I am no longer going to use ICQ or MSN messenger. I only have a couple friends that use them anymore and those two clients are the only ones I get spam on(and I get a lot of spam on them). It's kinda sad saying goodbye to ICQ. It was the first IM client I used. I think I started using it in '95 or so. I'll always remember that wonderful "uh oh!" sound.

I thought about stopping usage too. But then I upgraded my icq/msn/aim/yim program to one that has captchas it throws at people who msg you and aren't on your list. spam stopped over night.
Another great thing about the captchas is that they are text based and you can put anything you want in there to make it even more customized if you need to.

I have no idea if centerim will run on a windows machine but it works great on my linux system.

oh wow, nice. I've been using Trillian pro for quite a few years now, I wish they had that.
