AIM now has 250 max buddies!
Big news today for AIM Buddy List enthusiasts on juberti's AOL Journal:
I've said it before - there's going to be a lot of great stuff coming out of AOL this summer. Today's improvement is a new buddylist limit of 250 buddies per list (up from 200).
Cool! I know I've neared the 200 limit on my personal Buddy List, especially after AOL started that whole Recent Buddies group. (By the way, did you know that AOL has a registered trademark on the phrase Buddy List?)
For BuddyGopher, this means that capacity behind the biggest custom-built Buddy List in the entire world just increased by 25%. Our server can now support 1,250,000 unique AIM buddy names. Thanks AOL! We're all looking forward to AIM 6/Triton.
We're still looking for BerkeleyDB and Perl programmers. If you've got experience with memcached, let's go on a date.
