I just recently made a clean install of OS X and I'm just now getting all my programs back. I tried downloading AIM off their official website but it's downloading as a .bin file. Isn't that a virtual drive image? Shouldn't it be downloading as a .dmg file? I'm really confused as it keeps trying to open the file in Quicktime and obviously it's not a media file. Is the problem on their end? Any help is appreciated, thanks.

Have you head of a program called Adium? It works wonderfully with most if not all IM clients. I am using it right now, and it looks beautiful, and it does not have any annoying pop-ups, or stock reports. Even if you are only going to be using aim, it is a good program to look into. The cool part is that you can download skins for it, they look really good.

Just a thought.

I tried that, but Adium's official website, www.adiumx.com, isn't working at the moment.

You don't need to get it from the official site. You can grab the file from VersionTracker or MacUpdate
