Tech this and shove it - new MSN address

Back in secondary school, for a "street theatre" festival, I wrote a short play that involved a guy being strangled by an extension cord as a sort of commentary on the stifling effects of technology. (Not very subtle, but hey, I was 13.) These days, technology seems determined to strangle me. Just when I was getting mad at Apple for totally screwing up my Macbook, Microsoft reliably screws up as well.

The story: I get a message from my MSN Messenger saying that I have to change my e-mail ID to connect (I was using a Yahoo account as my MSN e-mail ID, and I suspect the new integration of Windows Live Messenger with Yahoo Messenger was confusing for the program). Which is fine, MSN promises me all will be well and my contact list will be intact.

Well, it is intact, that much I'll grant. But now no one can see me online - nor can I see anyone online. Bloody bleeping hell. I'm in an IM world of its own. An IM singularity. I M lonely.

So, if you're on my MSN list, just add me again at dsng [at] messengeruser.com.



Only the lonely
Know the way I feel tonight
Only the lonely
Know this feeling ain’t right ...


"Well, it is intact, that much I'll grant. But now no one can see me online - nor can I see anyone online. Bloody fucking hell. I'm in an IM world of its own. An IM singularity. I M lonely."

heh. :) Don't mean to be unsympathetic or anything, but you're really funny when you're peeved.

juke: thanks a lot, now I have the "dum dum dum dum-dee-doo-wah" refrain in my head.

mis_nomer: thanks :)

ngader: really? seems to work for others. Try again?


Glad you removed the f word, 'twas most unworthy of thee.


That was a compliment, btw.
