IM…

Ok, ok… Folks seem to want to talk at me often enough that I guess I have to consider this “Instant Messenger” thing…

See, I'm not one for impromptu conversations and have really fallen in love with the non-serial “email” communications thing that was invented a few weeks back.

But, the rest of the world seems to have a raging stiffy for IM – and no amount of me being a stick in the mud is stopping them from asking me to install, AIM, YIM, MSN Messenger, ICQ, and all maner of other invasive, ad-driven, annoy-o-trons on my nice serene desktop.

Thankfully Frank the Goat has come up with an answer for me, and that answer lives at http://www.livejournal.com/chat/.

So, now I can have a nice non-invasive client running (iChat) that won't be blinkenflashing the latest in demographically driven drivel at me the entire time its running. Additionally, you have to be on my friend's list to talk to me, so there wont be any more messages from “HotChick6969” telling me about how she's new to the Internet and asking me to view pictures of her on “www.xtreemslut.com”…
