Few days ago while chatting online, suddenly ICQ strikes my mind. ICQ was the first chat programme that I used in the past but being abandoned for the past few years. If I didn't remember wrongly, the last time I logged in and chatted using ICQ was .. 4 years back? Out of curiosity, I downloaded the latest version of ICQ (ICQ 5.1) and installed it. Luckily I still remember my ICQ number and password. Yeah... I quickly logged in and checked on my contacts list.
But... as expected, none of them were online. No green flower, not even a single one. All the flowers are red in colour. Give me the feeling of.. looking at hibiscus (all red-red niah).. Notice my nice ICQ number?? I like the last 3 figures 188. Better still if it's 168 :P
Mmmmm... Has everyone abandoned ICQ? I think nowadays most people are using Yahoo Messenger (YM), MSN Messenger, Skype or Google Chat. Those were the days when we used ICQ. Another popular chat programme in the past was mIRC (which I didn't use).
Remembering the nostalgic...
- the cute "oh-ow" sound in ICQ when we received a new message.
- the "tok tok tok" when someone on your contact list go online.
- the voice saying "incoming file transfer" or "incoming chat request" ...
Anyone here still ICQ-ing?
