I keep meaning to mention to y’all that I have an AOL Instant Messenger account now… so if you’re on AOL, put me on your buddy list as "edafrost". Maybe we can yak a little! Even if you don’t have an AOL account, you can use the service by downloading the free AOL Instant Messenger software. It lets you keep a "buddy list" of other AOLers (or anyone with the IM software), and whenever you fire up the program, it tells you which of your buddies are online. And you can send them stupid little messages in real time, they can reply with their stupid little answers, and, well, it’s usually pointless chatting, but it CAN be very useful at times. I want to collect lots of names. It’s kinda neat to hear the door open and slam when people log on and off.
(NOTE: the AOL screenname no longer works! Or if it does, it ain’t mine.)
