Instant Message Programs

Just curious if anyone runs a chat program at work. If so, what is your favorite?

I run trillian, it combines a few programs into one (AIM and yahoo to name a few).

For security reasons we're not allowed to run any non-approved IM, narrowing it to MS Communicator only, and that's only for internal communications.

I used to run a few but got tired of adding them every time a friend told me they were using a different one so I haven't actually used them for roughly 4 years. I don't even care for its presence now.

I mostly use Yahoo! Messenger, sometimes AIM. I suppose I should migrate over to Trillion. It seems convenient rather than opening each program seperately.

We used to use at AT&T when I was there, an internal messenger, I liked it. Our company was pretty big and you got answers rather quickly. Saved my lazy ass from walking to another building or somethng. LOL.

If anyone wants to chat, my yahoo username is jesterweasel and my AIM one is DctpeAvngr. Last one means Duct Tape Avenger.... don't ask.

For my own personal use... I go old school and use AIM. It's just what most of my friends had back in the day, and I am too lazy to change (even though it sucks).

At work, we used to have MSN/Windows Live Messenger. However, we just got this new messaging client a few months ago called Spark. We only can use Spark within the office, or with off-site employees. I miss using MSN Messenger b/c we have really sucky smilies on Spark.
