I had to try three computers in order to get signed up on AIM. Pop up blockers and "de-blockers" didn't seem to work very well. Finally I tried the graphics computer at PVLD. Now I can get it to work! When I sent a message to PVLD2007 I received a reply that PVLD2007 was signed out.
My daughter used AIM a lot at one point and some of her friends were always on IM. I know a few adults who communicate with distant friends this way too, or even do "business" via im-ing. It can be addictive!

I have used Wikipedia before to learn about a number of topics. It's a lot of fun to explore this online encyclopedia that is user-written. My username is Prairiechick and I edited a sentence or two on PVLD page for grammar. One needs a bit of caution, however, when using Wikipedia. It might be a good idea to research your question from other sources also but that's the case with most research. What a great tool for the surfing public, though!
