I prefer miranda, it has the approximatively the same feature but is a lot more powerful than trillian (I didn't use trillian pro).
The advantage of miranda over trillian is that it's a plugin based application: a plugin for MSN, another for Yahoo, one to know the weather everywhere in the world, another to see news of some sites (rss reader), a plugin to watch when other plugin or miranda itself is updated and many other ones.

Edit: And it's free AND open source !!! 1.gif

T-Pro is also plugin-compatible, with a very, very hardworking community creating official and third-party plugins for it. The sticking point is that $25 deal. Look at it this way. Figure I upgrade my OS every four years. If I actually paid for the upgrade to Windows, I''d spend $99 or so, right? If I use Trillian Pro for four years, I''d have to pay $100. Why should I pay as much as an operating system for an IM proggie?

Hmm.. where could I find more BloodRayne wallpapers? I''ve looked at deviantart and only found one good one so far..
 
 
Also.. Does stylexp allow you to change color to the various taskbar parts? I know it obvious modifies other things, but I''m just curious..

Hi, ... Well I am at work. So, I thought I would show you my Desktop on my work machine. ... It is an Apple G3 Tower running OS 10.2.5

I have a great background of False Creek in Vancouver. I took it one night on my way out of work. I work down in the False creek area and was walking back to my car.

BTW, sorry you have to download the picture as an attachment. .. (damn Mac''s)

Ooh. This sounds like a fun topic. I got one too!
Half size version below, full size attached. I truncated half of it off since the other monitor isn''t showing anything different. This is my computer at work.

It is? Huh.
Is there any way to tell from the screenshot? The only thing that seems amiss is the shortcut arrows on the icons...hmm.
And you also have the drag dots on the start bar, but it appears to be locked since there is no "top" drag...thing. No drop shadow on the icon text but I think that can be turned off in XP.

If you mean your desktop then its alt and printscreen at the same time. Then paste the clipboard into your image editor et voila!
