Ahhh… Instant Messaging one of my old and long-time friends. I have used Instant Messaging since 1997. I used to be a heavy icq user. I also used AOL Instant Messenger and Yahoo Messenger. These days I pretty much stick to gtalk. I don’t use instant messaging nearly as much as I used to. However, I use it all of the time to talk to my husband throughout the day or while one of us is traveling. I also use it quite a bit to communicate with Liz and Heather from NEKLS.
