Once upon a time, I had AIM, ICQ, and mIRC all running all the time, and I discovered that as my skills as a social butterfly went up, my ability to actually do anything went way down. So now I do 99% of my conversing with anybody via e-mail.
So please don't feel snubbed because I decided to chat with Vince for 20 minutes last night for the first time in three weeks. -.- If you really want to communicate with me about something, send me an e-mail! firstname.lastname@example.org
