    Help !
    I am tired of this thing...how do I get in touch with other dudes on iChat ? None of my friends are and I would really love to have someone around, especially for my stupid questions on Mac stuff :) well, I should not say that. Also for simple chatting is fine as well

    Are there web cites (or is it sites, I never got this) where one can get in touch with iChatters ?


    ciao,
    gio

    umm...

    iChat is basically Apple's version of AOL instant messenger. If you know anyone's AIM screen name just add it to your buddy list.

    I think it supports other messaging services, but I only use AIM. Anyone know if it supports others?

    For now iChat only support the AIM-network, but rumor has it, that ICQ-support will be added in the upcoming version 2.

    Anyway, you're welcome to add me to your buddy list - my screenname is Mikler2002

    go to http://www.14k4.com/Mac/ there ".mac users can find each other by searching for common interests and start iChatting, visit each other's .mac homepage and share files," but I belive you can only use it if you have a paid .mac subscription.

    We had a Macrumors iChatroom around MWSF, but I don't think it's too active at the moment.[​IMG]

    I'm located on LI.
    You can try my iChat name (morlium) if you're still bored (though I'm only occasionally logged in).

    hmm why dont you try www.match.com ,get a real girlfriend instead so you dont have to spend so much time online alone. just kidding, we all suffer from it a bit or we wouldnt be here on the forums right.apple should have a profile search type thing for ichat so you can find people easier.

    pantagruel !!!
    thx for the advice ... but let me tell you that I am a bit past that stage :) I am a big boy now, married and with a son ! But you are right, in that I miss something a bit and that is some mac pals, especially since I moved to the US. Now my damned Mac keeps on semi crashing after wake up. This is such a pain in the behind. I am thinking of this right now because I was going to iChat but the icons on the upper right of the screen helas are dead ....
    So I have to restart

    best,

    damned, I guess it would be a good idea to say what my screen name is, well, I believe it is glugato ( I guess it is my email adrs without the @part..which would be mac.com anyway).

    Ok, later,
