Ooh, that does it, I'm going to download Adium so that ways I can IM everyone again. I doubt it'll work, because most instant message stuff snaps on dial-up these days, but it's worth a shot. So let's find that URL and (fade)

Holy crap over an hour to download. AWESOME. The problem is making the problem worse. Great. It's like when your car breaks down, and you want to drive it somewhere to get it fixed, but it's broken down so you can't drive it somewhere to get it fixed.



EDIT LIKE: OKAY. It works. Pretty much. I'm simultaneously getting the third degree from a sassy lady and chatting with a cool writer/painter/sassy guy but my flist is strangely... empty. Maybe it didn't import it right? Maybe it's just not displaying everyone. I don't know. Also, I'm a tennis ball for now. Great. ¬¬

Well, at least it's working!

I don't know if it will help, but I use Digsby?

Maybe? I'll look into it if Adium doesn't work out. It's built on the same library that Pidgin is. Pidgin never really let me down, so I'll stick with his weird little brother if I can. :3 I'm usually on Linux, and my main machine is, but this little iBook is running her native OS. I'm okay with that. It's nice spending some time in a new environment... especially when I can always bring up a BASH shell any time I'm scared or confused or just want it to remind me that everything's okay. Kind of like the holo-room arch in Star Trek, amirite?

I remember back when I had Trillian open at ALL TIMES. It was monsterous. College got the best of the habit. Oh, if I had a cell phone back then, with an unlimited text/data plan somehow, I'd... Well, I'd have been exactly the image we have of people at that age, nevermind.

I don't know, as far as looking glass experiences go, it was a worthwhile one. We were cute in an baggy jeans innocent jailbait kinda way.

Txtspk has its uses. *grin* There's a scene in The Algebraist that makes me smile every time I think about it...

It replaced my old server-side icon with it's own default. Which is a tennis ball, btw. Don't worry, I fixed the hell out of it.

Actually, to Adium's favor, it has a really neat avatar system. Gives you a dash of spaces, and it has a little widget for zooming in and framing from an image you give it. I went straight to my upload FA folder on this laptop. :D
