AIM Bots Blocking

Hi folks, after years of virtually no bots, it seems there has been a definite uptick of them with AIM. I found the plug-in referenced here: http://adium.im/blog/2008/11/working-on-stopping-spam/ and I was SO looking forward to make them do some simple math to weed them out. Unfortunately, the plugi...

Re: Growl[1.2] installation pops up when helper app is stopped.

Actually, I've seen #2 as a regular growl user.

I have a TON of start up items. If Growl (1.2) has not yet been started, but is properly installed, and I fire up something like Adium, it offers to install Growl.

If I give my Mac time to finish it's startup routine, this does not happen.

Re: Notification script for Mail.app available

No offense to the Growl team, but that Mail plug-in has been sporadically wacky (for me) and always seems to break when someone in Cupertino just glances in its direction. The last time it broke, someone here wrote a pretty decent AppleScript that I've salted to my taste and I haven't looked back si...

Re: Growl not working for ichat 5.0 (Snow Leopard)

You probably want to go post that in the author's blog, as a comment to the latest Chax. He's pretty good about checking it for issues. http://ksuther.com/blog/ You can also read why he's now using an application loader instead of an Input Manager, hence your need to open Chax to use it with iChat r...

Re: What's this Message Window Style?

That's the Adium HUD Theme/Skin, and yes, Adium is hacked a bit. Some of the folks over at MacThemes are wizards. Here is the thread on the HUD theme.

Re: Superdrive Noise every 5 Minutes since 10.5.6 update

I had this too, I'm fairly certain it is OmniGrowl, possibly it's SMART check option. I turned that off specifically and a couple of other items I don't use and the drive is nice and quiet again.

Something has changed in 10.5.6 for sure, I never had this in 10.5.5.

Re: Growl + Vuze (Azureus)

I don't think Vuze has built in Growl support, it's done with the Ribbit plugin.

You should make sure you have the very latest plugin from the author's site here:

Re: Network notifications

I've tested it, and it works okay on my wired network but not Wired -> Wireless. My Linksys router is probably at fault here. I really think that Growl needs to have an "expert tab" or something for network notifications that allows a user to enter a static IP/hostname and port to forward ...

Re: Emoticons in the Contact List?

I'm not sure how fast it would be to run all of the status messages and display names visible in the contact list through the filtering mechanisms. It's possible, but probably not a very great idea. iChat does it. I hadn't used it in quite some time, when I noticed I found it quite... nice! I note ...
