Welcome to the future page for the NINA project. Yes, this page is ugly, but it'll get better soon, promise.

Currently you can check out our forums to speak to others and pre-register your screenname, and our Wiki for more detailed information about the project and protocols.

We also have a dedicated channel on the AIM/ICQ Discord.


We're working to primarily rebuild the original AIM (AOL Instant Messenger), AOL (2.5 - 5.0+), and ICQ platforms as close to the originals as possible, and document the entire thing. We've made a lot of progress so far, we have all versions of AIM working up to version 8.0, and we have rudimentary AOL 4.0 and 5.0 support.

(Update October 15, '20) See AOL 5.0 sign on for the first time in years (video captured before we had the Welcome window for AOL 4.0):
