The End of an Era

I know, you (the reader) knows simming and AOL were joined at the virtual hip years ago. Eventually AOL cut simming lose as it became clear with unlimited high speed internet it wasn't cost viable to support simmers anymore.

Some simmers and groups still used AOL's vaunted AIM system to make chat rooms, to sim. To be candid I miss those days still in a sense, where there were chat rooms online, where if someone was out of line they got spanked, but that's a topic for another day. Heck, I miss the days where you had to write a letter that was clear and concise and not everyone was available in real time.

As of December 15th, 2017 AIM will be shut down by AOL.

Well go in peace AIM, and here is to the hopes that one day something like AOL's old chat rooms does come to be, since as much as I love the wonders of the new net, there are times when I miss parts of the old one.
