As you know, Fire comes ready to go out of the box with 4
Statuses: Available, Away, Busy, Invisible.
Adding statuses in addition to these is really easy.
So I've added Away, Idle, and Busy.
Now they appear below the first list.
That's kind of dumb isn't it?
Anyway, in the spirit of object oriented programming,
perhaps it would be prudent to create those ready-to-go
statuses as fully editable status items, so that you can
modify them in any way that other feature requests might
provide, as well as the things that can be edited now. They
could even be deleted. (Something other clients don't allow
that I frustratingly wish they did)
At this point I'd like to mention that I assume the status
items ARE objects in the code. Certainly how I would do it
after a couple of years of University courses in Computer
Science. Helps avoid nasty memory leaks that seem to
plague every program I've looked at on Mac OS X (Though
that might be something to do with the Quartz/Aqua
environment and not the programs themselves)
