Nah... Since running Linux, I've always used Pidgin. Never had a need to try anything else. Actually, I haven't loaded Pidgin for any reason in quite a long time. I haven't visited any Chats or used any messenger services (AIM, Yahoo, etc.) in the last decade, I don't think.

Yeah, I stopped using chats long ago but I was using Gaim and then when it was changed to pidgin.

Ah. NAIM only lets you use AOL messenger. By the time I stopped using them I had AOL, MSN, Yahoo and ICQ in my client.

I wasn't really into chatting but I gave it a try and went with Naim.....this was quite some time ago.  I'm trying something different...not really all that green and not that many people using it.  When the sun goes down, it really sucks.  It's called "Smoke Signals".  I'll keep y'all posted.

It was kinda fun...almost like Amateur Radio RTTY...  I had an old friend from back in the early 80's.  We reconnected after 2k and enjoyed reminiscing about hanging out at the campground she and her family stayed at during the summer.  I imagine the hardcore chat folks hung out and "talked" to everyone.....I didn't, and then I stopped using it.

Thinking can be a strenuous exercise. I avoid it more and more as I get older. :)

My problem is I forget things more than before.  Like, I forget that thinking can be strenuous so I end up over thinking something I forgot.  It's a vicious cycle.

Yes, forgetting trivial schit like an actor's name or the group that played a certain song, etc. can drive me nuts sometimes... causing over-thinking. ;)

And that is what a search engine is useful for ;)

Just remind me what a search engine is ? I can picture a steam engine or a diesel engine but am lost on the search engine.

Yup. I couldn't for the life of me remember an author's name last night when I was laying in bed. It was driving me nuts because I've read everything he ever wrote. I could only remember his first name... Michael. I finally couldn't stand it anymore. I got out of bed and grabbed my cell (the computer had long been powered down already) to Search. It was Michael Crichton. I felt better and went to sleep. :)

I regularly can't think of names of actors, movies/series, songs or musicians. Until almost exactly 10 minutes after the conversation about them had moved on to something else. 🙄😁

I've read a few of his books, but this is no lie....I don't remember the titles.  Now I will have to find a list of books he wrote to find the ones I read.

Umm... yeah. I even debated which to post when I posted the above. Old brains don't work as well as they used to. :(

They say as we get older to stuff like puzzles to exercise the brain....I do that but I can't remember where I left my pencil.

I find I regularly have to look up a dictionary to spell words I'm sure I used to know. Confession -  I had to look up "voilà", but I knew "viola" was not the right word. 😉

That's probably not age-related dementia that Neil is suffering from. It's more likely a bad case of auto-corrupt... er, correct, I mean. ;)

I'm trying.....  I always wear clean underwear and I wash my hands after changing them.

Well it fits but you need to trend a little further to the right. 🤔
