“I couldn't live a week without a private library
- indeed, I'd part with all my furniture and squat and sleep on the floor
before I'd let go of the 1500 or so books I possess.” ― H.P. Lovecraft

Whistling In The Graveyard

Saturday, July 03, 2004

Ok, Nate is out of the hospital and out at his Grandmother's house for the weekend.

I got my car back today. The window now works, the power steering now works, and tomorrow I get to put the door interior back together. That should be fun since it's been over a year since I took it apart.

And on a totally different note, I have to thank Michael Moore for something.

He inspired me to get Y!Tunnel.

For those of you who don't know or just don't use Yahoo messenger, Y!Tunnel is basically a hacked version of Yahoo's messenger. The primary benefit of which is it cuts out all of the fucking ads.

Why do I have to thank Moore? Because one night I signed on to my favorite chatroom, Religion1, and I was assaulted by a huge picture of his doughnut-glazed pie-hole while waiting to connect.

Since getting it I've noticed a few things. For example: when you used to sign in, you just went right in. Then after one of thier 'upgrades' there was a 'loading' screen you had to wait through and look at ads. I wondered if something about the upgrade made signing on more complicated thus making the sign on longer.

Well it didn't.

They did it just so they could put Michael Moore in my face. It's a goddamn left-wing conspiracy.

Anyways, I sign on immediately now. Also, there are no longer banner ads at the bottom of the screen. Also blocked are the ads that try to squeeze in OVER the banner and crowd the chat screen into nothing.

Basically what I'm saying is download Y!Tunnel. If you use AOL there's AIM AD-HACK which does the same thing.

They're worth it.
