Does anyone else have problems with iChat unexpectedly disconnecting from AIM accounts, and not being able to log back on until you restart your computer? I don't know if it's a problem with my iChat, or a problem with the server I am working off of.

Ive noticed that with iChat I wasnt able to join any chat-channels officially available on AOL homepage. It works with AIM though...

Is there a workaround to join a chatgroup with iChat?

I like iChat but...

Sending files does not work very well with iCat and AIM users. In fact i havent been able to send a file yet.. .only have it show up (if its a pic) on the other guys chat window.

I would also like a stock ticker to be built in like AIM has... I would like that alot.
