Trillian is a Good IM Service
Maybe you've heard of it, maybe you haven't, but for those unaware, Trillian started as a 3rd party client for IM services such as ICQ, YIM, and AIM. Its purpose was to give you one place to sign into multiple IM services as well as extra looks and features not provided by the original IM clients. As it grew it started it's own proprietary IM service, which currently works to this day. And it's Good. And you should get it. https://trillian.im/ If you're looking for a classic IM service along the lines of AIM, YIM or MSN, I highly recommend getting Trillian. Heck I recommend it as a form of emergency contact. I can easily use Trillian any ti

Art Site Expereinces
I've been on the internet for about 22 years, and in that time I've used an absurd amount of art galleries. In light of this, I thought it might be of interest to myself and also others, that I list all these services I've used and write up a little blurb about the service and/or my experiences with it.

While many know this is not a polite thing to do, I feel there are many out there that still don’t quite understand why ‘free advertisement’, as some call their re-posting, has little to no value to a creator. I think the first problem comes from the misunderstanding of advertisement and why it has value. Advertisement is a lucrative business, people pay money for others to see their works, products or what have you. This leads people to think that advertisement, thus 'exposure&#

Enabler
Among many of my friends I'm known for being 'the Enabler'. This usually refers to the fact that I very easily and blatantly not only encourage but actively take part in assisting friends to pursue the most indulgent thing they want to do. (provided it's not harmful to them or others, of course) Be it personal projects, experiences, hopes, and dreams, or even just something goofy. Many of them probably don't even know why I do it, what my motivation is, honestly, no one's ever asked or questioned it. One part is I'm genuinely enthused by what people like and enjoy, even when it's not my specific niche, and I'm pretty sure that my genuine ent
