I do not know what's up with AIM, but it's certainly not on target! I've been unable to connect for the past 3 days! ALL my friends are on there, and NOTHING works. I know I run an outdated version of the operating system (OS-X 10.5.8) but damn it, if I change to 10.6.8, I've been told all my softwares would be outdated and not run anymore. Who wants THAT financial nightmare? Going to El Capitan would probably be even worse! I'm growing frustrated. I've had so many bad experiences with so-called updates that I piss my pants at the simple idea of undertaking that! That's what you get from being burned by MICROSHIT. Now Apple used to be stable, but from friends' experiences, updating has become a nightmare as well. When will all them smart-aleks understand that better is the enemy of good enough? I've heard people lose YEARS of work with updates. I don't want to lose all my stuff, damn it! I gnaw at the idea of losing software that cost me 700$ + just because some stupid bum wanted to do something 'better' and actually did not consider that retired people don't walk on gold or swim in money.

That being said, I'm on facebook.... but few know that, because i've tried hard not to make that public... I sort of hate putting my face on the internet to be recognised on the street. For me, anonymity is paramount, and facebook violates that. I know, I know, some would do anything (including murder) to get 30 seconds of fame on tv, but I find this shalow and stupid.

Now, I do need help to establish contact with those on AIM that were my friends. One I need particularly has a rather screen name: zodiacpts. If you have aim and that on your contact list, please tell him I'm sorry I can't get on aim anymore but that he can contact me via facebook as it is currently the only thing that still does messaging that works. I don't know how people find someone on facebook but they do. I figure its via mail addresses...christianlepsy@hotmail.com or christian.martin@live.ca dont remember which one i used... grr

I'll try going from 10.5.8 to 10.6.8 tomorrow... PRAY it works... Maybe, just maybe, for once, I'll be lucky with updates.

Before you do that, what version of AIM are you using? Can you update just AIM to 8?
