Just in case anybody's been wondering, I decided a few weeks ago to quit instant messaging. I often find myself completely avoiding work by having largely shallow and irrelevant conversations on AIM, and as such, I've been thinking about swearing it off for a while now. So I did.
I thought I'd let you know so you don't take personal offense. Last week, I ran into a friend who thought I'd gone on an IM blocking vendetta. I didn't. I just refrain from signing on.
So, old friends, I guess we'll have to keep in touch the old-fashioned way: e-mail. If you don't have my e-mail address, post a comment and I'll make sure you get it.
