I got a better idea, how about a live chat room so whoever is on Hardware Central could chat to eachother. This would be great as there would be certainly a bunch of people on this site at once and there are a lot of members on this forum. A live chatroom would be great!
It's not a number you add to your regular list. Its a special number for the Active List. Look at the top of your ICQ bar, there should be a little icon that says, AL. Right click on it and choose Find/Add an ICQ ActiveList.
