Yeah yahoo is down....I wanted to get hold of my bro in cali...

at first I thought that yahoo was getting crappy on my v5 client (got sick of the "upgrade" messages, and refuse to use the new verison with it's ad banner), then I tried my upgrade-spam free version of v7, and it still did not work....

Oh well, I'll just nuke some 3 day old pizza and listen to some music or something.

Still down. Dang. Well I guess it's a good excuse to just hear his voice instead.

HEY! I don't have anybody's yahoo address! *pouts* Of course, then I'd probably be tempted to chat about bikes while I'm SUPPOSED to be working... but then, I already give into the temptation and check bike forums from work.

It's a crappy job, anyway. Maybe they'll find out and fire me.

I stay logged in (but invisible) and when I came back to my computer after a few hours, I noticed it was trying to log in. Still down it seems.

I didn't know all of you were on Yahoo messenger...maybe I should get IDs and chat with a few of my foo budZ!

To be honest, I think they are ALL the same more or less. I just got used to Yahoo first. There are programs you can use to chat on any of them, like Trilliam or GAIM, if you really are a nut. I have Trillian, but only use it if I need to chat with somebody who isn't on Yahoo.

Heh... I have Gaim, and id's on Yahoo, MSN and Aim, and I also usually have IRC running in the background.

hell... it's a wonder I get ANY time in on my bike!

I noticed you mentioned using it...hence the reason for my last post in the first place.

Too true.

They must have 'upgraded' all their servers to Windows ME

Windows ME - The biggest OS flop in the history of computing. I installed it on a Friday evening and removed it by Sunday afternoon of the same weekend.

Tell me about it... I've been working on computers for 17 years now... *just shakes his head*

I had someone bring me a Win ME computer the other day, wanted me to 'fix' it. Recommended the recycling bin and a new comp! (Yeah, they went and got it.)

Can't believe they used that for so long!
