Try erasing Adium and reinstalling; I've never had this problem.kingtj said:To be honest, I haven't used "Fire" yet, though I may have to give it a try.
I've been very pleased with the features, regularity of updates, and overall look and feel of Adium. Only complaint I've got with it right now is it seems like right around the time I upgraded to Tiger 10.4 and the time Adium started supporting encrypted "secure chat" features - I started getting a lot of errors causing the application to quit in the middle of using it.
I can't quite pinpoint what causes it, but it seems like it tends to "blow up" more often if I've been doing a secure chat with someone in my "buddy list" and then I close their chat window up, but leave Adium running for a while (maybe even overnight or something). The next time they try to chat with me, it will often say it's re-establishing a session using the existing secure session and then I type 1 or 2 lines of text and it crashes.
Try to convince everyone you know to switch to mac??? I've managed alone about to convert about 10 to 15 people on to mac , i've been trying to convince many people to stay away from AOL but no to no availVeljo said:It especially annoys me that Apple provides full featured apps to Windows such as iTunes and QuickTime Player (aside from H.264) and Microsoft offers 10% completed programs to Mac users. But what can you do?
That sounds really interesting... May I ask how you have configured your contact list style so that it appears that way? I'm looking for an alternative to the Mockie/3-Tone-Coloring style, but have not yet found a suiting one.Lt Major Burns said:the chat windows on mine is so much better designed than the msn one, and my contacts list is now along the side on the right, like a dock, just showing the faces of people online untill i click on it.
There is some trick through iChat, look on this forum for ichat.AdmiralAK said:is there a messenger out there that does the MSN thing but also offers the video functions of MSN ?
the MSN hack through ichat is that - a hack. it's very limited in use, and is closer to being a proof-of-concept than actually an adium replacemnt, and doesn't suppot video, audio, buddy pictures, complex smileys...or anything reallysirstaunch said:There is some trick through iChat, look on this forum for ichat.
But funny aye, a friend sent me a screen shot of her MSN chat (windogs of course), was taking up about 85% of her screen. I sent her a screen shot of Adium and set as 50% transparent on my screen, she was shocked ::ha::
the mac isn't online atm, so a buddy list screen grab is not possible, however it works on the principal that if you get all your windows to budge up about 3/4 of an inch on the right (opening up a space down the right hand side) then this can be used as adium status.Damrod said:That sounds really interesting...
