In trying to watch a team game on FICS, I ran up against
a limitation of eboard: either the channel tells go
to a separate pane, which you have to keep switching from
the game board to read, or they go to a detached console,
where they get mixed up an any other channels you might be
I wrote up the attached diff and xpm files,
which add a button next to the little trash
can, which opens a separate window for the observed channel.
Clearly, if you're listening to all x channels, having a separate window
open for each one is madness. But in cases like the above,
it might be helpful.
I talked to Pulga on FICS about it, and he had another idea: add
filtering (like user-specified regexps, buttons to toggle what
stuff goes in, etc.) to the console. This seems like a pretty interesting
way to go, but I thought I'd post this in hopes it might be useful
in the meantime.
