Replacement for GTalk with similar functionality?

Ideally, I need a windows client and/or browser interface, an android client, and an iOS client. I would like synchronization (to be able to change devices and continue conversation cleanly). I need a standard chat log. I would love the chat log to be on an online platform so it can be easily downloaded/forwarded/searched. [more inside]

I would like to download a particular Facebook Chat session.

Been communicating with a family member who prefers Facebook Chat to other forms of chat, and I would like to download the entire conversation to have the text at my disposal. I can scroll up and laboriously copy/paste, but this is tedious. Difficulties: 9 months of a pretty much every day conversation, going back to March of this year. Mac OS. [more inside]

My Gmail tab continues blinking after I've read the Google chat message

Why does my Gmail tab continue blinking indicating I have an unread Google Talk window when I've already viewed it? It's been getting progressively worse for months, and I have several friends who have this same issue. The only way to get the tab to stop blinking is to open an email or something similar, which then "clears" the blinking name ("Steve says...") out of the tab. [more inside]

Talk to me!

I have a job that currently bores me greatly, with lots of down time during the day. A coworker and I started texting during our workday recently, and I find it entertains me and passes the time, in addition to pushing a few of my other buttons. Unfortunately this relationship has gone a bit sour so I'm looking for a similar situation and I'm wondering if there's an easy solution. Special snowflake details inside. [more inside]

A Gmail/Google/GTalk chat alternative

It's an old cry now - to get out of Google's claws. Mail, calendar and everything. However, I always find one thing missing. Chat is never talked about. As a matter of fact this one is the difficult most. You need to have added all those chat contacts and they in turn have had to added you(approved) you back, unlike email where you just need to fine an email and the receiver gets it unless you were specifically blocked. So, let's discuss how to release our chatting app/service free from the claws of Google/Facebook/Skype &c and still be able to: [more inside]

Cripple Facetime and Skype 'Cuz Vid-Chatting Makes Me Anxious

I have an extreme aversion to video chatting. I'm not looking to AskMeFi to fix that. I'm just looking for help in: 1. setting my iPhone 4 so I'm not invitable to FaceTime (it's too easy to accidentally hit the "accept/answer" button), optimally while maintaining the ability to invite others (in case of some sort of emergency need), and 2. figuring out how to make audio-only Skype calls (incoming and outgoing) using my iPhone's SKype or Skype-WI-FI app. [more inside]

Changes in Google Hangout Chat Window

I want to know why in Google Hangout it no longer says "Theirname is typing..." when the other person in the hangout is typing in the chat window (or "Theirname has entered text" when they've written something but haven't sent it). It's gone, and I miss it and want an explanation so I can move on with my life. [more inside]

Chatfilter, but only sort of

Need help finding a new chat solution for a far-flung group. Our core group of friends is spread across the US and Canada. Part of what keeps us so close is the private chat room we've had for the last 10 years or so. Sadly, the current owner of this is shutting it down, and we need to find a new place to hang out. I've been tasked with finding the solution. To head off the inevitable question, no we can't take over the existing site, for multiple reasons that I don't want to go into. Currently we're using phpMyChat 0.14.5, hosted on a back alley page of the owner's primary site. Are newer versions of phpMyChat going to have similar features? And how do I get one?

Sending Canned Video Via Skype

I'm about to video Skype for the first time, using my macbook pro's built-in isight camera. The person I'm Skyping with has never met me, but has a whacky sense of humor, so I thought it might be amusing to start out by feeding in a few seconds of stock video of a hunky male stripper (cutting it off, and replacing it with my geeky real self, long before it gets lewd). Is there any way to do this?

How do I search all Skype history contents?

How do I search the contents of all Skype chat history on OS X? Skype's regular search feature only searches the topics of old chats, but not the contents. I swear I found a way to do this some time back that involved typing some undocumented commands to create an index and then search it, but Google is failing me. I do have Skype's feature to keep chat history forever turned on.

Adult webcam chat for actual adults?

After a few chatroulette connections that turned surprisingly erotic, my wife and I (on the cusp of our 40s) are interested in further exploring sexy webcam chats. We're looking for sites populated by people (ideally other couples, but singles are OK too) who are not teenagers, and who are inclined to be discreet (I realize there's no guarantee on that one, but sites with a culture of discretion would be nice). Pay sites are OK. Any suggestions? If you'd rather not post info here, feel free to send suggestions to throwaway830@gmail.com. Thanks!
