AIM Conversation recovery (in Off-topic)

I finally see March 20 2005 9:06 PM EST

I wanted to save an AIM conversation, but accidently xed out of it. Is there any way to recover this conversation, like a hidden aim cache file? (I will award 10K to anyone who can help me recover it).

Not unless you've been using AIM+.

Is that a third party program?

If you are using regular AIM, then no, you cannot recover it. AIM+ is indeed a third-party program

id like to put up Trillian as an excellent third party chat program, it automaticly logs all conversations when you close the chat window :P

Used dead aim and aim+ for awhile... liked both... bad experience with trillian... lost my whole buddy list for two programs

I'll put in a plug for GAIM. It supports every protocol under the sun, it's pretty solid, and it receives very regular updates (it's consistently one of the most "live" projects on sourceforge).

LoL, the AIM+ Site was hacked if you click where it says AIM+ is not fully compatible with AIM 5.x......So dont think I'll be downloadin that one....

the only part hacked was the forum which is using phpbb v2.0.3... which probably has security issues since the latest version of phpbb is now v2.0.13
