    But Yahoo was the DTF client.

    Yup. I popped in to say this. Met too many girls through Yahoo. Most were through a friend using my pics. Long/not so long story.

    I was most comfortable using Yahoo Messenger but far more people I talked to regularly used AIM so that's what I used mostly.

    I used MSN a fair bit (mainly to talk to fellow EoFFers) but I really didn't like the way the client functioned.
    I like Kung-Fu.

    I think I used AIM the most but the notification sound drove me scatty. I had more American friends at the time online so I didn't use MSN half as much.

    I liked IRC/Sysreset more than the others.

    I used AIM the most for sure. Noit many people in my school used MSN even though it seemed like everyone on here used it.
