    I am good.


    I have been called a god, a saint, a hero  over the years since 2004 when I started posting about iChat and now the Messages app.


    I have amassed most of my 63,075 points posting about iChat, iSight camera  plus the Messages version in Mountain Lion and very little else.

    In fact you could probably remove the non iChat/Messages or iSight points  and I would still have over 62,000.


    However in this case this post in incredibly light on any workable information.


    I am not in the room with you.

    I am not looking over you shoulder watching you press keys, move the mouse and try to do things with iChat.


    I am afraid this post exceeds my mind reading abilities.


    Things that will help me to help you.

    OS X version.

    iChat version.


    What it is you are trying to do

    What it is you are doing to get to the point you have achieved.

    i.e the app will launch but not show you Buddy lists.

    or you have Buddy Lists  but can't see the green Video or Audio Only icons.
