(9:38:18 PM) Tyler: It's a linux alternative to AIM.
(9:38:31 PM) Tyler: When someone opens a box, and begins typing to me, nothing else, even if I have no conversation open
(9:38:45 PM) Tyler: an IM opens to them on proclaiming that I sense a disturbance in the force.
(9:38:47 PM) Tyler: How badass is that.
(9:38:54 PM) Lee: how cool!
(9:38:57 PM) Lee: i want that
(9:39:09 PM) Tyler: Look up PidGin, and the "psychic" plugin.
(9:39:23 PM) Lee: does pidgin work for pc?
(9:39:33 PM) Tyler: Pidgin is a wonderful, linux based, windows compatable alternative to AIM, and it can use multiple usernames on multiple networks.
(9:39:55 PM) Tyler: I am currently signed into two yahoo and MSN screen names and four AIM names, all under one buddy list, seamlessly working together.
(9:39:57 PM) Tyler: Yes.
(9:39:59 PM) Tyler: One moment.
(9:40:47 PM) Lee: if that thing has a blackberry program...wow.
(9:41:05 PM) Tyler: http://www
(9:41:14 PM) Tyler: It comes stock with dozens of plugins.
(9:41:21 PM) Lee: sweeeet
(9:41:22 PM) Tyler: It COMES WITH the psychic plugin.
(9:41:26 PM) Tyler: that's how ****ing awesome it is.
(9:41:27 PM) Tyler: for moar,
(9:41:31 PM) Lee: its like a firefox for messengers, it seems
(9:41:33 PM) Tyler: http://developer
(9:41:43 PM) Tyler: Yes, good analogy.
(9:41:53 PM) Lee: you, im sure, know the wonders of firefox
(9:42:02 PM) Tyler: The key to pidgin is taking the time to customize it.
(9:42:03 PM) Lee: fkn...forecast fox...fasterfox...session manager...
(9:42:07 PM) Tyler: it will do everything you want it to.
(9:42:10 PM) Lee: download manager.
(9:42:10 PM) Tyler: you just have to work on it
(9:42:14 PM) Lee: *nods*
(9:42:32 PM) Tyler: Most people think it's bland, as at stock, it's very simple and very basic.
(9:42:53 PM) Tyler: But you can make it do so many wonderful things with just some customization. Before that sounds intimidating I've only actually DOWNLOADED one plugin.
(9:43:04 PM) Tyler: Everythinge else is just activating the hidden things it ships with.
(9:43:27 PM) Tyler: The plugin I downloaded allows it to change my status to tell everyone what music I'm listening to.
(9:43:31 PM) Lee: nuh @ intimidating
(9:43:55 PM) Tyler: Well most people are turned off to linux, because the Linux OS and all it's programs start out about as exciting as the MS notepad program.
(9:44:10 PM) Tyler: But you tweak them and they evolve into very useful and versatile things.
(9:44:12 PM) Lee: its GOOD that way
(9:44:15 PM) Lee: you build it yourself!
(9:44:18 PM) Tyler: YES!
(9:44:19 PM) Lee: windows...bah...it has so much **** in it
(9:44:27 PM) Tyler: But people won't admit
(9:44:27 PM) Lee: you have to tear windows down to make it beautiful
(9:44:30 PM) Tyler: THEY LIKE that about Windows.
(9:44:38 PM) Tyler: It shows up like a ****ing peacock trying to mate with you. (Filter pwned this. Pea k0wk. The bird.)
(9:44:42 PM) Lee: exactly
(9:44:43 PM) Tyler: Consuming gigabytes of ram.
(9:45:21 PM) Lee: yeah fkn that
(9:45:23 PM) Lee: *fk that
(9:45:34 PM) Tyler: Pidgin is that pretty girl with no tatoos who just shows up naked and lays down on your bed, hands you a piercing gun, a tatoo gun, and her underwear, and says, "Do anything you want"
(9:45:45 PM) Lee: ill take her!
(9:45:49 PM) Tyler: YUH
(9:50:29 PM) Tyler: Whereas Windows shows up as a girl screaming random things at the top of her lungs, wearing 17 dresses and having fourty incredibly obnoxious tatoos, holdng a sign that says "I might not be legal".
