    Sorry, had to get home from work.

    Binary log files huh? Ugg. Well that's just ridiculous.

    Um, well, do you still have ICQ installed somewhere? Or some other way
    that you can view the log(s)?

    If so, perhaps they could be converted to text with a simple select all
    and paste into a text editor like notepad (if on windows). Then save
    the file in notepad.

    Well, then you'll have a text file version of the ICQ log that can be
    edited into the Pidgin format.

    Well, I've been in the chat with pidgin power users today. They've told
    me, that ICQ should store messages as XML like other messenger do too.
    Can't confirm it. I grabbed the 'messages.mdb' and renamed it to
    'messages.xml'.

    I now want to try to manually port the file to pidging - but where does
    pidgin store its messages and what type of format?

    which should be in ~/purple/logs

    Once their in the right format it may be no more complicated then
    putting the file(s) in what I would presume is ~/purple/logs/icq. If
    pidgin's handling of ICQ logs is the same as for yahoo or msn

    Nope, I was wrong here... Pidgin saves messages in
    ~/.purple/logs/icq/*[icq contact#]*/message.*html*

    Messages seem to be named with date and time like:
    2009-01-16.194355+0100CET.html

    How the heck could I ever possibly port all messages over to pidgin?
    I'd be busy for YEARS!

    It should still be possible to script something though--better to have
    the computer do the work than us.

    actually, I don't use ICQ with Pidgin could you perhaps post a sample
    from one of the files that Pidgin generated too?
