For jr. skulkers with Mac's

WebSkulker included items in every issue last week about the ICQ program.  Jr. Skulker Michael Cohen uses a Mac and therefore couldn't use any of those programs except ICQ itself, and the ICQ version for the Mac was way behind the PC version in its features.  (This is, of course, typical of Mac software and one of the reasons WebSkulker hates Macs and recommends PC's to anyone wanting to buy a new computer.)

Michael tells us that finally there is a new Mac version of ICQ that has most, perhaps all, of the features of the PC version.  You can download it from the link above.

Be sure to check out the Regional and Special Services page:
