A Sametime plugin for Trillian

DOMINOPOWER Q&A

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.
