not sure if im missing something here, but you realize that you could have just dragged and dropped that same file into the chat window, right?

In theory, yes, but not in practice. From my experience, Skype's the only app that works reliably when you try to send files. Adium, much less so... it's a hit & miss (and more of a miss).

There are often issues when sending files between someone using iChat and someone using Adium. Also, I've recently been talking to someone who uses Meebo and I can never receive the files he sends.
