It makes me feel old.

AIM needs to make a comeback! FB chat is so terrible.

Considering I got it at age 25, no. I only ever used it to talk to Snowguy. I miss you Snowy. Cry

Yeah, after four years of being a non-disruptive poster on the forum, never considered a troublemaker, even someone who was liked well enough to be elected Atlasian President, Napoleon should be allowed to stay.

I don't think I've used AIM since about 2006.  I've never used FB chat, however.

I honestly don't even notice it, as I use a client that merges google/facebook/aim/yahoo/msn.

As for the poor, how could they have adequate access to pornography, Hoosier?  They can't afford a computer or internet access, so, how are they to view porn?  I suppose you think they should just hump a pillow and think of England.

Facebook chat does suck, but everyone uses Google anyway.

Update reading list

The idea of parodying the preceding Atlasian's postings is laughable, of course, but not for reasons one might expect.

Yes, though I have hardly ever used it.  Just knowing I was among the first to get internet service via AOL dial-up in 1996 makes me feel ancient. 

What's AIM and why should I care ?

Ya, I've never used it and don't know what, exactly, it is.
