what ever happened to ICQ?
I loaded ICQ tonight.

I saw the "names" of a bunch of old friends I haven't been in touch with for years! Unfortunately none of these friends seem to be using ICQ any more. Are there any of you out there still using ICQ?

Current Mood: curious curious

I log on occasionally, spoken to mickg, ella and fly a few times. Not spoken to cyber twin or rince in an absolute age though :(

I like ICQ's lama game and RPS :x

Ella and Fly! there's some names from the past. They still happily together? They had a little maggot last time I heard anything from them.

Yes, a beautiful little girl and they're both as nutty as ever! Fly is teaching english to the germans :D

Nah, got bored with the constant spam. As I don't have a dick, I don't need random people im'ing me to suck it off. ;-)

Can't you set it so only your pal's can tell you are online?

I'm sure I could... but even when I was logged in invisibly, I still got spam. But I also rarely actually used it. I was able to catch up with the same friends on the MUD or on YIM or similar. *shrug* So I sort of gave up.

Back in the day when I could use it properly... I thought there was a way of looking up numbers by email address? Might be worth a try.

My ICQ is 56697853.

I use it sporadically, going on every day for several weeks, then not using it for a month or so, then going back to it. Eh.

Trillian doesn't like my ICQ that much. Apparently, I have too many ICQ contacts for her. If she'd get my AIM stuff right, I'd use it more.
