As you may have noticed, I’ve been complaining more and more about my Eee’s increasingly faltering reliability in keeping apps running. I know, the 701 wasn’t made for multitasking, and that I should really upgrade my netbook.
So I ditched Pidgin for Miranda IM, and frankly, even if that IM client has been stable, it’s so barebones I felt like I was back in 1999.
That was until I heard that Digsby, formerly the memory hog of web IM software, has cut its usage by 50%. So I reinstalled it, and yes, it is working way faster than ever!
I still haven’t uninstalled Miranda in case Digsby goes wonky on me, but so far it’s been good to me.
