Have either of you tried to use those with a WebTV user?  Apparently
WebTV users can chat with MSN users.  A friend at work chats with her
dad via her WebTV (he has a PC), but she can't send a message to me.

I use Trillian via Wine, and I don't appear 'online'...

I don't know any one else who uses MSN..

I'm rick at havokmon.com , can you see me? :P
