AIM is fun. wrong. [parental advisory: extreme rage and language directed at AOL]

you know this stupid new ads that AIM forces you to listen to on your computer? yeah well i was doing the good old normal close the aim window to tray to stop it and my computer fucking bluescreens. my computer never EVER crashes, much less BLUESCREEN, god damnit, i lost a day and a half of stuff i was working on. then to top it off 5 mins after i reboot, quell my anger and hatred, and start working on what is lost, it does it AGAIN. that was the last straw, i've fucking snapped now. i swear to god aol is going to burn in hell then fall into ruin and will no know pain like my fucking wrath, fire and brimstone, until they remove those god damn ads.

there is no curse i can possibly use in any language or any smiley or picture i can possibly use to describe my hatred for aol.

you know you're in a blind rage when it causes bad grammar, spelling and inability to keep a steady train of thought. fucking aol. i hate them. HATE.

AIM sucks. ICQ sucks (though it didn't previously). Yahoo Messenger sucks. MSN Messenger sucks, but not quite as badly as the rest of them, and if you've got Messenger Plus! (a free third-party plugin) installed, then it ceases to suck.

I tried GAIM and could hardly get it off the ground. I also used trillian until i realized it too loves system resources.

They say if you play a Microsoft CD backwards you hear satanic messages. That's nothing, if you play it forwards it installs Windows.

*sigh* i wish i lost like some information worth alot of money then i could sue aoltw. i wish i could now because i lost so much work (mainly a very large and VERY cool update to the winamp pictureland, which i dont have time to do anymore), and all of the updates i was working on for many of my friends small websites i administrate. but in the law's eyes all of my work is worthless anyways, so meh. hey look i found my duct tape. it was behind my monitor this whole time. yay. all i need now is my baseball bat and i can go looking for whoever's idea it was to add that feature into aim.

Probably some dollar-hungry nutsucker Exec.

I downloaded Gaim, I'll give it a whirl. I can't get Trillian to work, however.

I stand behind that MSN Messenger + Messenger Plus is the only non-sucky IM solution. Except for maybe gaim.

Another show of how smart you are - agreeing with me. Automatically shows "brilliant", but I'd say you're closer to "genius". ;p

Do what I do... I'm using AIM 5.1 right now, and I hacked out the ads myself. It's simple to get them out once you install the program, too (requires a simple edit of the aim.odl file). The only thing is, you'll still have the white space where the ad was, but that's no big deal. Once I did that, I haven't had a single problem with AIM since.

The only time I use Trillian is for accepting messages from those who have not yet seen the light - AOL ICQ and Yahoo users.

The light being MSN + MSN Plus installed.

As for AOL, since when did anybody take them seriously?
(well other than 99% of their n00b users (1% being those who have AOL through not their own choice))
