using gmail chat in 3rd party chat applications

Posted by giveaphuk on March 20, 2007

something really cool i just discovered, while fooling around with my macs chat client adium. If you go into your preferances you’ll see an option for adding new accounts.. When adding a new account, simply select ‘google talk’ & then input your email address as username & subsequent gmail account password.

Then, as if magic, all your gmail buddies (that you prob. chat to @ work) are magically appearing online with all your other msn, yahoo, .mac, jabber friends..

I am guessing the same goes for similar PC apps.

Too easy!!

    The width of your text, from left to right along each line, is not comfortable to read. You need to seek some other theme or layout or whatever it is. Otherwise, very interesting. Cy Quick at

    Wait a minute! This is crazy! Suddenly your blog has changed from black text on white background to white text on black background. And the text width is fine. Oh well, another weird computer thing that I do not understand. Kindly disregard the foregoing. Cy
