Dont get me wrong here, not asking anyone for a chit chat
I've heard people talking about "backing up" your contact list, when you would like to update the icq version so that your contact list wouldnt disappear, or when you would like to transfer icq to another computer.
I managed to make a total fool of myself and lose 200 over people in my contact list when I updated in my icq i know it's stupid. Although it is good to clear out all the people i never talk to out of the list , but the authorizatonal stuff and putting ppl in invisible list again is dang annoying.
anyway, all helps are appreciated , and if anyone would like to get in touch , view my profile i have my icq number in there
