I used to be really into instant messengers but they don't do much for me anymore. Part of it is that I really hate Skype as a replacement for MSN/WLM, but I'd kind of stopped using them long before that was changed.

I've been making an effort to keep Skype open all the time when I'm on my computer, lately, and I do have to admit it's been nice being able to talk to people in realtime again. I think a lot of people I know just gave up on IM when MSN died, though, so my pool of people to talk to isn't very large.

I love Skype and use it everyday to keep in touch with everyone from PC that I talk with. I find it convenient and easy to use so it's perfect for me! Sometimes I don't get notifications like I am supposed to, but other than that it's a good program to use.

Skype as a text-based messaging system is pretty awful, though... at least in comparison to what MSN/WLM was.

I don't really like voice chats all that much so I don't use it for that purpose a whole lot, which imo is the only place it excels in.

I used to have AIM, Yahoo, and MSN on at the same time. Now I stick with skype because that's what almost everyone uses nowadays, yeah?

I have MSN, AIM, and Skype. Though these days I've only used Skype because I haven't had a need to use AIM and well ... no need for me to use MSN either.

I have AIM and Skype, but no one really ever messages me on AIM anymore, and I used to use MSN prior to the merge with Skype as well. Most of my instant messaging these days is done through Skype, and I rarely use Skype for calls as well.

I've only used Skype for calls when a few of us from the server decided to do a voice chat. Other than that, I hate my voice and prefer to talk through IMs.

I thought I was the only one who hated their voice xD but yeah, I typically only go into calls if others agree, and if I'm in the mood to talk.

Ugh, I'm not feeling so well tonight I feel feverish ):

Aww thanks Jelli <3

I'm definitely gonna be getting off the PC (both the personal computer and the PokéCommunity haha!) real soon to get a good night's rest. I just hate September because it's the month I'm most vulnerable to colds throughout the year :[

My body catches a cold very easily. So good recovery Zach!
Also I mainly use Skype for IM. I use WhatsApp for my RL friends since it requires phone number.

Meh, I don't really use skype, unless I already know the person very well IRL, or if I'm playing something like Minecraft. I just don't really like skype or things of it's ilk all that much.

Colds, I never get them. :}
Seriously, I get one, maybe two, a year.

Get well soon, Zach! Have plenty of Vitamin C, and Herbal Tea!

Vitamin C + Rest + lemon & honey tea + orange juice will keep you at bay. Get well soon. :>

Oh noo! Feel better soon, Zach. I used to get sick every two weeks in winters but it's probably been around two or three years since I was last sick now. :<

I was a little sick last Friday, but other than that I haven't been sick in years. Luckily my body has a great immune system.

I hardly ever tend to get sick which is quite a lucky thing, but when I do it's often really bad haha. Hay fever is an exception though, that's usually weeks of feeling like crap. :p

I get sick pretty often. My immune system isn't the best. I haven't gotten sick nearly as often since I went back on sleeping pills for my insomnia, though. Getting enough sleep each night makes such a big difference. *u*

I rarely get sick, but I do get sinusitis problems every once in a while. They clog up my nasal passages and makes me sneeze almost constantly until it dies down. I guess it's allergies, but it also might be genetics as my father also has the same problem. I don't have any allergies that I'm aware of... Probably should be dust mites and all that.

I rarely get sick as well. I've build up some immunity against cold weather and germs, so that's probably why. Plus, I rarely see the doctor for every little thing in terms of sicknesses. I can't remember the last time I got a cold. xD

I used to visit the doctor quite frequently when I was younger because my parents were extremely paranoid and every time I would cough they'd assume I was dying D: I don't really visit that often anymore other than checkups and when I go to get my heart checked out.

I don't get sick that often, most of my health problems are external, mainly with my skin.
