I have just finished a new program that deals with away messages, many more options and commands will be added if this program is popular enough. What it basically does it allows you to change your away message from any webbrowser. Some people might find this useless while others will love it. It's already completed and working. http://www.thej3w.net/aim the address remoteaim.tk does work but has some logging in problems for some reason so I'll fix that later. But what you need to do is register, download the program, run it, enter your username and password for the site, then just have it sit in your systray. To change your away message goto the site, login and send it a message using the forms. A few problems like if you have a router, the site has a small help that is kinda useful but isn't at the same time if you need help please goto my other forum at http://www.thej3w.net/forum and sign up there and post your problems. other features i plan on adding is the ability to see who has messaged you and what they said and even the ability to change your message with a text messages. give me your comments and problems here if u dont feel like signing up on the other forum[/url]

Sounds like a pretty cool idea :D, but i don't like the part about it running through a "middle man" of a server that's not my own.

Any chance this could be ported to a self-serve program?

That's a really cool thing though, I've wanted something like this before so I can change my away message when it's incorrect hehe.

I feel the same way as Jon. It would be useful to me, but I would like to run it myself instead of having to patch it through someone else... I think if you made it an actual broadcasting/recieving application you would make many people much happier.

Yea, something Like a Bot that you run on your computer, and it sends who has IMed you to some type of server, and a way to IM the progam from a designated Screen name like... "Designated S/N:Set Away; BBL" Something like that would be great.
And it dosent work for me, I run the prog, enter in my username, which i signed up for at your site, and my password and hit "Start". When I try too log in at the web site, it says "You Need To Be Logged In!" I Hope this gets fixed because it seems like a good program.

the problem with it being its own server is that people wont know what an IP address is, so they would need to login to the site and send the message that way. however it would be really easy to have the program be its own server but its the whole problem with IPs, the program updates your IP address automaticly incase it chaged during the day and you didnt know, and for the whole thing that lets u see an away message for a certain person, i dont know if that can be done, it uses the aim away message command thingy. i could be wrong though

And about the login thing, most of the time when you login it wont work if youre using the remoteaim.tk try http://www.thej3w.net/aim

OK , that fized my login problem and the program works, but couldn't you try to make one for people who have a IP that dosen't change, i know mine dosen't and people that dont have a perminant IP should just use the other version? and one more thing, can you make an option so the little icon dosent have to be in the system tray? This would be a good prank. :cheesy: :wink:

Edited :!!!!!!! blah

Well *you* could write a small webserver app and add it to your program. Its easier that way , a user could just type http://IPaddress:80 , login , and change whatever he / she wants.

Just an idea :roll:

This looks like a really awesome program. It would be awesome if you could set that up for IPs that are static because I have one and it has been what it is ever since I got it.

Looks great!

I am working on the program now, what I am adding is. The ability to set a time of how many minutes untill you return, the ability to change the port if you have a static IP, the ability to set an away message to go on at a certain time from the website or program it self and the ability to leave a certain away message for certain people. Any questions or comments feel free to ask. Or any other ideas?

UPDATE!

I got the scheduled times and the countdown to work not 100% but close. For some reason you have to send all the commands to the program at once like the time, the message the username and the password, all of it or it will reset all the stuff and it will only do what u last sent. so basically lets say you wanted to have a scheduled time and you wanted to put up another away message before that one. if you dont send both of them at once then the program will only do the last thing set, so you have 2 choices you could either send the message then the scheduled time or you could send both at the same time. i will work on this and hopefully have a better working one out later, and the code for the built in server is a little to buggy right now but i will work on it

Another Edit

I figured out why all the forms were getting deleted, I had them get clearned cause of cookies, but if I remove the code for the cleaning of the forms then the forms can only hold data once. I might have found a work around for this but I dont think it will work all the time, I will continue to test and try things tonight

What does everyone think I should do? Are these things even needed? If I can only keep one, what one should I keep?

version 2.0 is out! it has many new things still no server that allows u to run it your self, but what it does have is. The ability to have an away message go up at a certain time, the ability to have it countdown in minutes till your return, the ability to have a special away message for 1 person and of course the abilty to change your away message from a webbrowser. Please if you experience any problems let me know my SN is M1cr0s0ftD3m0n and I will be more then happy to help you out.

Actually I forgot but the program will crash if you do the special away message. For somereason it doesn't like the % symbol. I will figure out how to fix this as soon as possible. Most people prolly wouldnt use this feature anyways.

Ok that feature is fixed for the most part, only problem is you can't have any text after the § symbol or your message will get cut off. I have the program convert the § to %n before sending out the message.
