Some rather significant changes happening over the past week. After having gutted and removing my Face Book account, I’ve now been removing all Instant Messenger accounts as well. Yahoo Instant Messenger will no longer be supported by Trillian as of tomorrow (8-5-2016) and that was one of the last chat accounts I had been using. Trillian was a great application for connecting to multiple chat accounts all in one package that had been recommended to me by a friend (and owner) over at G Squared Computing many years ago. But slowly over time… ICQ went dead (or at least nobody I knew was using it anymore), then AIM started to get real quiet and now this Yahoo thing. So I’ve ditched my ICQ and AIM accounts and tomorrow I’ll be ditching my Yahoo account. If you wish to chat online with me... just let me know and I'll tell how I'm doing this now and how you can connect with me.
To make things more interesting… there appears to have been a rather LARGE data breach of over 250 million Yahoo accounts. If you’re still using Yahoo Mail… you better change your password immediately.
