If you want to chat, I'm on Digsby. You can use the chat widget along the sidebar and I'll pick up messages as I browse on by. Or download the client and we can chat through instant messenger from time to time.
Digsby was listed this past Summer (2009) as one of the top 5 Instant Messenger programs on the LifeHacker Blog
Here's a no-nonsense download link for easy installation:
digsby instant setup exe file - advertising free also found on the LifeHacker blog.
I used this file/installation link myself and my Digsby IM was up and running in about 3 minutes! Of course, while I downloaded, I registered an account properly at Digsby so that when the installation was finished, all I had to do was log into the software and start using the messenger.
Here's where you can register for a Digsby account if you don't already have one:

Once you get set up, my username is mythbuster2009
If you don't want to chat through the messenger, you can still leave a message on the chat widget I placed on this blog - it's on the left sidebar. You can chat as a guest and I'll see your message when I browse by - even if I'm not online or logged in to my messenger.
By the way - the software is free
