So in very nerdy, but cool news...I found a kick-ass AIM plug-in program thing that takes away advertisements, logs IMs and chats, and allows for very easy clone use. Like *click* *poof* new window. And this way, I can be signed on two names simultaneously without a) using two different computers and b) worrying about the other one freezing itself to death (as it does when it's running anything more complex than MS Word.
There's also a think called ghost which I believe takes that Winamp3 transparency thing. But I haven't found a use for this yet, nor have I played with it much. We'll see about that later.
