Re: Microsoft ditches Windows Live Messenger for Skype

I came here looking for an official reaction to this news. Found only this post - I'm kinda worried since I use MSN daily to communicate with colleagues working from home or on the road. I'd rather keep using Adium obviously - even if I might have to jump through some burning loops over at Skype or ...

Re: Interface for ICQ blocks does nothing

Damn, I just closed the screen. Could it be that simple?

But then again, with no selection... shouldn't the authorize button be greyed out as well? 8-)

Re: Interface for ICQ blocks does nothing

Bumping this, because the amount of ICQ requests from dodgy Russians is increasing. Why present this dialog when only "authorize" is enabled?! >:o

Interface for ICQ blocks does nothing

I'm on the latest Adium version. I still get spammy requests on ICQ (even though it is set to allow only contacts on my list). Anyway, I get this dialog screen: http://imgur.com/9TFFX.png The options Ignore and Deny are greyed out (I can click the icons however). I can only click Authorize, basicall...

Re: Supress Growl notifications for buggy users

Yes, I knew that. =-) But there are no options of use: http://imgur.com/1wqVr.png What I need is an option "don't do anything" / "don't display notification" or anything to supresses the Growl notification I have set for all users. [edit: maybe I can hack it with 'show contact li...

Supress Growl notifications for buggy users

I have been testing Aadvark (http://www.vark.com) and I found that their bot keeps logging off and on. This triggers constant Growl notifications. I can set notifications for all users that sign on, but I haven't found a way to set " don't display any sign on/sign off Growl notifications for th...

Re: Suddenly ICQ keeps asking for login?

I had this problem too, but it seems to have resolved itself.

Typed 'icq' into search.twitter.com and quickly found that many people (also non-Adium) were having problems. There's a Dutch saying that "shared grief is halve the grief." =-)

That's it, thanks! I've downgraded to 1.3.1 for now and can at least work with Adium until there's a solution. Thanks GusGus!

Re: Error: Unable to retrive MSN Address Book

Chiming in: same problem (I'm in The Netherlands). Tried a number of different things but because today I work from home it's my lifeline to colleagues so I'm now on the Mac MSN Messenger (o the horror!).

Hope I can go back to the clean lines of Adium soon... :/

Re: Logs filled with 'cmdproc.c' entries

Thanks Robby! I didn't think to look in Trac, d'oh. I had only searched this forum. O:)

So it's basically only polluting the logs and nothing worse than that? It makes a mess of my system.log at the moment. :\

Logs filled with 'cmdproc.c' entries

Hi! Because a program (not Adium) was acting up I had a look in the Console and found hundreds of entries like: Sep 10 06:29:29 AcidBox [0x0-0x18f18f].com.adiumX.adiumX[4418]: INFO cmdproc.c:98:show_debug_cmd() C: 000: PNG Sep 10 06:29:49 AcidBox [0x0-0x18f18f].com.adiumX.adiumX[4418]: INFO cmdproc....

1.3: strange message on disconnect of contacts

I've upgraded to Adium 1.3 and it works okay. It had split my contact list into two groups but that was quickly remedied. I however see one (minor) new and strange thing... I have not set any events for contacts that sign off, but when one does I get a Growl notification with the contact name and &q...

Hi. I'm bumping this, since the last couple of weeks are absolutely horrific with ICQ requests from Russian spammers. >:o The problem is as described: I can block them by changing the setting but it doesn't stick.

Re: Adium Privacy Settings (blocking ICQ)

This thread is over a year old. I'm on Adium 1.2.4 now, but I still have the exact same problem. After a sleep / reboot / offline-online by Adium, the privacy settings revert to one that allow ICQ Russians *not on my contact list* to try and add me or annoy me with spammy messages. So, is there *any...

Re: GrowlTunes not showing notifications...

Do you have a Logitech mouse by any chance? And use the Logitech Control Center (it should be under System Preferences)? Version 2.4 of the Logitech Control Center disables Growl notifications (though not *just* in GrowlTunes) for some unfathomable reason. The solution is to remove /Library/InputMan...

Yay! I'm so glad it was relatively simple to restore Growl functionality after the LCC installation. :grin:

Kinda dumb that it interferes so with Growl. I needed LCC, since OS X does not support the tilt function of my MX400 without LCC, apparantly.
