An instant messager.
- Previously called funpidgin
- Forked from Pidgin when they went insane and screwed over their users.
NOTE - If I ever get into IRC again, I think I could set afk with xautolock.

I bumped into Carrier when I learned that it was a fork from Pidgin. They cited a feature-change that was negative and had no option to revert to original expected functionality. See ticket 4986 on Pidgin's bug tracker. Go ahead and read it, I dare you. At any rate, I truly admire Carrier's reasoning for forking.
\apt-get install gettext libgtk+2.0_0-devel # I could force it to build with this: ./configure --disable-screensaver
But why bother.
