I hate you. [May. 3rd, 2002|04:54 pm]

Dear authors of nearly all AIM clients for *nix, you suck. Can you write anything that doesn't segfault? Not. That. Fucking. Hard. gaim and kinkatta are both crashing on me today. I'd use ntaim if there were a few more convenient key bindings. And I'd add them, if I didn't have my own projects. Or, I could use AIM on windows and be plagued with a bloated executable and ads. Wait, maybe I'll try out the Trillium or whatever that everybody's always talking about. Hope it supports tabbing.

In good news ... mod_perl rules. Almost as much as not having to go to school or work.

Actually, if my AIM clients crashing are the worst of my problems, life's pretty damn good.

I was out reading my books in the hammock earlier, listening to birds chirping and squirrels running up and down the trees. Yea'.

Trillian

Trillian is an excellent chat cliet. Probably the best one for windows that supports all 4 (or 5) major languages. It does not support tabbing between open chat windows like GAIM does but it does support auto chat logging. Its also skinnable which I find interesting.

Verdict: Better than Jabber, AIM, and MSN, or anything else for windows but a GAIM user would feel there was something missing.
