Broadcast notification style messages in iChat
Here’s a fun iChat trick I never knew about.
If you type /me followed by anything, it puts your name into the iChat window followed by the text in a notification style just like the “Soandso is now online.” and “Soandso is now offline.” This only works with iChat to iChat, other IM clients will simply see the ‘/me is saying hello!’ text written out.
I found this trick on Andy Ihnatko’s blog, and the attached screenshot is from there too. You learn something new every day!
