Good suggestion, Mark. By the way, ICQ is only for win95 so far. Here are
a few other suggestions:

1. Powwow is very similar, runs on win 3.1 OR 95 (sorry, no MAC version for
this, either) , and is also free.

2. Meet at a particular reflector at a specified time, and then exchange IP
addresses.

3. Email your friend telling him what your IP address is.

4. Talk to a REAL ISP in your city and ask if they offer static IP
addresses. This will definitely cost you a bit more than a regular account.
