It makes me feel old.

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

That has got to be one of the most retarded proposals I have read on this forum.

Don't worry, I'm sure more will crop up shortly.

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.

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.

my scores of AIM Logs 2003, 2006-2009 serve as a core of original sources for my tragic autobiographical tracts.

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.
