I've had my current screename of Vryodd since AOL V.1!! Back then you could only have max of 6 letters.. it was basic but extraordinary! Just to make some of you feel a bit old.. I was in 7th grade then! So I've had access to the internet since I was in middle school!
Well, the good thing about chat'n online is now seen in the growing popularity of text messaging! The information is usually to the point, no awkward silences, you can see what you want to say before you send it... it all very cowardly actually... but it works!!
