    I know people have made sets before, but seems like they were missing some. Anyway, there are 164 smilies in here from OT and they use the same syntax. You gotta unzip this into your "Gaim\pixmaps\gaim\smileys" directory so that it creates "Gaim\pixmaps\gaim\smileys\OT_Emoticons_GAIM" directory that contains all the icons and the theme file. If you don't know where Gaim is installed, it usually is in C:\Program Files\Gaim.
    Get Gaim here

    Get the Smilies here

    They will see the text, like : squint : or whatever. It's too easy to grab them, tell your friend not to be so lazy. I built this because my wife uses a PC at home and I use a Mac. So now she can see the OT shit instead of the default crap you get.

    The only way to make your friend see them without the pack is if you were sending image URL's around or if you transfered the actual image. No IM client that I know of currently does this, and if they did, the remote user would have to have the same IM client that behaves this way.

    Anyone know a way to incorporate this into Trillian... cuz that would be freakin awesome! I know Trillian has the capabilities for different smiley packs... but i'm not sure if its as easy to change as Aphoric describes.

    I have a few minutes to kill... i'll see what i can find.
