this program is a kickass program... I have been trying to do this same thing in our company network and this thing for $60 bucks a year does the whole nine yards...It's cheap and does the job awesomely...

I think this is a great program and we should back it for several reasons:
1. Cerulean is making this for Free. For all we know ICQ can become commercial anytime...
2. It's the only program that lets us have all the accounts of yahoo, aim, icq, messenger and what not under one (1) window.
3. It's Cute.
4. It's not made by Microsoft or AOL.
5. It pisses off AOL.
6. It ain't a monopoly.

you guys take it all wrong when the H word comes around. But to kind of to illustrate the point.
Definition of the word hacker (according to Meriam Webster Dictionary):
1:an expert at programming and solving problems with a computer
Yes there is that other meaning of a guy that enters your harddrive to play pokemon with your files.. but I am talking about the first definition...
The reason I say PC's are more for Hackers, and imacs (note I am not including powerpc's) for the tender loving naive pc users is that most imacs are not upgradeable.. they are a pretty piece of furnituyre that will look nice under some black light.
PC's are more.. upgradable. I have a dual P3 that I have had since I have been running dual 866 and now I am running dual 1ghz. did I have to buy a new pc? nope.. I upgraded.. it makes me feel my money is put wisely. Still I cannot deny the new Imac looks really nice.. but it is not in the top priorities to buy this year.. Like buying a house.. getting married etc. A computer will never be a priority for me.. ;) but hey it could be for you... :>

further more I want to add that I see also that PC's are owned by hardcore people.. true hackers (in the good sense of the word).
Macs have always been oriented towards the easy person who doesn't know crap of technology and likes to shell 3000 bucks every year for a spanky new case..
my .002 cents

Macs are cute. And I got to give it to Steven... he has added design to computers since the iMac. But the way I see this mac style vs PC style is simple. PC owners are like car drivers.
Macs tend to be cute looking, with great aesthetics. They remind me of stylish cars such as the lamborghini diablo.. not because they are fast or anything. just because their design is chic, flawless.
PC's are to me the muscle cars. They are bulky, messy but they breath fire. After all Microsoft designed it's Xbox killer console from the power of a PC not a mac. PC's are adaptable.. it doesn't matter what you throw at them they eat and take it without sweating.
After years and years of working with both platforms I have to say like others have mentioned in here that macs and pc's have their space and their uses. While I do my game crunching on a PC, my power grafics on an SGI... When I get rich I could have a cute imac adorning my living room table.
Seriously I think people would respect (and purchase) the mac platform if it became more of a utility and less abstract art. Because even though macs are cute in design, they suck as bad as the xbox is sucking from great games.
Like for example, the Xbox.. it is an awesome powerful console, It could eat ps2's and gamecubes for lunch, but still it racks nothing because the software isn't there (yet). People should just buy the system they like best for the type of work they do and screw the rest...
