    i'm officially a mac noob as of today. after paying roughly 40 bucks for expedited shipping and waiting 2 agonizing days, my macbook finally arrived in the mail.

    anyhow my question is, since AIM for Mac keeps crashing randomly, I downloaded and installed Adium. But can't seem to find how to get into public, already established chatrooms. I'm a chat junkie, so i'm hoping there's a way for me to enter exchange 5 chats.

    There is a "New Group Chat…" (apple+shift+J) item in the file menu.
    Did you try that?

    yep, but that just brings me to private chats (exchange "4") which isn't what I'm looking for.

    That didn't work, huh.
    Thats a bummer.
    You could always use Semaphore instead of Adium.

    i managed to figure it out.

    it was more simple than I had thought. enterting an AIM command in the safari URL bar will open the corresponding action in Aduim.

    thanks for your help though:D
