While not exactly PHP-related news, I wish someone had told me about this all-embracing messaging client earlier. Trillian really does solve the problem of having friends on AOL, MSN, Yahoo, ICQ … each one of course refusing to switch to the one you use. At first I discovered Omni, the competition, but on my Windows 2000 machine this crashed so often as to be unusable. Also, for some reason, it couldn’t handle Yahoo. Give Trillian a try, save yourself a few gray hairs.
