I love to hate AOL . . .

Spittoon When my friend Dee hates something, she will type something like WORD (spit!).  (She HATES Microsoft's WORD. I'm not sure what word processing program she uses but it is definitely NOT Word.)

Well, my primary access to the internet is via AOL and I've come to love and MOSTLY HATE it.

What I hate most, is that when my mailbox reaches 1000 emails, it shuts down.  Stops.  Ain't nothing going to to be accessible to me in any way, shape or form.

My husband doesn't understand why I would keep 700+ emails.  Well . . . I might need them.  There are wonderful messages, there are messages I want to go back to because they contain useful information.  There are links I might need to link to at another time.

AOL logo I've only hit the limit once, and it was a painful day or so.  But I seem to hover at the 900+ mark most of the time.  Why do I need these messages?  Why can't I chuck them?

I don't know. They are important and I want to keep them.

I think AOL should give us a bigger in-box.

Will that happen?  Probably not.  So there--AOL -- spit!

And what's bugging YOU today?
