Kewl. I did some editing with Aol's most awesome Instant Messenger Sidebar and viola ! We have an online detector in the sidebar ! I figured I wouldn't be the only one who'd want this, so as soon as I rewrite my code for clarity and efficiency, I'll post the directions on how to add the detector to your AIM sidebar ... I'm wondering why the people at AOL haven't done this already !

I wish they would, because I'm having trouble anti-aliasing the dang letters on these images to make them look like they belong in the sidebar...

OH IMPORTANT NOTE: in order for your online detector to work properly, YOU MUST SET YOUR ACCOUNT TO ALLOW ANYONE TO CONTACT YOU, but FORTUNATELY, that DOES NOT mean turning off your "ignore" list .
I repeat,
that DOES NOT mean turning off your "ignore" list .
those two settings are in different places, so you should have no trouble figuring out which is which. If you know what you're doing however, and don't want to wait for me to post my code, then just go to my website and grab the images
Or, conversely, if you don't know what you're doing but really want them added to your AIM-remote now, just post a comment and I'll send you the info, but I'm not sure when I'll get to it. But I'll do that AFTER I redesign my links and left-sidebar. Or maybe not ... who knows. Finally, if you don't even want the AIM Remote (but it's so cool ! =P who wouldn't want it? ) Then you can go here for a small and lite online detector for *any* of your favorite major Instant Messenger services !
By the way, I added a new link to the links list: Kinetic Sage & Company's online RPG

Later !

Oh, ps - Joanne (UW jo, not UA jo) if you don't make some sort of web log soon, I'm going to post your tales up here ! ! ! Muwa ha ha ha =P
