I love just about everyone and everything. I despise very little in this world... but a few things do come to mind sometimes: mean people, Monsanto, patent law... and now AIM.

I'd been using Trillian as my AIM client because it tied all my communications together and had logging capabilities (you probably know how terrible my memory is). Plus, I've just had a lot of problems with AIM disconnecting me and doing all sorts of other weird things.

Well, AIM has been blocking third-party software, including Trillian, so I've just laid low for the past few days, awaiting another Trillian patch.

Today I finally gave in and started AIM. AIM wanted me to download the newest version, so I did, and opted not to close the program at that time to install it. I started Trillian back up to hit IRC, which disconnected AIM. So I reconnected... and AIM decided this would be a good time to install itself.

FWOOP-- lost all my windows in mid-conversation (eight or ten of 'em-- I hadn't been on in quite awhile and evidently had much catching-up to do).

*Grumblegrumblegrowl-- restart AIM*

Five convos get restarted... a new one starts...

FWOOP-- AIM crashes. Windows crashes (WIN is such a lemming!). Everything's gone.

Sorry, folks... I know the third time's a charm, but this damsel is distressing when she should be de-stressing (sky was too overcast for Saturn-watching, so I did mega-shopping at the maul mall before booting-up-- I may tell that tale another day), so I'm heading to bed.

Speaking of damsels distressing... (can you smell the segway?)

Happy Birthday

I would like to have posted something Evil and Delightful for your amusement,
but I got sidetracked by a most unkind villian.

Hugs to those who need 'em, those who want 'em, and those who
