New Address -- For those of you on the Internet, my address shrank recently, so you can now send email to <firstname.lastname@example.org> although mail to the old address will still be forwarded. I'm also planning to do a series of short articles on the various electronic services with an eye to how they interconnect and where TidBITS is stored on each one, so stay tuned.
Always Show Recipient In iChat
In iChat under Snow Leopard, choosing View > Always Show Recipient Bar puts a buddy's status message and color at the top of any iChat window. It can also be used to select among multiple open iChat logins you have to send a message to that buddy, or to select among multiple accounts you have registered in Address Book for that buddy.
