Funny thing with meebo.com and ICQ
Going through some Web 2.0 list of sites I found meebo.com which allows you to connect to some major IM networks through their site, using their desktop-like "AJAX" interface. I connected to ICQ and all worked OK, except that I am not used to it and it doesn't have sound for when new message is recieved.
So I quit that and tried to connect with gaim, and failed. I tried multiple times and failed again. The first time I tried was when I was still connected through meebo.com. I thought that I can just take over the connection with gaim (as I was able to previous from some other programs).
I tried after I disconnected from meebo.com, and even closed the site, but up until today I still can't connect to ICQ. I even reconnected and now I'm thinking of rebooting my computer.
The only thing that currently comes to mind as a reason I still can't connect is that meebo.com didn't disconnect me properly, that is, it still holds my account on ICQ servers captive disallowing any other client to connect back.. In that case I really am not sure what to do. The only way left to connect to ICQ now is through meebo.com itself.
