Recently, I started using IM over a VNC connection on my laptop. And I'm beginning to see a major downside: if I fall asleep in the middle of IMing (yes, I am often that tired), I'll never know about it, and people will still think I'm online. (Apologies, then, if you see me online but I don't respond for many hours; that's the most likely cause.)( Now the geek stuffCollapse )
Hopefully, from now on, I'll have fixed the problem and this sort of thing won't be happening again. We'll see. Having said that, I'll be online on much fewer nights now; being kept up till 2 in the morning isn't really my cup of tea, I'm afraid.
On the other hand, if you really want to talk to me, just send me an SMS saying so, and I'll go online. Just for you. :-)
