ICQ sux

Truly it does. Spent all morning fighting with it, having it stuff up my logs, that sort of thing.

I think now I have a workable solution with 2003b in one directory and v5 in another. I'll fire up v5 to try multi-user chats, but will use 2003b as my main version.

And just to throw everyone into confusion, ICQ just started working again. No changes to my system whatsoever. So I reckon it must have been something on ICQ's end.

Grunties!

So this morning I decided to reboot my computer as it was running out of memory. But when I came back, ICQ crashed just after it started - Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library - Runtime Error! - abnormal program termination. Well I didn't have too much time to fiddle with it, but it crashed a couple of times, so I tried reinstalling over the top. No good.

So then at work today, I installed NAV 10 and rebooted. And ICQ started crashing there too! Tried a dbconvert to reindex the database, but that didn't work.

I use 2003b at home and 2002a at work. I thought it might have had something to do with the latest NAV def files. Who knows.

So now my major lifeline to the world has been cut off, and other "issues" I have right now, life is pretty sucky right now.

Feeling grumpy.

At least the backups started working after a reboot on one server and a cancel and restart on the other.

Sigh.
