Info Lookup for contacts not on list

Postby tedger » Sun Dec 05, 2004 7:53 pm

This isn't really a request for myself but from a slightly less tech savvy friend that I got to use Adium instead of the official client (ewww).

Anyways last night I noticed her signing on with an old account and I asked her why. Apparently she was logging in to the official AIM client to check the away message/profile of someone not in her buddy list (why I have no idea). I believe (although I'm not positive) that this is implemented in Gaim, and I think that at least for some would be useful in Adium.

Are you sure it works in Gaim? I'm not positive but I believe I tried this a while back and couldn't get Gaim's AIM oscar code to do it... perhaps on other protocols it does?

Just asked a friend running lunix x86 (version 1.0.1) and Gaim and he says that it's working for him and I'm fairly sure that it worked when I was using Gaim on my computer.

Mark of Gaim fame (that was fun to say) was kind enough to email me some info on this; I'm working on it :)

One of his roommates is an Adium fan (*waves*) whom I've talked to online a couple times and who showed him this thread... I think that's schnazzy.
