I am going to take an axe to this fucking machine, I swear!

We installed Trillian, because we thought it would be easier to manage the various IM accounts with that one. Now this fucking thing keeps telling me it can't connect to my AIM because I've put in the wrong password. Well, I haven't! It's the right password, I even c&p'ed it.

*growls* For someone who used to be able to talk to machines, this is all very frustrating.

AIM is furioisly Anti-Trillian, so they keep deliberately finding ways to sabotage it by altering and upgrading their own code. Trilian will come up with a patch to fix it, then AIM will find some new way to sabotage it again. I'm surprised that old war is still going on. It was why we gave up using Trillian two or three years ago

What really vexes me is that it's only my password that isn't accepted. Draco, Malak, Fireez... they don't have any problems with it. But then I try to set up my account, and things go fucked.

I figured Trillian was

1) Too difficult to download on my horrible connection

2) Too much trouble to keep up with all the different windows.

It was easier for me to make little custom emoticons for them to use when one of them says something.

I figure if someone wants to talk to any of my voices they are more than welcome to use my screen name. Hell, my voices are used to sharing anyway, they don't really have any objections - and I'm used to sharing with them, of course.

(Though my Messenger has been quite dead lately ;_; )

We use trillian for AIM, and I use it for yahoo. But I still use regular msn. I won't use msn on trillian. I wouldn't even use trillian for anything, but its easier than having MSN, AIM, and Y! all running seperately.

Its given me password issues before and I was forced to change my password.

We use GAIM. It's like Trillian, but not. And it's a lot less pissy than normal AIM.

I believe it's but I could be wrong.

(Yeah, that's the right address. You need to download GTK+ stuff, but it's worth it.)

Well, it just downloaded some update or other, so I guess I'll just try again. *laughs* But I already had to promise Fireez that I wouldn't hurt her laptop if it doesn't work. I think I'll just punch the sofa instead.
