Aim/ichat is blocked on my school mac

I really need to get onto aim. I have no other way of communicating with anyone and I'm grounded. No cell, I'm not allowed to use the home phone, or computer... someone PLEASE, if you have a solution to this I will love you forever. Please hurry, I'm losing my mind.

    How is it blocked, is it a program blocking it or are you using the web version?

Almost every site is blocked at school and i want to go on aim. what's a good site that will let me get on?

You'll have to ask your school staff.
They won't unblock social websites because they don't want you wasting your time and their resources when you are supposed to be learning.

Skype does not come up on a Mac(picture)

I have a mac too and am able to skype my mac and PC friends . . . ideally you can go to iChat where you can video-conference more than 2 people (skype, as you may be aware, is limited to 2, for now); but getting back to your 'not seeing each other' problem, when your skype window opens you should see your picture in that window, if you don't, there is something wrong with your camera - make sure the green light at the top of your monitor is on, go to the help or 'settings' menu, and turn it on, I can't recall how I activated mine (when it wasn't on), but the green light must be on; and on the other end, their camera must be similarly on, and often it is as simple as clicking on the blue video / camera icon at the bottom left of the skype window . . . I know often times I am skyping with novice users who have inadvertently 'hit a button' and have disabled their video . . . hope this helps.

I don't want AIM or AIM pro to come on automatically.

ok When you turn on your computer and it autimaticaly logs you in you need to log yourself out and then on the screen where you put your user name and password, there will be a little box thats says, save my password and there will be another one that says sign me in automaticaly. Uncheck the one that says sign you in autimaticaly. If you want to use your vidioe camera you dont need aim pro unless you have a mac then the vidioe set up process is a little for complicated

Hello my school has blocked all aim resorces. Do you know any way i can get onto aim?

You can usually use AIM on your mobile phone for free. Most mobile phones come with AIM already installed. If you have GMail you can access your AIM buddy list on there and chat just like you were signed in to AIM. There is also a web access version of AIM on their website.
