Share Adium buddy lists across screen names Apps
If you're like me, you have multiple AIM screennames, but want them all to have the same buddies. In Adium, it's really easy to that.
  1. Set up your buddy list the way you want it on one screen name.
  2. Logout from that screen name.
  3. Login to another screen name.
  4. In "Account Configuration", select "Share contacts with:" and then select the screen name with perfect buddy list.
This works great for me... I don't have to worry about one screenname having buddies that my other doesn't.

Multiple Adium's Running
Authored by: verence on Nov 16, '02 06:35:46AM

If you'd like to have multiple Adiums running at the same time, just make a copy of 'Adium' in Applications and rename it. You can then have multiple copies running at once sharing the same setting information.

uploading duplicate buddy lists
Authored by: Moofisto on Nov 18, '02 12:16:47PM
Hmm. I like to use iChat, and this tip makes me think about using Adium, Fire, or Proteus in order to just make a new screen name (I'm sick of my current one), and populate it with my current list. Anyone have experience with this? Do any of these programs upload the list back to server, with the server buddy notes/info intact?
