ICQ = I Seek You
An Internet chat program.
It also has a nifty 'Q' that turns into a nifty cat for a few seconds... Hehe...

lol, simple things hey Raven ;)
The new version of ICQ is really good, the old one was rather buggy though, and message boxes would crash randomly... its really good now though, gotten alot better.

Yes, of course, the simple things. It is a nifty cat. :P

The new version is good, although I really hated it when they suddenly snuck in all those advert banners without telling their users first. Another thing that annoys me is the fact that every now and then you get a chain mail going around about how ICQ will either discontinue your service or start charging you unless you send the message to every one on your contact list... *groans* Some people just HAD to bring chain mails to it o_O

I know, its anoying isnt it, though if you download ICQ+ (the thing that lets you add skins) then it removes the banner ads from ICQ :)

Ooh, that is handy to know. Will have to try that out someday, although I hate it when that program puts floating buttons into these nasty little window group thingies...

A friendly hint: DO NOT accept .EXE "picscrollers" ;)
BTW I really don't use ICQ much... I use mostly MSN Msngr. for u2u communication.
