for those of you that have multiple chat names (and systems), check out adium. many times for different reasons i have multiple chat systems and names and one option is of course to have ichat, aim and yahoo messangers all open – but gads, that could be messy.
adium links into a slew of systems, allows you to fill in your user information on a number of these chat systems and with one client signin and have access to all the systems. so if you are online with adium and one of your friends logs into AIM it will pop up, then if a buddy logs into to yahoo, they too will show up and become available.
a nice, clean and consolidated system for managing your instant messaging systems and keeping in touch with friends – take a look.
