Sadly I have no reason to use a chat client anymore but I do miss the Messenger days. Skype just killed a magical era of my life I guess. I hate talking versus typing and Skype didn't have a lot of the fun features Messenger did.

I use irc daily but at this point I don't really have many friends to talk to through it.

in that case, what's your favorite IRC host?

I like freenode myself for obvious reasons lol.

I've been using Rizon for years simply because it's what my friends use. Not really any particular reason beyond it.

I used to use Yahoo to talk to my wife all the time back in 2008, so naturally that's the one I voted for. xD I did use MSN as well, and I only used AIM once. I only got on IRC once, but it confused the hell out of me so I never bothered logging in on Sonic Retro's IRC after that one time. xD
