Stupid ICQ [Feb. 3rd, 2001|11:34 pm]
Brad Fitzpatrick
I turned on ICQ for the first time in weeks and my screen filled up with over 60 windows. Took forever to close them. Then, I had 41 people waiting for authorization for me to add them. I authorized 2.

I hate ICQ. I especially hate the people that send you messages when you're offline and expect you to reply to them. One guy said, "I'm too lazy to use email, so I wanted to talk to you about.......". Give me a fucking break.

Worse, I opened up ICQ on Windows.... that was my first mistake. The Linux ICQ clients are all so much better than the official ICQ client. Mirabilis people can't program worth shit. Every single piece of that application makes me want to cry. Back to using GnomeICU now.... sanity.

"[x] people can't program worth shit."

That summarizes my opinion of about 90% of software.

Damn, suckfree.com is already registered. That'd be a fun name for a software company.
