Well, I did manage to authorize falkon2 (and exchange messages), so perhaps his problems are over. If you want to be on his contact list, it might be a good idea to tell him your icq# again :-)

I recently had to reformat and reinstall, and I can't get many programs to work, including ICQ. For the short period with which this thing actually functioned, I discovered that I was not able to salvage my contact list, and thus I need to re-add everyone.

Now the problem here is: My authorization requests and/or authorization grants don't seem to be reaching people. I'm wondering if anyone else as this problem. It could be because I'm running an old version (99a, to be exact)

However, I cannot download the latest version because icq.com is either not functioning, or my computer is behind some really bizzare firewall. Any suggestions would be welcome. (If it isn't too much trouble, try out the download links at icq.com and tell me if they work)

It WAS the latest version when I downloaded it on the Oct. 30th - they must have very recently updated it.

I already got that to work (Dumbass ICQ downloads page said the latest version was 2001b, which incidentally lead to a dead link), but thanks anyway. =)

Now to figure out whether the authorization problem was 99a specific.. I have rerequested authorization from mendel. If you don't get it, something is resiously wrong with my computer.
