There is an internet chat program called ICQ. (I seek you) When you register, you are given an identifying number for that service. Think of it as a screen name for just that program. To contact someone on ICQ, you enter their 'number' to see if they are availible, and willing, to chat.

It's a really bad idea. (well in the beginning it was fun) Now the download puts in little bits of info into your .dll's, and some operating systems. When I removed mine the pc crashed. Took 3 days to get back online. And there was that darn ICQ bug. Finally opted for the pc shop to exterminate it with extreme prejudice.
