IM demographics for my research group

Seeing as I run a research group devoted to Knowledge Discovery in Databases, I thought I'd mine my IM contact list data. Here are some demographics I found interesting.

Research students: 8
None: 0 (0.0%)
AIM: 3 (37.5%), ICQ: 1 (12.5%), YIM: 5 (62.5%), MSN: 3 (37.5%) | 1 of 4: 8 (100%)
2 of 4: 3 (37.5%)
3 of 4: 1 (12.5%)
4 of 4: 0 (0.0%)

Alumni on contact list: 13
None: 1 (7.1%)
AIM: 5 (35.7%), ICQ: 4 (28.6%), YIM: 0 (0.0%), MSN: 8 (57.1%) | 1 of 4: 12 (92.9%)
2 of 4: 3 (21.4%)
3 of 4: 1 (7.1%)
4 of 4: 0 (0.0%)

Affiliate students on contact list: 10
None: 0 (0.0%)
AIM: 3 (30.0%), ICQ: 4 (40.0%), YIM: 7 (70.0%), MSN: 4 (40.0%) | 1 of 4: 10 (100%)
2 of 4: 4 (40.0%)
3 of 4: 2 (20.0%)
4 of 4: 2 (20.0%)

Moral of the story: get Trillian or GAIM, everyone! Multi-IM clients keep everyone interconnected and cut down on the overhead for those of us who are otherwise forced to relay messages from one service to another.

Also, which of my contacts have Skype or Google Talk? Please reply to this message (you can do it "anonymously", but please give your name or IM).

Google Talk and Skype
Yep, got it - you were already in my list in both places.

I don't have a GT metacontact plug-in for Trillian Pro, though.
