Ya know, as geeky as I am now, I used to be much more so. Back in high school, I used to dream of the day I'd be able to have high speed internet access and constant instant messaging access. Back then, technology seemed to move so stinkin' slow.
Now... notsomuch. My phone came out of the box with access to several instant messaging programs, and I never really use that feature much. WiFi is getting much more widespread, but I don't leave the house with my laptop... well... ever, really.
