The only place I use IRC is for chat rooms, and for that I just use 'MIRC'. I would MUCH rather use a chatroom or IM client over facebook which is full of bugs and sucks my computers speed to nothing.


Yeah... if I use Facebook Chat at all, it's through Digsby or Meebo, as letting Firefox idle on Facebook's site for a couple of hours quickly ends up in it sucking down 2GB of RAM...

I really don't care what people use as a communications medium, just so long as they remain marginally consistent.

Spockmeat: Seems to be working so far, cheers mate!

Also my family (of all things!) is starting to bug me about facebook. So far I've been laughing mockingly in their faces at the mere thought. I find the entire idea abhorrent, it means all the idiots I ever went to school with would probably find me again and bugger me about all that annoying crap that makes me so glad I'm away from them in the first place.

Great advantage with IM's and IRC, most of the dorks locally I don't want to talk with doesn't understand anything more complicated than MSN. So I'm saved.

Uhm yeah, I don't like facebook... got a bit carried away there.

It weirds me out when someone I didn't really talk to back in school adds me on facebook and then says nothing.

I don't even know anyone who still uses a chat program. Everyone just communicates on facebook around here.


Yeah, I still use AIM, but I've noticed that most of my friends I used to talk to on AIM just use facebook now and never sign on AIM

Perhaps he's building a list?...

I can hardly use facebook because anytime I'm reading somebody else's page I feel like a creep. It's good for communication but the rest of it I just ignore.
