AIM+ would have to add specific commands. I don't think it would be possible to create a %z and have the user decide what action AIM would take. Do we get to choose what letter we want to use, for each specific task? Big-O would have to program specific types of things that could be expanded and then assign letters (variables) to them. Or would we choose which variable we want to use for them?

Er, I'm not sure how to word my thoughts correctly, I hope this makes some sense and isn't too repetitive. I had a long day in classes.

oh and have random maybo joke %'s

like you just place a %j and it reads from a updatable db and echos it.


another idea is say you your away message on, and active on another clone, you can tell it to talk to that by some how checking which away emssages are on and which are not, display the ones that are not.

and if you tie in a whats playing feature, you can definitly add %q and whatnot easier

If this is referring to my post, I don't know if it works that way. I just always assumed.

%u(time_here)

shows how long until you will be back

ex.

input-Its %t, I will be back in %u(6:30)
output-Its 6:00, I will be back in 30 minutes

something like that...
