bot spiders dont pick it up.

    The interface that I use (pidgin) logs its own history as text files, which you can turn on and off.

    Their is a group chat for google talk. File transfers are unlimited size.

    I love pidgin. I have used it for about 5 years (it used to be called gAIM).

    Great program.

    Yeah, I used gaim too. I really like it now that they have added the google talk functionality. Everything is polished. I remember back when you couldn't do file transfers.
