Computer RIP AIM: AOL Instant Messenger is gone

Friday marks a sad day for fans of AOL's Instant Messenger: the service has been discontinued.

Users who visit AIM.com are redirected to a support with details on its demise.

I was planning on posting that but you beat me to it.

Meanwhile this board still gives us the option of including our AIM screen names and ICQ numbers in our profiles.

Apparently not, but I honestly had no idea they were still around. I tend to associate it with the late 1990s, like AIM. In fact I was using ICQ first, before I switched to AIM.
