A-huh! If you are working in a company that provides internet access like me, most probably that Internet messenging system like yahoo messenger, skype or msn is blocked in your network like me again! And yes! one obvious reason why IT or the management is blocking the chat or any IM services is for their employee to concentrate in their job (naiintindihan ko naman sila eh pero sana naiintindihan din nila ako). I believe that they are in the position to do that and that obstructing the access of online instant messanging system is at the best interest of the company as a whole. With the yahoo messenger installed and running on workstation in office, the temptation to communicate with your cyberfriends and relatives is really great. As a result, it will eat up the productive time of the employee in which he or she is supposedly using for his or her job assignment and tasks.
Syetness bakit ako nag-eenglish baka mabasa ng mga panang IT namin ito , patay na ako..ok.. sya..sya..mabalik tayo…pero sa kabilang banda alam mo yung kating kating nayung kamay natin na makipag chat sa mga kaibigan at kamag-anak lalong lalo ng tuwing araw ng linggo kasi wala silang pasok sa pinas, tapos tayo naman dito sa Middle East may pasok, lam niyo yung feeling na yun! Minsan thru email na lang kung makapag usap kaso ang hirap minsan trapik ang tagal makapag sent and makatanggap ng message. Eh paano na lang kung emergency, tapos hindi makontak yung phone mo or wala kayong parehong load, alam mo yung mga scenario na ganun na hindi natin maaring iwasan…
IT Admin might be blocking the yahoo messenger, skype or other instant messaging system but could this suffice their goal to prevent online messaging access on their network? Have they considered 3rd Party social instant messaging compatible for multiple instant messaging platform or the web-based im applications? IM Users on the other hand might choose using third party instant messaging software so they can access their favorite messaging system at work. These sites could be a work around so you can access yahoo messenger, skype, aol, etc.. even if they were blocked by the IT admin. Hep! Hep! English na naman..ehem!
First I used Meebo Instant Messenging Everywhere
Meebo is a website for instant messaging from absolutely anywhere. Whether you’re at home, on campus, at work, or traveling foreign lands, hop over to meebo.com on any computer to access all of your buddies (on AIM, Yahoo!, MSN, Google Talk, ICQ and Jabber) and chat with them, no downloads or installs required, for free!
Kaso sa kasawiang palad na detect ng IT namin so they blocked this site. Grrrrrr…
Second I used RadiusIM
RadiusIM relies on location-based features to differentiate it from other web-based instant-messaging services. It offers access to key IM services such as AIM, Yahoo Messenger, MSN Messenger and Google Talk, and it lets you search for other RadiusIM users based on their location.
You have to register first before using this web-based im apps. You must supply an email address, a birth date, a post code and your country, after completing the initial RadiusIM registration, you can choose to have RadiusIM connect you to your IM accounts automatically when you log in. Pero sa kinamalas-malasan pa rin, na detect na naman ng bwakanang IT namin so SITE BLOCKED!!!
Third and what I am using now KoolIM
KoolIM is a web application that allows you to stay in touch with your friends over their favorite instant messengers almost anywhere. You only need a web browser (e.g. Firefox, Internet Explorer, Opera). With KoolIM there is no need to have multiple chat programs. There is no need to download and install any additional software or plug-ins into your computer to use KoolIM Web Instant Messenger. Any recent graphical browser will work (e.g. Firefox, Internet Explorer, Opera).

Har-har-har!!!
Fourth Ebuddy-Web and Mobile Messanging
eBuddy is a free web based messenger that enables you to chat with your MSN, Yahoo, MySpace, Google Talk, MySpace and AIM buddies. No downloads or registration required.
ILoveIM lets you connect to AIM, Google Talk, MSN Messenger or Yahoo Messenger from its home page. You can sign on using your existing screen name and password, but you can’t connect to more than one service at a time. Less sophisticated than other web-based IM applications.
