    Default AIM

    I signed up for another league & the commish almost insisted that I sign up for AIM. I had no idea what it was or why he thought I needed it, but man is it helpful.

    It would be a big, big help if all of us could sign up & use AIM to work out trades on draft day. It is 100 times faster than sending trade offers back & forth on the site. Plus its free

    I'm at work right now but maybe someone could post a link & details on how to sign up.

    For the league that I run, I do insist that everyone use MSN Messenger. Using an instant messaging program makes trading so much easier.

    I've never used AIM though...and don't know if I want to install it. If everyone else is going to, then I might go through with it.

    I use AIM 99.9% of the time, so I'm all set. Just add me as Hicksatpd and give me a shout so I can add you (be sure to say who you are and it's for the league or I may think it's spam )

    I use MSN and Yahoo Messenger, I don't really feel like installing yet ANOTHER chatmachine, not while I only have 10 GB left of my original 370 GB .

    So, I would prefer MSN or Yahoo Messenger for this.

    Oi! I worked with 40 GB myself for years, but just like a house if everything is going in the right direction ... you need a bigger one after time and... ... I NEED A BIGGER ONE NOW, dammit!!!



    Besides, I just rather not add yet ANOTHER chat engine to my pc, two is enough for me, sorry just threw away ICQ a few months ago and I'm happy as it is now .

    The only problem with AIM is security. Installing it basically knocks a hole in your security/firewalls big enough to drive a virus the size of a truck through.

    Or so my IT people at work tell me ...

    Anyone who wants to carry on a discussion there is welcome to by me but if this is gonna be the trash talk board, why not just do a PM? And you can't actually MAKE a trade except on the league site.

    Let's see - League site to draft from, PD to talk, AIM to talk trades - seems like a lot of windows to me.

    But anyway, if I'm home I'm cde171 on AIM.

    If I'm not I won't have it. But I've never made a draft-day trade anyway.

    I've also heard that AIM is very susceptible to viruses, whereas MSN Messenger is much better. No, I'm not just making this up for my own benefit - just heard it from the "Nerds On Site" people (they fix computers). I was using ICQ at the time, and somehow picked up a virus which was the cause for their arrival in the first place. They recommended MSN.

    I'm not a huge fan of AIM either, for the reasons mentioned above.

    I'm on here everyday, and having a simple trade topic would be cool. If you want to keep things secret with me, you could instant message me on PD, or e-mail me at:

    skovan2002@yahoo.com (don't ask me why I chose it)
    "It's just unfortunate that we've been penalized so much this year and nothing has happened to the Pistons, the Palace or the city of Detroit," he said. "It's almost like it's always our fault. The league knows it. They should be ashamed of themselves to let the security be as lax as it is around here."

    1: I do not install any of that crap on any of my machines, had it and dumped it, mostly because on my own machines I nowadays only us Linux and foremost the security reasons stated before, all those programs are like open doors to rape.

    2: why the hell make life hard, I can make sure the chat is running, you can priv on that as well as talk in a channel, might be a hell of a lot more fun.

    (and you can use a webpage for it O)R a chatclient such as mIrc.)

    I like the "chat" option better the IM.
