    Chat can be cool but in my experience it just ends up in BS.

    Just do a forum search for IRC, I recall seeing KiVan posting around three IRC channels alot of people use to trade roms, and what not.

    I heard about it too and I don't think it's that easy. I think one needs to know how to hack the messenger in order to get the IP

    Ya, thats why when using AIM it asks you if you want to accept a direct connection and that you should only connect with someone you trust ( at least I think it gives that warning ). As to your comment about MirC, Ya i completely agree. It is a tad confusing until you've really figured it out. Which is why you can always use some other IRC client or a java based one online. Trick to that is finding the jave based ones. MAYBE if we ask nicely we can have KiVan or one of the site admins add in a java based chat client in the near future, for all the chat-a-holics out there [​IMG]

    well, a lot of people know how to hack. and did you know that anybody can get your password? even if you change it? there are documents on the internet that tell you how to get anyone password.

    the password of your messenger ?

    I would say one good hacker can do anything that you think impossible to do [​IMG]

    Oh well

    no, like your email password (wait, that's the same thing). and you don't have to be a hacker, they tell you exactly what you have to write, all you do is copy and paste then change a few names and words and stuff.
