I tried to like GAIM. I really did. As good as it is, I just couldn’t quite get it. So I’m back to Trillian. I finally heard back from Cerulean Studios (makers of Trillian) on my payment. According to the email, they are having problems with PayPal payments. Doesn’t explain why it took them nearly a week to get back to me after I asked for help, but that’s okay. My account is working now.
So I have Trillian Pro. It’s much like Trillian, but it has enhanced preferences (I can turn off those pesky mail announcements) and it also supports meta-contacts, so if I chat with you on more than one service, I can file those services all under a single contact for you, rather than having multiple ones. That’s cool. I like it so far. I’ll update you if that changes.
Update: I did have one problem. I downloaded what I suspected was the most recent version (it said so on their site), I even accepted the download when I started the program and it said I still didn’t have the most recent version. But apparently neither took. I had to manually download the 2.01-to-2.013 updater to get me to the most recent version (and fix my Yahoo! sign-on problems).
