A Sametime plugin for Trillian


By David Gewirtz

It appears our fascination with hacking Sametime hasn't abated. After we ran last week's Fun with Sametime and Skype article, reader Janna Roosje asks:

I don't care about using Skype. I like my regular phone. But I really love Trillian because I can IM to all different kinds of IM clients. Except Sametime. What can I do to add Sametime to Trillian?

Fortunately, programmers will be programmers and there was someone out there who also wanted to create a link between Sametime and Trillian. We're not big Trillian users here (IM is a big distraction when you're a writer), but we did find STPlugin, a Sametime plugin for Trillian.

See the link below and let us know what you think. It seems pretty full-featured. The only thing it lacks, apparently, is Sametime's private messaging capabilities. So watch what you say, and enjoy.
