has anyone gotten this to work well with a black background?
i changed every background option in the example tikpre file to black, and every foreground one to lightcyan, even added ones that there were backgrounds but not foregrounds for. also changed the ones in the tikrc file
but the normal im text in the view window is still black on a black background in the text box

Re: wow!
daspek and i decided it'd be cool to put up a cvs (hosted at ( and a webpage for it and its centralized development

some people e-mailed him (who actually registered the page) saying they'd made some personal/private versions. we grabbed them, and blended them together as well as we can

and that's the story

where did this release come from? I thought they had abandoned Tik! Who took the initiative to bring it back?

Re: AOL Kills TiK
Geez, another pissing match between aol and ms, who'd'a thought??

GAIM still works I notice, so whatever aol tweaked to prevent ms from being able to talk to aim people didn't affect that.
