As I said, the network connection is fine- I kept ping running in a terminal window and saw no loss in connection. If it's a network issue, it'd have to be for less than a second (or affect only Aim traffic). Chax I will check out, though.

comment Quicksilver addons and plugins
That's somewhat true if you're only using Quicksilver as a launcher. It's considerably more than that. However, even just as a launcher, I've found quicksilver to be: -faster -smarter (pulling up apps + commonly used files, rather than just the best search match) -More adaptable (If you regularly type "pho" and switch down from the first result of Photobooth to the third result of Photoshop, it'll figure that out and start putting Photoshop first for "pho").
