View Full Version : Hows Aol 9.0 going?

November 3rd, 2003, 6:08 PM
AOL is a disgrace... It keeps throwing me offline and I keep getting "AOL have to reset your connection". Also sometimes, it says that main.idx database is croupted. I have to waste my time to fix the problem and I lost time to post at PC.

It also made my computer problems 10x worse.

Whats your comments about AOL 9

Edit: There...

I have 9.0, downloaded it about 2 months ago.

It works fine for me, nothing wrong with it.

I like al AOL things, but that's just me

My friend Tabitha has Aol 9.0 and let me tell you, It crashed her computer, thats why for her birthday she's getting Broadband Internet.

I love not having AOL. The way people talk about it, it seems like some sort of devil spawn. o_O;;

And never use Mcafee firewall on a Dialup or DSL connection. It will always throw you off AOL... which can become a pain in the neck.

I waste 2 minutes to get on AOL... :-\

AOL IS EVIL EVERYONE!!!! Thank god that I am going to get rid of it next summer.

Huney, if yout think AOL is bad, you should try Walmart-Connect >.<;; Its cheap, but its speed is so f-ed up that anyone would kills theirselves O.o;; I liked better AOL, it was at least a little bit quicker..

And Wal-Mart Connect keeps throwing me out all the time. That explains why I still have 160-something posts, if I had AOL, I'd at least have 300-something posts >.<;;


And worse, my parents won't let me get rid of it cus they say its the only crappy thing they can afford : P

But at least I got internet, and you do too, Haruka.

I mean, think about it, some little kids out there are dying to have internet access *believe me, I was one of them!* So at least be grateful you got crappy internet service, its better than no internet >.<;;

I'm also grateful to have crappy internet access. I remember always looking and picking fights with kiddies who had internet acces ;_; Waaaa.. I was soo lonely :(

Anyways, wal-mart connect sux

Don't download AOL!!!! It's a very buggy, bad, isp... Never use aol... use Earthlink or MSN Instead.

I prefer AOL, and I heard DSL is even better cus its faster. Is it true?

*gets killed by DSL*


November 5th, 2003, 2:47 PM

Watch the language.

Btw, we already know that AOL is poorly coded, full of memory leaks, slow, full of bloat, and damages over 200 windows files thus making Windows less stable.

The crashes aren't MS's fault. I say we should take a survey of all of the people complaining about constant crashes to see how many of them use AOL. Anyway, the only way feasible way to fix them are to reinstall Windows.

Still, people! I prefer AOL than Walmart Connect. It's the crappiest thing you can ever afford >.<;; So beware!!!

My parents can't afford DSL!! >.<;; I heard Yahoo's got a special on it, but it's 29.99 for the first year, it originally costs 39.99 or sumthin like that.. Can someone tell me what's the cheapest DSL available?!

I have AOL 8.0 I tried downloading 9 but it didn't work :p AOL used to give me a lot of problems but it's gotten better. It's free until December ! ^_^

DSL is nice, but if you live in suburbia, it gets slooow. And when it gets slow, you'll wish you had sprung for a cable conection.

AOL is terrible. In Australia, we're still stuck on V7 - it's horribly buggy and crashes all the time. So I reverted to V6 - it crashes all the time as well, although not as much.
