IM technology has taken SEVERAL steps backwards in the past decade.  Ugh.  *throws up arms*  Back in my day, we had sensible contact lists, groupings, text formatting, reliable offline message delivery that WORKS (and informs you of when it's being used), all in a nice little desktop client that conveniently resided on the side of your screen.  Even ICQ was better than this nonsense.

I know I've always said that technology has made it more difficult to connect with people, but I never meant it this literally.  Ugh!

    1. Not just Skype, but gtalk too! Moving to their new hangouts API has caused all sorts of ruckus for those of us who don't do the whole browser-based-chat thing.
