The all new AOL 9.0 OPTIMIZED!  
I just updated my AOL client at work. Exactly which part of this program is optimized?

The part that simultaneously crashed every other program running?

The part that added about three dozen new programs at startup?

Or maybe it was the part that took over my internet explorer, reset my homepage from "about:blank" to, turned off my Yahoo! toolbar and replaced it with its own. And oh, thanks for reseting my IE toolbar settings from their carefully sculpted one line back to the default settings. I'm eternally grateful for THAT one.

Oh, wait, I know... the optimized part must be the part where it installed 50 million icons EVERYwhere faster than ever before. No, seriously, I just went to the bathroom, two AOL icons fell out of my boxers. AND I'm pretty sure I just burped up an ICQ one.

Mood: bouncy

haha, very funny description of a very faulty program.
'Optimized' is just another AOL lie ;)

Poor AOL, it should treat its paying customers better.

I hope it works out better for you soon at least.

Thankfully I only need it for work.

I mean they do a pretty good job with AIM (I mean they created instant messaging as we know it), but the AOL client. woa.
