@rom Haha, I just went down a nostalgic trip, I haven’t used ICQ in maybe 20 years? I have forgotten my number a long time ago. I’m not really sure what replaced it for me, if any, (other than SMSs. The Internet was still a novelty for many back when I were using it.

@rom Oh, I read your question wrong, no, that’s not my number, but it was very low.

@rom It amazes me that this is still around and I can still login with my original ICQ number.

@sander 😃 I looked up ICQ, and it’s still active, but maybe not as used as it used to be(?)

@odd Now there’s a huge blast from the past, or as ICQ itself used to say:

“UH-OH!”
