-Instant Messaging is really tough on a 68K Mac. It's even tougher on an emulated 68K Mac. ICQ and AIM have ancient unsupported clients that might work on a real Macintosh, but I have had no success using them in my emulated machine running System 7.5.5  **Update**: ​ Forum user **SSS** has described [[http://​www.emaculation.com/​forum/​viewtopic.php?​t=5345&​highlight=aim|how to use]] the 68K version of AOL Instant Messenger inside of Basilisk II. All of the web-based IM clients that I've tried do not run in any 68K compatible browser. There is one option, however: [[http://​www.bitlbee.org/​|Bitlbee]]. Bitlbee is a project that lets you access a wide variety of IM networks (including MSN messenger, Yahoo, AIM, ICQ and Jabber/​Google Talk) through an IRC client. If you are at all familiar with IRC, you can probably set it up yourself using the [[http://​princessleia.com/​bitlbee.php|official documentation]],​ and some [[http://​thinkhole.org/​wp/​2006/​09/​20/​howto-connect-to-google-talk-with-bitlbee/​|third party tips]] specific to accessing a Google Talk account.+Instant Messaging is really tough on a 68K Mac.

 This guide might be helpful to those not very familiar with IRC, or to those not familiar with the ancient IRC clients that run on 68K Macintosh computers. In the guide I am using an [[Basilisk II setup|install of System 7.5.5]] within [[Basilisk II]] JIT. To learn how to get 7.5.5 online within the emulator, check out this guide. This guide might be helpful to those not very familiar with IRC, or to those not familiar with the ancient IRC clients that run on 68K Macintosh computers.
