One of the greatest tools known to all successful fantasy ballers is Instant Messenger.
Now I have always used Yahoo, realizing that it was quick and easy since I use Yahoo mail. Coordinating the two is a breeze, but I lose contact with any AOL IM guys ..
Recently I upgraded my Yahoo IM to the newest and the best. The phone that lets you do free phone calls and all the gizmos.
Unfortunately, I have had nothing but problems.
A) The free phone service is ok and all, but it is more like a CB.
B) I have connection problems with people that do not have the newest messenger.
More specific, I get cut off while IMing if they do not have the newest version. I have to actually go to the saved file to find out what they said. It is a real pain, and somewhat embarassing while talking to somebody.
So in light of all this ..
I am thinking of upgrading altogether.
I understand there are IM programs out there that let me talk to both Yahoo and AOL guys but I am not sure which one is the best.
I would have a couple of questions about the new software too.
* can I synchronize it with my Yahoo mail
* can I use the file swap feature
* can I do the free phone call thingee
* can I save IM conversations
* Is it a memory hog
Any and all help is appreciated.
