is quitting MSN.

EDITEDIT: Me and my fickle mind have decided that I should use my email address as my AIM screen name instead so that it is not so confusing, and so that people don’t think that I am showing off as a Mac user (well I do show off, but making people sign up to AIM so that I can slap them with my .Mac handle is way too much). Also, the email address goes nowhere, as my .Mac trial has ended eons ago. It is still better to have a handle where people can email me directly. Therefore, with immediate effect, my AIM handle is now my email address.

EDIT: AIM is actually more robust than GTalk from my testing. Therefore, I would recommend you contact me on AIM instead. You can sign up for an account and grab the client from Mac users can just use iChat. AIM also has a web client. You can also log on to AIM from Gmail. My screen name is

From today, I will be disconnecting from MSN. Having to support a dated and backward messaging protocol on my Mac has been painful to say the least. I am (was) currently piping my MSN through a Jabber server just so I can connect to MSN with iChat, and this implementation was far from convenient. Not to mention the very hacky address I need to enter in my address book for meta contacts, like Ugly? You bet.

Besides, the people I have on MSN either say retarded things, or are seldom online, or they simply do not reply. I do not see the point of me going through all the trouble for these people. Besides, the people I need to talk to are on GTalk AIM anyway. (they used both in case you are wondering)

So, if you have an urgent need to contact me, I am still available by most modern means, like GTalk AIM, Email, Facebook, Twitter and WhatsApp. Do NOT SMS me, unless you do not have an iPhone.

WhatsApp: my phone number

Besides Twitter, the notifications of all of the above are pushed to me. Meaning, once you click send, I will get it less than 5 seconds. All other social rules apply.
