Real American Hero’s (Yahoo change)

Well folks.. yahoo started pestering me to upgrade to the latest version...

this pisses me off and i tried the latest version.. it sucks.. it has a flash file playing all the time (i hate the CPU usage flash uses for something i DO NOT WANT)

and since i can't figure out how to STOP IT.. i am now going back to my old friend

TRILLIAN
at http://www.trillian.cc. This program allows me to connect to Yahoo MSN AIM ICQ and IRC all in one program.......

I like it alot but its been a eh so so since some Yahoo Features never work right....

Now i used to use MSN but because I HATE ... i mean LOATH the way msn works with trillian.

IMHO you should have a IM name and you CAN have a optional display of a comment. MSN allows too much customisation of the display name so i could never figure out who was who when i see %!@)~|!@#!&@#!| as a name it was jumbeled and a person could change it AT WILL so it was ARGH!!!! so confusing... So the only way i could tell who was who was to select to show e-mail addresses.. but because this never was saved as a option it defaulted to the display name WHICH as you can tell pissed me OFF....

so therefore I wont EVER use msn unless its truely truely necessary.

This also leads to the removal of my old sig i used to use on Trillian. (because its a bit old and tired and LONG) (and more importantly i want people to come here)

Real Men of Genius. Today we salute you, Mr. Compulsive Away Message Checker. While most people are out actually having a fun life, you are at home reading about it on your computer screen. Right mouse click, Get Buddy Info, or the little Info box at the bottom of the Buddy List. You have people on that list you haven't talked to in years, but you still loyally read their away messages every day to see what they're up to. So, crack open an ice cold Bud Light, Marauder of the Mousepad, and don't wander too far from your computer because you never know when someone's away message may change.
