There seems to be a lot of Instant Messenger talk going on between Bruce Elgort and Alex Hernandaz. There are not the only ones looking at IM on their Blogs, I’ve been doing a bit of research myself.
I’ve looked at the Online Status Indicator tool and I’ve noticed a few things. First of all you don’t need to ‘register’ to use it. Just point to the URL and it works anyway. Secondly if uses a small bit of VBScript to start up MSN messenger so it should be fairly easy to make clickable links from that.
I’ll be working on it….
Sound great that your are doing all that research.
We are all anxious to see how to implement it.
