My uncle Herbert(my dad's younger brother) came into Target Thursday, first time I'd seen him I think since my dad's funeral in 1991. I swear, the older that man gets, the more he could pass for Bob Hope's twin! Never told him that though, not sure how he'd take it!
I decided to compromise a bit on my chat software. I've been using "Trillian", and it all works fine except I can't get the minimumized windows in the IRC portion to flash when someone enters the room or leaves a message. So, I'm still using Trillian for AOL,Yahoo,ICQ,and MSN messengers, but went back to using "mIRC" for IRC. Just downloaded the newest version of mIRC, it finally sports a feature where you can set different "commands" when entering different servers, instead of just one set of commands that only applied to all.
