Or you could have been getting Admin Chated, or even gone thru a few BBS
Doors to get there. 

Remeber Genie back in 86 or so, they had the Icon Head chat roundtable
thing, each person was a series of icons that changed by emotion code
(happy, sad etc etc)

Of course there was always just writting to a tty, wall em if you got em.

Bottom line is this, The IM thing is a freaking fruity marketing wet dream
with protocol whores falling over hypophiliacs to see who can pull the
othres pud across the greatest distance and yet still get a little on em.

Lets face it bub, multimedia chat is called TRIBES 2, so deal with the
fact of being so far behind the curb 12 years old laugh at the whole IM
thing.

Fuck, if its gonna be that hyped you can be damn sure someone is gonna get
a laser stuck up somewhere, and they have made it so.
