Maybe it’s the influence of my employers, but I’m really starting to get annoyed with client-side apps and craving more server-side solutions. I just formated the hard drive on my home computer and am trying to rebuild it, but restoring all my settings and history from IE, icq, AOL IM, and Eudora is a pain in the ass. Why can’t profiles, nicknames, address book lists, and settings be stored on servers somewhere? Why on earth are all my icq and IM friends stored on the client, and not on AOL’s servers? At least my bookmarks are back.
