As many know, i have an amazing talent at breaking all technology. This week, i broke AIM.
I got this bright idea to start adding new pictures on top of people’s pictures that bothered me via iChat. This required me adding them to my Addressbook. Something went wrong. When i fired up AIM on my Sidekick, they multipled. Some people in the Addressbook were in every ‘group’ including ‘Blocked Buddies.’ When i first sent a message to someone that was in both a group and the Blocked Buddies list, things went haywire. AIM on my Sidekick crashed.
I went to my computer. By this point, iChat was royally pissed. They weren’t in doubles there, but they started deleting themselves. I’d go to write a message to someone and i would get an error message (not a pretty one…) and the window would close and the buddy would disappear from my list of buddies. Hrmfpt.
So, i went to Fire. They were really really gone. ::grumble:: I tried to add the person back. That was a bad idea. Apparently, there’s a cap on number of friends in AIM. I believe that it is 150. Since a lot of my buddies were inserted many many times, everything got mixed up. I think my buddylist overwrote itself. Basically, my AIM is FUBAR.
And i’m once again reminded as to why technology hates me and why i hate anyone who abuses the number 150.
I decided that it’s time to start over. With a new screenname. Unfortunately, i no longer have everyone’s screen names. And i feel guilty once again spamming everyone (having lost my phone only a few months ago) so i figure i’ll post it here and hope that those who were in my AIM list will see it and remind me.
