    Im trying to find a post that was made ( by locustfurnace I think ).

    It was a list of about 7 or 8 alternatives to AIM/ICQ/MSN etc etc

    One of which was a messanger type program that required downloading of an applet which allowed you to enter a 3D world, speak to people and build houses etc in a virtual city/world.

    I was browsing down old posts @ work and found it. I was going to try them out when I got home not realising it would be so damn hard to find the post again.

    The most annoying thing is I cant remember any keywords the forum search can find.
    I've tried view all posts by Locustfurnace / Viewed pages of previous posts & replies and become almost screen blind.

    Im not been lazy, I really cant find it. All I can remember is someone made a list of alternative chat programs .. one of which was a 3D world. Not much to go on.. ring any bells with anyone ?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks Dooks.

    To whom it may concern lol

    Now thats just BOASTING

    I think I will shutup I have overdone this thread and in danger of earning my frightning member title (that was a surprise)
    My apoligies to Dookie if he is getting semi-spammed by virtue of following this thread

    But to give you the last word which I know you like, lol, I shall ask a ?

    With all that speed does your appetite increase exponentially and therefore still suffer the net-age burden of low bandwidth under resourced.

    p.s. can you hear the dictionary pages rustling lol

    Boasting? I think not. I know a person in Milan Italy who gets a 10Mbps connection, So yea. I am running rather slow. But when running a SSL HTTP server, e mail server, NFS server, VPN Server, dial-in Server, Samba Server, SSH server, and CVS upping source files for server OS, I feel lke I am on a DSL line!

    I just updated the list, added about 6 more clients.
    so thats why i am upping this post, incase you *missed* one of these clients and might want to try em.


    -editing my own posts don't UP the messsages back to the top, thats why i am adding -this- message to the bottom.

    I made a 3 Gbps connection by bridging 2 connections together, 1 was 100 Mbps the other 12 Mbps and this is with only BellSouth FastAccess DSL (LITE) *LOL*. The connection varies each time I start my computer though it's anywhere between 3-4 Gbps.

    No more large fonts for me anymore either.
