Something is boggling The Hek's mind and it has to do with MSN. Could someone explain the difference between being "away" and being offline?
The Hek sees no difference at all.
Last night, I was online and for most of the night, almost all of my contacts who were online at the time were listed as "away." And I'm not talking about a few people; there was at least 20-30 people who did this. I don't get that. If you're not going to be at your computer and/or talking on MSN, why would you bother to sign in?
What does the "away" status tell us anyway? I don't have time to be at the computer but I'll still sign in so you know I'm there; even though you can't talk to me? If I choose not to be on MSN, I just don't sign in. In fact, I've rarely used the "away" status.
Busy, On The Phone, BRB; that makes sense. The "away" status when you think about it, is a complete contradiction.
In other news: The Hek has received yet another injunction. This time in regards to IGL.
And finally: Need a problem solved? Ask a ninja!
