I’m running Miranda again

I gave up on Miranda quite a while ago because the development team was in a mess and they weren’t producing usable code on a regular basis. I switched to GAIM. Well, the GAIM team seems to be in the same shape as the Miranda team was a couple of years ago — they’ve stalled. So, it’s back to Miranda for me, at least for a while. Miranda’s very flexible and extensible but it’s also a tough nut to crack — you have to load extensions for EVERYTHING, including smileys (Yahoo!’s smileys aren’t included in the package).

So, in case you’re interested in giving it a try, here’s my running config, complete with plug-ins:
