Our Gift To You


Head Guru
 Share

Recommended Posts

Many have asked about the nifty little offline/online graphics that each guru has in their signature line.

 

There is a custom bit of software that we have installed on a dedicated server and are now offering it to all our clients to use for free.

 

If you would like to use the offline/online in your sig line, your web pages or whatever please feel free to do so. We did not code the software, its GNU freeware, we are simply providing the server on which it runs.

 

To use this you need to go to;

 

http://www.tchstatus.com:8080

 

And follow the simple instructions.

 

Enjoy!

Wow, thanks Head Guru Bill! This is a test. I think. I AM online on my AIM account, but I don't know if it will work!

 

;) Jennifer

 

 

Huh, it says I'm offline.

 

Ok, that was a Privacy issue in my iChat... just selected to make my privacy level allow anyone. Whew, thanks for the help!

As Jennifer said, sorta, you have to set your IM settings to allow anyone to see that you are online. If you only let your buddies see your status then the little program can't see that you are online.

Update to my previous question. I found a service to use for this. But will TCh offer this service to use for MSN, since 1) I found that the other services msn button looks like !""#&!" and 2) i figure it will go faster if all icons are from same server?

Well, that kinda makes it a grrr (frustrating, not angry) situation... If you have folks on your ignore list, then you are disabling that list as you can ONLY have it set to allow EVERYONE to see you.

 

Oh well... trade offs are a part of life :)

I have only been with TCH for the past week or so, but i can honestly say that it has been one of my best decisions. Thanx again.

 

Well that didn't exactly work the first time! ;)

 

Thanks once again.

any chance that server is loaded...i'm getting broken images and sometimes an incorrect status. Its either that, or the server thats on has some packet loss coming towards my isp...i wouldn't doubt it...my isp is p00p. Just started happening in the past few days.

Maybe moving the computer to another room may help!

 

 

:)

 

 

Great Idea, but then I would not be able to have no fun on the PC, My Parents would be able to see everything.

 

No More Yahoo! Chatrooms after 12:00 at night ;)

 

LOL!

Some of it I think is yahoo itself. Since Online Status still has to connect to the IM providers to get the actual status, it is still problematic if the service is.

 

My status icons are using a script I've been writing (experimenting with improving the responses) and I've noticed that the last several days Yahoo has been very inconsistant with responding to queries and thus had similar problems as the tchstatus service... one of the reasons I have now added status caching in my script :) ... if there's a 2 minute lag in what my status shows, that's worth it to have instant responses to displaying the images... in most cases... still have to work out a couple things, like the attempts to update the cache can still take some time if the respective IM service is not responding well).

Did you take a look at what TCH-Jim said a while back? Make sure your settings are correct. :lol:
