Two morning classes were cancelled today. I was all awake with nothing to do. I decided I don't use Quicksilver enough, so I set about looking for some Adium plugins for Quicksilver. Within about three seconds I found that Quicksilver hasn't supported Adium in quite some time. After some more searching, it turned out that I wasn't the only one who felt disappointed by this. Here's the link to the original blog i found on this. http://blog.codahale.com/2007/01/22/send-as-im-adium-quicksilver/ basically what this does is allow you to go into adium and send a message without having to touch a mouse. i followed his instructions verbatim. it didn't work out too well because i never have added any script to quicksilver. before you do any of this, open up the application support folder in the library. click quicksilver. create a new empty folder called "Actions". close out. open up script editor. copy and paste this. Code: using terms from application "Quicksilver" on process text im_text repeat with im_delimiter_position from 1 to (length of im_text) if character im_delimiter_position of im_text = ":" then exit repeat end repeat set im_contact_name to characters 1 thru (im_delimiter_position - 1) of im_text as string set im_message to characters (im_delimiter_position + 2) thru (length of im_text) of im_text as string tell application "Adium" send (first contact whose (online is true and (display name starts with im_contact_name or UID starts with im_contact_name))) message im_message end tell return nothing end process text end using terms from save the pasted file into the actions folder you just made under application support in quicksilver. ~/Library/Application Support/Quicksilver/Actions Save the file as Send As IM.scpt Shout out to Coda Hale. He came up with all this.
