heh.  i got centericq because i wanted ICQ and AIM in one ... the ICQ
protocol works fine, but the AIM one will randomly log me on every day
or two or ten for about half a second, and then log me off again.
it's quite funny, really -- i've taken to sending the current date to
my friend, and she emails me back when she gets it, usually ~4 days
later.

conclusion: centericq is great for ICQ, but don't use it if you depent
on multiple protocols (at least, AIM).
