IIRC, AIM has some slash command for rolling n dice with s sides. I
don't recall the exact command, and it might only apply work in chat
rooms. I've only seen one person actually use it, and I know of nowhere
that it is documented.

I do not know of any other pango crashes on win32.

Like "Show buddy icons", I usually turn "Show idle times" off in favor
of a more compact display.

We could shrink the size of the tabs by including a single close button
which closes the active tab, like FireFox does. I don't know GTK well
enough to know if support for this is built-in or not.

If we keep the send button, then perhaps a send button on the right side
of the text-entry box? This would of course shrink that box, but I
think the box with the actual conversation in it is the important one to
keep large, and moving the Send button would leave more vertical space

//roll -dice 9 -sides 1
AOL System Host: Evan rolled 9 1-sided dice: 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1
It only works in AIM multiuser chat. It's handled serverside, not by
