If anyone has noticed, the moi link has changed recently. The only reason I mention it is because I’ve removed my ICQ number. When I wiped my hard drive, I decided I would no longer support a shoddy piece of overblown, hard-to-use freeware that has one of the worst websites I’ve ever seen for a business. I shudder to think that it was even more egregiously crowded when I first visited. ICQ used to be the only game in town, and they were pretty darned cool. But they sat on their laurels. AIM and Yahoo Messenger far outstrip ICQ for sheer usability, and have finally overtaken it in useful features as well. Yahoo has allowed offline messaging for a while, and recently added the ability to save a session. For me, that completely eliminates any need for the dinosaur that is ICQ. So if you have my number, lose it.
