I have been testing Trillian Astra, and thank to this wonderful work, I can now use AIM as a backup messenger.
Also I'm to afraid of Triton/AOL 6.0 to try installing it without this so I don't know if its a triton bug or something Ad Hack does that makes it unable to stay connected.I know two other people in RL with the same problem - constant disconnects from AIM only with triton.triton is actually getting much better performance-wise in these latest releases.Buddy List Symbols and Icons in AIM Triton Message: IM-0203 [Screen Name] is not signed on.Message: IM-0205 Screen Name rejected your request Message: IM-0402 Error validating From: E-mail address Message: IM-0406 "Could not send mail to [Screen Name]" Use E-mail with AIM Triton Message: "Attempting to sign on again too soon."

Works as promised and seems pretty consistent with updates.
In response to why I don't use Pidgin or Digsby or the slew of others - they don't offer the interface, options, or features I prefer.
I also do not like GTK; and I really dislike having multiple-client buddy lists all on one window.
I would like to thank the author for his efforts in cleaning up AIM's invasive, bloated garbage.
