I hope I'm not breaking a rule or stepping on toes... Anyone here remember the days when Yahoo chat wasn't populated entirely by bots? When you could have a serious discussion about anything with a REAL PERSON? Well...I sort of miss those days and as good as these forums are, it's tough to beat the live, one-on-one (or group) interaction from the chats and IM software. So is there anything usable out there these days? Doesn't look like :sf has a chat...and I have my moments of loneliness and boredom when it would really bring me up (in more ways than one!).
