Boos and Yays for AIM

Today I’m experiencing both the joys and frustrations of using AIM. I use it all the time, of course, it’s nothing new.

On the serious “boo” front, it turns out that whatever the AIM proxy Cingular/ATT is using for the OGOs, well, it kinda blows. You get disconnected, and it still thinks you’re connected. Takes me multiple times of logging in and out to ever get it to work. I think my recent attempt took 7 tries. The error is uninformative, too.

On the “yay” front, I got to chat with Roland for like an hour and some, which was cool. Ahh, the days of both our jr. high and high school youths spent wanting to look like members of Skid Row.
