    I seem to be having problems connecting to AIM all of a sudden. iChat doesn't connect at all, while Adium does, but very slowly.

    Yep, adium won't connect. Just wait it out, even AIM is allowed to go down sometimes.

    my MSN account is working though.. i think. I don't have any buddies on it :).

    It happens ever once and a while. Even in ichat, so I assume its the AIM service itself.

    I wish AIM wasn't as popular, it isn't reliable...but it does have nice clients for Mac. Have you seen the AIM for Mac though :eek: It's soo ugly. I don't really like any of the messaging services but I use them anyway :rolleyes: My AIM stopped working just now...uugghh.

    I wish my home dawg slices used MSN, much more stable. The client isn't so good.. but Adium is :).

    This thread cursed me. Suddenly my iChat won't connect. For hours. Yet a computer sitting right next to it will. Reboots and everything wont fix her.

    EDIT: Ok, so very weird, if I use my router's logs and ping test I see the two computer connect to different ip addresses, when I ping the one the computer is connecting to fine, it pings fine. But if I ping the other address the ping fails.

    hrm i guess this is why gaim kept trying to reconect to aim every couple of minutes on my comp last night. I was wondering why it was doing that because I thought mayby it was me because of maxing out my downstream conection because i was downloading from usenet
