Beatle, I suspect that that quote is from a board reg in disguise, as the AOL board’s address is kind of hard to come by. Basically, no one can find it except those who know about it already. It’s someone “in the know,” I bet.
“God would never let me be happy. He’d kill me first.”
“I thought you didn’t believe in God.”
“I do for the bad things.” - George Costanza
Well they can damn well go without me. It seems that AOL has “automatically updated” their system to kick ya off more often if you don’t use the AOL browser. It does this all the time now, anytime of the day or night. The last month or so has been especially bad - if you are using any other browser it used to show a pop-up window asking if you wanted to stay online but now it often doesn’t show anything at all: it just says “Goodbye!” and shows “your connection has been lost”. Often it “hangs” and you have to ctrl-alt-del to exit your AOL program, and then you can’t log back on for 15 or 20 minutes because the network still has your user ID as already active. That, coupled with the fact that complaints never get answered, and I can’t get on at all during prime time. Local ISP’s have better service and are five bucks cheaper a month, besides. I kinda doubt the merger is gonna fix all that. - MC
