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.

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.

Battered, ripped and torn
The colors of the flag of hate

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 ?
