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.

AccessPC Documentation

The manual is short but helpful and generally well-written. I didn't notice any errors and Insignia provided a short index. I'm glad Insignia included the Errata sheet, because it explained a few things that the manual glossed over or had changed since Insignia printed the manual. Probably the best thing that I can say about the manual was that I haven't looked at it until today, over a month after I installed AccessPC. I didn't run into anything strange or unpleasant while using AccessPC that required explanation from the manual.
