Bah. It's always annoying when your instant-messaging service loses connection right when you're going to say goodbye to someone - I mean, yes, you *were* just saying "okay, leaving now" but at least you'd let them know, right? Or you were planning to. Sorry Sarah, murphy's against me.

And while I realize I could have just logged on again, I decided to complain about it instead :P bah. Why can't the connections be a little more robust? In *theory*, internet stream connections are uncorruptable and uninterruptable, except by a total physical connection failure. I think. In practice . . . faugh :) Never works as well as in theory.

Once again, in theory, it's impossible to corrupt files transferred by any sane transfer protocol.

In practice, a program that I designed to assist in the repair of damaged files has been downloaded over 7,000 times as of last count.

Now, bed.
