    Messengers make the yahoo front page!

    BUt it doesn't sound like a good thing. Is it being exaggerated at all?

    I've been here since 2004? I've never felt this old before.

    I was just about to post the same like. Seems like it would be legit to me. Faxes look like crap and fine details can be lost. With digitally pure and nearly instant (ok not really) data transfer I can see where many of the services messengers do could be out moded.

    I quit 7 years ago because I was making about 50 bucks a day. I don't think it has gotten much better. Granted I am/was lazy and liked to work short hours, but even hardworking/long hours can only get you so far when there isn't much work out there to begin with. The halycon days are clearly long past.
